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 ...

Courier Post letter to the editor on Smith autism bill***'Bill would protect children with autism'
The following is a letter to the editor by Dr. Suzanne Buchanan, the Executive Director of the advocacy group, Autism New Jersey based in Robbinsville, NJ: As Congress reconvenes to finish the year, we urge our representatives in the House of Representatives and Senate to support the passage of Kevin and Avonte’s Law (H.R. 4919/S. 2614), which would allow Justice Department grants to help protect children with developmental disabilities, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and seniors with Alzheimer’s, who are prone to wandering. This legislation would make grants available to law enforcement agencies and nonprofits to provide training to prevent wandering and implement lifesaving technology, such as law enforcement’s Project Lifesaver program, to find individuals who have wandered. Introduced by longtime autism community champion and founder/chair of the Congressional Autism Caucus, Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey, this sensible legislation is of critical importance to the
Asbury Park Press Newspaper Article on Smith Lyme Disease Efforts; 'Big news for chronic Lyme disease sufferers''With the help of Rep. Chris Smith and a Wall advocate, the House passed breakthrough le
For decades, Wall resident Pat Smith has implored the medical establishment to acknowledge the existence of chronic Lyme disease. On Wednesday, her quest took a big step forward. The House of Representatives passed the 21st Century Cures Act, a comprehensive health care bill that would establish a national working group on Lyme disease. The 14-member panel would include physicians with experience in treating tick-borne diseases, Lyme patients and advocates for those suffering from the condition. “This is really groundbreaking,” said Smith, president of national nonprofit Lyme Disease Association in Wall. “Prior to this we’ve never had anything at the federal level that permitted patients to be at the table with federal officials. It’s desperately needed.” Lyme disease affects nearly 400,000 people per year in the U.S., most of whom live in the northeast. For many who are diagnosed promptly, the standard month-long course of antibiotics mitigates the illnes
House Passes Defense Bill, Blocking TRICARE Cuts to Autism Therapy for Military Families
Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the $691 billion bill that directs critical U.S defense policy for 2017. Secured inside the bill is a targeted and critical amendment co-authored by U.S. Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04) which will ensure military families with a child on the autism spectrum will continue to have access to a key intervention therapy. The Smith provision protects coverage of and access to Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy—an evidence-based behavior intervention that is widely accepted among health care professionals as an effective therapy for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).       “Military life is defined by frequent changes of residence and schools, and prolonged absences of a parent, which can be particularly difficult for children with autism,” said Smith, founder and co-Chair of the House Autism Caucus. “ABA therapy is a proven and effective intervention that brings a
Hearing on China set for December 7Dissidents Who Have Suffered for Human Rights in China: A Look Back and a Look Forward
     Concrete improvements in human rights and the rule of law in China are directly linked to the security and prosperity of both the American and Chinese people. Advances in protecting human rights and curbing government violations of universal freedoms are essential components of economic development, mutual prosperity, domestic stability, and the type of trust and confidence necessary to strengthen bilateral and multilateral cooperation on a range of issues that will define the 21st century.      As documented by the 2016 Annual Report of the bipartisan Congressional-Executive Commission on China (CECC), a deteriorating human rights situation in China poses distinct and ongoing challenges to U.S. foreign policy.        Chinese, Tibetans, and Uyghurs offer unique perspectives on why robust U.S. human rights diplomacy is a critical foreign policy priority. In advance of Human Rights Day (December 10, 2016), and the si
