Brooklyn’s Congressional Delegation Votes On Syrian Refugees

“In the wake of last week’s attacks in Paris, The House passed H.R. 4038, the “American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act of 2015,” to stem the flow of refugees from Syria and Iraq in a vote of 289 to 137. President Obama has agreed to admit 10,000 refugees and may potentially veto the bill. With two-thirds of those voting in support of the bill, there are enough votes to override a veto. House Republicans strongly supported the bill, as well as 47 Democrats.”
