A la Boehner, Ryan Blocks Amendments to Refugee Bill

Paul Ryan’s First Major Act as Speaker of the House: Block Any Amendments to Flawed Refugee Resettlement Bill


As Breitbart News’s Matthew Boyle reported:

“But despite McCaul’s and the committee’s tough-sounding rhetoric, the bill—several congressional aides and the actual text of the legislation confirm—simply requires one new step for Syrian and Iraqi refugee admittance and resettlement: That the Director of National Intelligence, the director of the FBI and the Secretary of Homeland Security approve any such refugees beforehand. Each of those people work for President Obama at the pleasure of the president.”

“’That’s like asking Janet Napolitano to verify the border is secure,’” one GOP aide told Breitbart News. “Of course they are going to approve them without hesitation.”
