H.R. 4038: American SAFE Act of 2015

Introduced just Tuesday and easily passing the House today, H.R. 4038 or the American SAFE Act of 2015 is the Congressional response to the post-Paris fears of Syrian refugees.

The proposal, which will now make its way to the Senate, would require that no refugee (from Iraq or Syria) be admitted to the United States until:

the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation certifies to the Secretary of Homeland Security and the Director of National Intelligence that each covered alien has received a background investigation that is sufficient to determine whether the covered alien is a threat to the security of the United States...

[And]

...the Secretary of Homeland Security, with the unanimous concurrence of the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Director of National Intelligence, certifies to the appropriate Congressional Committees that the covered alien is not a threat to the security of the United States.

President Obama has vowed to veto the bill should it find its way to his desk.
