The bill would bar refugees from Syria and Iraq, who already face 18 to 24 months of screening, from entering the country unless top government officials certify that they do not pose a security threat.Despite Obamas objections, 47 of his fellow Democrats joined Republicans to pass the legislation by 239-137, generating Republican hope of mustering a two-thirds majority in the 435-member chamber to override a veto.Pelosi, who cast a “no” vote, said some Democrats who had voted for it had assured her they would not back a Republican attempt to override Obamas veto, if it came to that.”The votes will be there to sustain a veto, no question,” she said.Senate Republican leaders have yet to schedule a vote on the House bill passed last month. It must pass both chambers before reaching Obamas desk and then garner the support of two-thirds majorities in both houses to survive a veto.Many Americans have been clamoring for tighter border controls since the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris, which killed 130 people, amid reports that one attacker had reached Europe by posing as a refugee.Pelosi said Democrats wanted strong security, and were working with Republicans on a separate bill tightening entry requirements for visitors from countries that currently have visa requirements waived.She said targeting refugees went against Americas role as a refuge for downtrodden immigrants.”Its really a sad thing. Its almost as if they decided to turn the Statue of Liberty around,” Pelosi said. 8.03KRelated StoriesUS plans to send special ops force to IraqUS has to do something, Obama saysUS House approves bill to suspend refugee programOpinions mixed on Syrian refugee aidPhotoUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaGerman trains collide near Duesseldorf, several people injuredLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchEfforts needed for sustainable projects1st Panda cub born in France named Yuan MengFree trade studies agreed on as Li meets with Canadian PM TrudeauChina-JapanChina-USChina-AfricaChina-EuropeLi tells Japanese business leaders its time for bilateral cooperationChina-Japan meet seeks cooperationGroup of lawmakers visit notorious Yasukuni Shrine in JapanJapan can offer experience, expat saysChina-Japan ties seen at dialogue as benefit to regionChina, Japan officials exchange views on security issues at 15th dialogueChinese music finds new foothold in United StatesC919 flies toward air worthinessPolitical leaders: Sino-US relations to growChina vows steps after US launches probe into aluminum tradeGates is added to top-tier Chinese academyYao helps AB InBev fight alcohol abuseAction urged over pollutionUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaChina unveils Model Confucius Institute edifice in Ghana universityChina vows to deepen bilateral ties with new Zimbabwe govtChinese, African parties meet to share wisdom on modernization2nd China-Africa Investment Forum begins in MoroccoLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchPeak performance by Chinese nurse on Scotlands mountains9-month festival of Chinese art, heritage to be staged in Liverpool, UK, next yearChina eyes closer economic, trade cooperation with BelarusPremier calls to enhance trade liberalization and facilitation in SCOPremier: China to advance production capacity with UzbekistanAsia PacificUS & CanadaEuropeAfricaMiddle EastChinese tourists go to South KoreaChina-Japan meet seeks cooperationUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingBelt and Road a great opportunity: Uzbek officialKwaussie wins Australias word of the yearJapan can offer experience, expat saysTrudeau visits Sina WeiboChina, Canada agree to issue joint statement on climate changeDemocrats stand united against GOP tax billUS quits talks on global migration pactTensions triggered over possible moveSino-Canadian bilateral trade ties to deepen furtherMay gets little gasp as EU extends deadline for sufficient progress in Brexit talksRussia banned from Pyeongchang Winter OlympicsGerman trains collide near Duesseldorf, several people injuredLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchBoth first ladies name panda cub Yuan MengLiu Yandong heralds bilateral cooperation in education and researchEthiopian FM urges strengthened Ethiopia-China tiesUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaAction urged over pollutionBelt and Road Initiative to help countries achieve UN goals: officialChina unveils Model Confucius Institute edifice in Ghana universityMorocco king holds historic talks with South African president in AbidjanYemens ex-president Saleh, relatives killed by HouthisTrump recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital would raise regional tensionsYemen rattled by raids as clashes spreadSquash a perfect match for girl refugees in JordanSyrian talks in Geneva to continue to Dec 15: UN envoyAll parties in Syria urged to join talksMost PopularHot TopicsMyanmar electionChina and JapanDPRKSyrias refugee crisisGreek debt crisisSouth China SeaMH370Iran nuclear talksMERS virusNepal earthquakeReporters JournalChina hopes world-class soccer investments pay off at homeLessons for the world come from remote savannahs of ZimbabweChinese bargain hunters are changing the retail gameHighlightsXi to attend climate talks in Paris, visit Zimbabwe, S AfricaPremier Li attends ASEAN meetingsXi attends G20 and APEC meetings…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
