Smith Accuses Obama Admin. of Giving China a Pass ...

The New Jersey congressman behind a landmark anti-human trafficking law is accusing the Obama administration of giving China a pass in its latest report on the global trafficking epidemic that has been likened to slavery. The State Department report cited nearly two dozen countries for failing to meet basic standards, nearly double the number in the 2010 report. The rating could subject any of them to U.S. sanctions. China, however, was not on the Tier 3 list of severe offenders. Instead, the country was kept for the seventh year in a row on a separate "watch list."The watch list is the ...

Chris Smith's African Abortion Adventure

Most members of Congress spent last week's recess back in their districts, talking to their constituents and getting a sense of what Americans want their elected officials to be doing back in Washington. But Rep. Chris Smith, a New Jersey Republican, had other plans: He spent part of the break on a taxpayer-funded trip to Kenya, where he slammed the country's new constitution for allowing abortions in cases when the health of the mother is at risk. Kenyan abortion restrictions go far beyond those in American law, and Kenya's new constitution, approved overwhelmingly last August, codifies a ...

Smith Commends Mladic’s Conviction for Genocide
In response to the verdict issued today by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia on the trial of Ratko Mladic, Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04), chair of the House global human rights subcommittee, said that the decision should serve as a notice that all perpetrators of war crimes and human rights abuses must brought to justice. “This should be lesson to all those committing genocide and war crimes today—there is no statute of limitations on these crimes and we will document your crimes, hunt you down and bring you to justice. Accountability is not a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’,” Smith said. Mladic, the commander of Bosnian Serb forces during the civil war in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 1990s, was convicted today on 10 out of 11 charges of war crimes, crimes against humanity committed in the conflict. Mladic is remembered especially for his role in atrocities committed in the siege of Sarajevo and at Srebrenica in 1995, when over 8,000 Bosnian Muslims
Rep. Smith Condemns Terrorist Attack on Muslim Worshipers in Egypt
Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ) today released the following statement on the horrific terror attack on a mosque in Egypt. “I mourn the devastating loss of life that resulted from the recent terrorist attack on a mosque in Egypt. This meticulously planned massacre targeted hundreds of innocents, including dozens of children, peacefully worshipping during Friday prayers. “The terrorists responsible for this atrocity hold in contempt the life and liberty of all Egyptians. The United States should support the Egyptian people in their battle against this threat and support their aspiration to live in freedom, peace, and security.”
Trentonian article on Intl Megan's Law'Over 23 years later, Megan’s Law is still expanding, this time worldwide'
By Jeff Edelstein, Trentonian Staff -   It’s hard to believe it’s been 23 years since the death of Megan Kanka, the Hamilton 7-year-old who was raped and murdered by a twice-convicted sex offender. It is, without question, the most heinous and brutal crime in modern Mercer County history. It’s something no one who lives around here will ever forget. Of course, the tragedy eventually led to the creation of Megan’s Law, first here in New Jersey, and then across all 50 states and Washington, D.C. The premise of the law is simple: When a convicted child sex offender moves into town, they have to register with local authorities and people in the neighborhood are notified by their presence. I’m all for the law, for the record. It’s just a shame we need it. Because if it was up to me, anyone convicted of molesting a child would never get a chance to “move into town.” Life imprisonment is fine by me. Heck, you could convince me of the death penalty in certain ca
Congressional Hearing on Global Efforts to Treat and Cure Alzheimer’s Disease
    Millions of people worldwide have some form of dementia and suffer from a steady deterioration of memory and cognitive skills. Yet the vast majority of those with Alzheimer’s and related dementias have not received a diagnosis of their condition, and of those who have, many are unable to access the standard of care that they need.     Earlier in 2017, the World Health Organization (WHO) adopted a global plan to address Alzheimer’s and set targets for countries to meet to establish plans for Alzheimer’s awareness, research, treatment, and prevention. WHO called on countries who have not yet adopted their own plans on Alzheimer’s to do so.     “Today, 47 million people worldwide live with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, and this number is estimated to grow to 131 million by 2050 as populations age,” Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04), Chairman of the House panel on global health, stated. “Congress has both a moral and practica
