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 ...

Hearing on Liberia set for September 13thDemocracy in Liberia Topic of House Hearing
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the current President of Liberia, has taken small but important steps in the advancement of democracy and governance during her two terms leading the country, including separating herself from other African leaders by not pushing for an unconstitutional third term. This hearing will analyze the possible directions the country may take once her replacement is sworn into office.  “Liberia, a country established in the 1800s by freed slaves from the United States, has a special place in U.S. foreign policy toward Africa,” said Smith. “After seeing democratic progress under President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf during her two terms in office, this hearing will examine the prospects for further consolidation of democracy and governance by the incoming Administration.” Who:               Chairman Smith (NJ-04), Senior Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the House Subcommittee
Smith Speaks at 9/11 Remembrance9/11 Memorial Ceremony Held in Colts Neck, NJ
Congressman Chris Smith (NJ04) and other officials commemorated the terrorist attacks 16 years ago today against targets in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania that killed nearly 3,000 people including hundreds of New Jersey residents.   In addition to Smith and other officials, also speaking at a Colts Neck, N.J. commemoration was Theresa Furmato Velardi, whose father, Paul James Furmato, was a sales trader and a Vice-President at Cantor Fitzgerald in the World Trade Center. She recounted that fateful day when she lost her father and her family was changed forever. She was six years old.   “I remember waking up morning after morning watching my mother fight back her tears and try her best to raise three children on her own,” Velardi said. “I remember waking up every day after the Twin Towers crashed wondering, ‘does this mean Dad is really never coming home?’ I remember being a Girl Scout in Colts Neck and having to skip Father-Daughter Dances because my father
Smith Chairs Congressional Hearing on Liberia’s Upcoming ElectionFuture of Democracy in Liberia Topic of House Hearing w State Dept., USAID, Human Rights Groups
The departure from office of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia, who has distinguished herself from many other African leaders by not pushing for an unconstitutional third term, was the focus of a congressional hearing held by U.S. Rep. Chris Smith, who cautioned that all the possible directions the country may take once elections are held this October must be examined closely.   Liberia, a country established in the 1800s by freed slaves from the United States, has a special place in U.S. foreign policy toward Africa. After seeing democratic progress under President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf during her two terms in office, the U.S. must consider the prospects for further consolidation of democracy and governance by a new Administration, said Chairman Smith (NJ-04), Senior Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations.

Smith Bills Take Aim at Two Unjust Policies Uncovered in Superstorm Sandy
Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) is leading the charge, for a second time, to reform two federal disaster relief and recovery programs, one that discriminates against faith-based organizations and another that forces individual victims to take on new debt while boxing them out of possible federal grants. These flaws surfaced during the Superstorm Sandy recovery effort and both fixes are now gaining support as Congress prepares a larger recovery package for victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.      “Superstorm Sandy taught us tough lessons—in the preparation for a storm and its aftermath, it showed us some significant flaws in our federal assistance programs,” said Smith, whose constituents in coastal areas in Monmouth and Ocean counties were hit hard by the Superstorm Sandy in 2012. “The Equity for Disaster Victims Act of 2017 (H.R. 3674) and the Federal Disaster Assistance Nonprofit Fairness Act of 2017 (H.R. 2405) address injustices in our disaster recovery
