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 ...

Kenyan abortion restrictions go far beyond those in American law, and Kenya's new constitution, approved overwhelmingly last August, codifies a ...

Along with Smith, attendees included Reps. Ted Deutch (D-FL), Nita Lowey (D-NY), Marc Veasey (D-TX) and Eliot Engel (D-NY).      “Jewish women and men comprise less than 2% of the U.S. population,” said Smith, co-Chair of the Taskforce, speaking to a group of international press. “However, more than 50% of hate crimes annually targeted at a religious group in this country are aimed at the Jewish community. We must move quickly to prosecute those who are perpetrating this hate—bomb threats can very quickly become terrorist attacks.”      Since the beginning of the year, more than 100 Jewish Community Centers, also known as JCC’s, have been targets of bomb threats,
