Members of the Foreign Relations and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committees Sens. Bob Corker, Thomas R. Carper, Benjamin L. Cardin, Ron Johnson, Christopher S. Murphy and Chris Coons speak to CQ Roll Call about the Syrian refugee vetting process. Coons, a Democrat, requested Monday that his staff give him a detailed update on the vetting process procedures and changes needed. He said, “I want to continue to support our historic role as a country that welcomes refugees but not at the expense of our national security.”
