McConnell says discussing Syrian refugee legislation with White House
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday a pause or moratorium was needed in President Barack Obama's plan to admit refugees from Syria and Iraq and he was discussing legislation about the refugees with the White House. Speaking to reporters at the Capitol, McConnell also said a strategy was needed that would give Syrian refugees the opportunity to stay in their own country.
