  • Rep. Walker quizzes State Department on Syrian refugees

    Rep. Mark Walker, R-N.C., joined in a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee grilling of Department of Homeland Security and Department of State officials on Thursday morning in a hearing called to review the federal government's process for screening Syrian refugees and visa waiver travelers. Walker went toe-to-toe with Assistant Secretary of State for Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration Anne Richard over the number of Christian Syrian refugees who have been resettled in the United States. He balked at her testimony that more Christians aren't seeking refugee status because they feel safe under Syrian President Bashar Hafez al-Assad.

  • Senate votes to fund government through Feb. 8

    On Monday, The Senate advanced a bill reopening federal agencies through Feb. 8 after Democrats relented and lifted their blockade against the legislation. The shutdown began Saturday after Democrats derailed a Republican measure that would have kept government open until Feb. 16. Democrats wanted to pressure the GOP to cut a deal protecting young immigrants from deportation and boosting federal spending.
