Even the federal government admits that its process for vetting refugees is inadequate, so it makes sense to pause refugee admissions from countries where terror groups like ISIS have a strong presence while security screenings are improved.
This bill does nothing to improve the vetting process, and if Congress is going to block refugee admissions from certain countries for even a short period it should be working towards a more secure system where all refugees can be screened and admitted.
