Speaker Ryan Calls for 'Pause' in Syrian Refugee Program

House Speaker Paul Ryan is calling for a “pause” to the Syrian refugee program, saying Tuesday the House will act this week to address concerns that terrorists could slip into the United States under the guise of refugees. Republicans on Capitol Hill as well as several GOP presidential candidates have come out against the administration’s plans to admit thousands of Syrian refugees following the Paris attacks. Nearly 30 governors have also said their states won’t cooperate with resettling of Syrian refugees.
