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 ...

NJ.com reportsRobbinsville Fire Dept. awarded $22K federal grant
BY BRANDON SCALEA  ROBBINSVILLE -- Township firefighters will receive federal funding to update their medical equipment, U.S. Rep. Chris Smith recently announced. Smith said the Robbinsville Fire Department will be awarded a $22,740 grant from the Department of Homeland Security, through the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) Program.  Smith said in a statement the grant will be used to purchase four defibrillators and one CPR device.

Smith Statement on New Cuba Policy
Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04), Chairman of the House panel on global human rights, released the following statement on the Trump Administration’s New Cuba Policy:      “I am encouraged by President Trump’s seeking to curtail the flow of funds to the communist Castro regime in Cuba. This is the first step in halting the Obama Administration’s misguided policy—which overlooked egregious human rights abuses, including the regime’s complicity in human trafficking, in order to further his personal ‘legacy.’ I would further encourage the President to set concrete and measurable milestones which tie any liberalization in Cuba policy to progress in respect for human rights and democracy. To that end, I intend to reintroduce the Cuba Human Rights Act, which protects the human rights of the Cuban people, demands the return of fugitives from justices such as convicted cop killer Joanne Chesimard and requires the Castro regime to compensate those whose property they stol
Voice of America News Article on Smith Hearing'US Congressional Leaders Look for Answers to Africa's Food Insecurity'
By Salem Solomon, VOA Staff Writer -   In 2003, Roger Thurow was a journalist assigned to cover the looming famine in Ethiopia. Upon arriving in the country, he was given a warning by a World Food Program worker who told him that “looking into the eyes of someone dying of hunger becomes a disease of the soul.” Thurow soon found that to be all too true. While visiting the emergency feeding tents he met a little boy named Hagirso who was five years old and weighed under 14 kilograms when his dad carried him in from their village. “He was severely malnourished and basically disappearing,” Thurow recalled. “That haunted me. Hagirso, the whole setting, everything that was going on in the emergency feeding tents and just the magnitude of the famine. It was the first famine of the 21st century. What’s wrong with us that we brought famine into this new millennium of ours?” PHOTO: Adel Bol, 20
