Syrian refugee Dania poses for a portrait at the Sacramento, California apartment complex she lives in.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday the Syrian refugee issue will likely be addressed in a must-pass government funding bill this month. The Republican leader said the spending bill was a “work in progress” but that “the refugee issue is likely to be dealt with in some way” in that legislation, which faces a Dec. 11 deadline for passage by Congress. McConnell did not say whether the spending bill, needed to avert a government shutdown after Dec. 11, would have language to further tighten controls on Syrians seeking asylum in the United States or instead focus on revising a “visa waiver” program.
