Mr. Ross (for himself, Mr. Posey, Mr. Tipton, and Mr. Collins of New York) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary
To prohibit obligation of Federal funds for admission of refugees from Syria, and for other purposes.
Beginning on the date of the enactment of this Act, no Federal funds may be obligated for the admission into the United States under section 207 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1157) as a refugee (as defined in section 101(a)(42) of such Act (8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(42))) of any alien described in subsection (b).
An alien is described in this subsection if—
the country of the alien’s nationality is Syria; or
in the case of an alien having no nationality, the country in which the alien last habitually resided was Syria.
The prohibition in subsection (a) shall terminate only upon the approval in the House of Representatives and in the Senate of a resolution terminating such prohibition.
