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 ...

Respect the Precious Lives of Unborn Children in US Foreign Aid
Today the Trump Administration announced the implementation of the expanded Mexico City Policy, now known as “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance.” Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04) issued the following statement:      “Today’s implementation by the State Department of the ‘Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance’–the reinstatement and expansion of Ronald Reagan’s 1984 Mexico City Policy—ensures that U.S. taxpayers will no longer subsidize foreign non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that perform or promote abortion on demand.      “This humane policy seeks to respect and protect the precious lives of unborn girls and boys from the violence of abortion.      “The new policy doesn’t cut global health assistance by so much as a penny.” ###
Hearing on Chinese Human Rights set for May 18Wives Petition for Their Husbands’ Freedom at House Hearing
Since July 2015, during what is called the “709 crackdown,” almost 250 lawyers and legal assistants have been detained in China. Most were released, but four were convicted last year on charges of subversion and a dozen others are in detention and likely to face trial. In addition, Taiwanese citizen Lee Ming-che is likely the first overseas NGO worker known to be detained in China since a draconian law gave police control over foreign non-government groups at the beginning of 2017.      Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04), co-Chairman of the Congressional Executive Commission on China, will convene a hearing where, through the testimony of the spouses of detained rights advocates, he and the House panel on Global Human Rights will discuss the detention, torture and disappearance of human rights lawyers and the Chinese government’s efforts to curtail both political dissent and independent civil society.       “The Chinese government is facing
Smith Addresses SummitWorld Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians
U.S. Rep. Chris Smith addressed the World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians on May 12 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC. Excerpts of his remarks:  Thirty-seven years ago during my first term in Congress, I read Tortured for Christ by Romanian pastor Richard Wurmbrand.    As so many of you know, it is the true story of unspeakable physical torture and psychological abuse of underground Christians under Romania’s dictator Nicolae Ceausescu and Pastor Wurmbrand’s harrowing 14-year incarceration. Sabina, his brave wife, also suffered prison and forced labor for her faith. I was moved to tears when I read it.  Like so many, I was inspired by Pastor Wurmbrand’s indomitable faith, breathtaking courage and hope and challenged by his admonishment to believers to cease enabling evil by our naiveté, cold-hearted indifference or cowardly complicity. After being drugged and beaten Pastor Wurmbrand said he was in such bad shape that he even forgot th
Five Years after Superstorm Sandy Still Work to Be DoneReps. Smith, Meng Reintroduce Bipartisan ‘Federal Disaster Assistance Nonprofit Fairness Act of 2017’
Nearly five years after Superstorm Sandy ravaged New Jersey’s coastline, many unmet needs remain, even after the victims received some insurance support and funding from several federal agencies to help rebuild, lift, renovate and mitigate damage from future natural disasters. Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04) and other members of the New Jersey Delegation still continue to close these gaps homeowners and individuals continue to face.      In addition to the individual funding shortfalls, there were many nonprofit religious organizations, churches, synagogues, and other religious centers that were completely shut out of getting federal assistance despite damage they sustained, and their leadership helping so many people in the immediate aftermath of the storm.      To help mark Hurricane Preparedness Week, and in an effort to address this specific flaw in U.S. disaster assistance policy, Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04) and lead Democrat co-sponsor Re
