House votes to block Syrian refugees despite White House veto threat | 19 Nov 2015 | Tapping into heightened security fears after the Paris terrorist attacks, House Republicans — joined by many Democrats — rebuffed President Obama on Thursday and overwhelmingly approved legislation that would in effect halt the resettlement of refugees from Syria and Iraq to the U.S. Faced with a White House veto, Republican leaders in Congress are threatening to include the restrictions in a must-pass spending bill to keep the federal government running past Dec. 11, raising the specter of another government shutdown. The House bill would require leaders of the nation's security apparatus – the director of national intelligence and the heads of the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI – to certify that refugees who are admitted pose no security threat.
