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 Op-Ed in Washington Times'The life-saving amendment; Two million Americans are alive today because of the Hyde Amendment'
By Chris Smith - Thursday, September 29, 2016 ANALYSIS/OPINION: Today marks 40 years since the life-saving Hyde Amendment was first enacted. This annual appropriations amendment stops taxpayer dollars from being used to fund most abortions and abortion coverage through government programs like Medicaid. Thanks to new analysis by the Charlotte Lozier Institute we now know that as many as two million children — some much older now — are alive today because of the Hyde amendment. Prior to enactment of Hyde, the Medicaid program paid for about 300,000 abortions annually. Research, including by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, has long shown that stopping taxpayer-funded abortion reduces the abortion rate. In an analysis released just this week, the Charlotte Lozier Institute estimates that the Hyde amendment saves as many as 60,000 lives each year. I remember the day several years ago when my friend and author of the amendment, Henry Hyde of Illinois, first learned tha
Genocide Survivors in Iraq and Syria Need a Lifeline
Christians and other genocide survivors across Iraq and Syria will receive long needed relief if bipartisan legislation, introduced by Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04) Chairman of a House panel on Global Human rights, becomes law when Congress returns in November. Without compromising security screening to protect the United States, the Iraq and Syria Genocide Relief and Accountability Act of 2016 (H.R. 5961) will give Christians, Yazidis and members of other persecuted religious and ethnic groups a new route into the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program.      “The Genocide Relief and Accountability Act would enable victims of genocide—Christians and other survivors of the murderous crimes perpetrated by ISIS—to receive an overseas interview and apply for refugee status, but would not guarantee acceptance and admission,” said Smith, who has chaired seven hearings focusing on genocide and other atrocities committed in Iraq and Syria. He said “These genocide survivors w
62 million missing girls from coercive population controlNew Report Shows China's Human Rights Record 'Utterly Disgraceful'
Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04), Chair of the bipartisan Congressional-Executive Commission on China (CECC) described China’s overall human rights record, detailed in the 2016 Annual Report released today, as “utterly disgraceful.” The report, the gold standard for Chinese human rights activists, concluded that the Chinese government’s efforts to silence dissent, suppress human rights lawyers, and control civil society, religious groups, and the Internet were broader in scope than during any other period since the Tiananmen Massacre in 1989. Click Here to read the Full Annual Report.      The 2016 Annual Report shows that Chinese government also continued to maintain coercive population control polices, abandoning the “One-Child Policy” for a universal “Two-Child Policy” in October, 2015.  According to the CECC’s Report, the vast infrastructure of government officials who implement coercive population control policies remains in place and the r
