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 Presented Inaugural Autism Award
During the national advocacy summit of the Autism Society of America, Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04) received the very first “Ignite 4 Autism, Congressional Champion Award,” given in recognition of his past and ongoing commitment to individuals with autism and their families.      “I want to thank the Autism Society of America for its work to highlight the needs of individuals with autism and their families, and its tireless work to implement federal policies that address these needs,” said Smith, co-founder and co-chair of the Congressional Coalition for Autism Research and Education and prime author of three major laws to provide federal funding for autism research and services. “I want to thank all present here today for your commitment to federal advocacy, as we use this occasion to focus and redouble our efforts. Congress must continue to pass common-sense legislation to continue—and expand—the critical investments we have already made, and we cannot d
Planned Parenthood has killed 7 million childrenStop Coercing States to Fund Planned Parenthood
In strong support of H.J. Res. 43, Rep. Smith delivered the following statement on the floor during debate in the House today: Mr. Speaker, I thank the distinguished Chair, Mrs. Black, for her leadership on this resolution.      Many Americans oppose giving tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, 56% according to a November 2016 poll.      And with good reason.      Subsidized by over $500 million taxpayers’ dollars each year, Planned Parenthood dismembers or chemically poisons a baby to death every two minutes—killing over 7 million innocent children since 1973.      Planned Parenthood is “Child Abuse Incorporated.”  Undercover videos in 2015 exposed in numbing candor, several high-level Planned Parenthood leaders nonchalantly talking about procuring children’s organs for a price. They describe altering gruesome dismemberment procedures to preserve intact livers, hearts and lungs from freshly killed babie
Smith-authored legislation to protect civilians introducedEthiopian Government Must Stop Rights Violations
Joined by victims of torture at the hands of the Ethiopian government, Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04) and Rep. Mike Coffman (CO-06), came together this afternoon to bring to light the actions of the oppressive government of President Mulatu Teshome.      “For too long the government of Ethiopia has used violence, including the shooting of peaceful protestors, to snuff out any opposition,” said Smith, Chairman of the House Panel on Africa. “Simple conversations with the Ethiopian Government have proven to not be enough—the actions of the government have intensified rather than moderated.”      “Feyisa Lilesa helped bring this issue to the international stage last year, but we must not let these violations fade from the public eye,” Smith continued, referencing the Ethiopian Olympic silver medalist who showed a symbol of solidarity with the Oromo people in the 2016 Olympics.      The press conference coincided with th
Ending the Use of Child Soldiers
In honor of the International Day against the Use of Child Soldiers, marked across the globe this past weekend, a bill designed to help stop the scourge of Child Soldiers was introduced today by U.S. Rep Chris Smith (NJ-04), Chairman of the House panel on Africa.      “No child should be forced or enticed to carry a gun or to kill.  No child should be used by fighting forces—or anyone—as a sex slave,” said Smith, author of the landmark Trafficking Victims Protection Act, which created the Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report. “The legislation I am introducing today would insure that the current Child Soldiers Prevention Act of 2008 is implemented as intended by Congress—and that the U.S. is not complicit in partnering with child traffickers.”      In the Child Soldiers Prevention Act (CSPA) of 2008, Congress provided the Executive Branch the tools needed to identify countries where military or government-supported armed groups
