Congress needs to control the number of refugees admitted into the U.S. each year — not the President. This bill sets an acceptable number, 60,000 per year, wile improving refugee screening, and keeping foreign criminals out of the country.
Congress can't even agree every year on a budget — why should they get authority over something the President can handle? Even if Congress was quicker on its feet, the executive branch can respond more quickly (and with more information) to refugee issues.
