    The republicans passed the American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act of 2015 or the American SAFE Act of 2015 today with 242 aye votes from republicans and 47 from democrats. This is the CRS summary:

    This bill requires that, in addition to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) screening, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) shall take all actions necessary to ensure that each covered alien receives a background investigation before U.S. refugee admission.

    A "covered alien" is any alien applying for U.S. refugee admission who:
    ? is a national or resident of Iraq or Syria,
    ? has no nationality and whose last habitual residence was in Iraq or Syria, or
    ? has been present in Iraq or Syria at any time on or after March 1, 2011.
    A covered alien:
    ? may not be admitted as a refugee until the FBI certifies to DHS and the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) that he or she has received a background investigation sufficient to determine whether the alien is a U.S. security threat; and
    ? may only be admitted to the United States after DHS, with the unanimous concurrence of the FBI and the DNI, certifies to Congress that he or she is not such a threat. [The Directors of the FBI and the DNI have indicated recently that they do not think there is enough information to make such a determination.]

    The Inspector General of DHS shall conduct annual risk-based reviews of all certifications.

    DHS shall report monthly to Congress on the total number of admission applications for which a certification was made and the number of covered aliens for whom such a certification was not made for the preceding month. The report shall include for each covered alien for whom a certification was not made the concurrence or nonconcurrence of each person whose concurrence was required by the certification.

    Nancy G. may find this disappointing, but net immigration to the US from Mexico is now reported to be negative, with more Mexicans leaving the US to return to Mexico every year than there are Mexicans coming into the US.

    If this trend continues and extends to other Latin American countries, Nancy G. may find herself in a real dilemma - a shortage of Hispanics in America whom she can hate.

    With regard to the House bill tightening restrictions on Syrian/Iraqi refugees that Nolan describes (without either endorsing it or opposing it himself, to be fair), it seems to me to be far too weak.

    The bill does not, for example, require that each refugee must be personally endorsed by a two thirds majority of state governors before being allowed into the US. Nor does it provide that any refugee under the age of 5 should have to be unanimously endorsed by all 50 state governors before being allowed in.

    Don't these Representative care about making America really safe? Or is this just Paul Ryan selling out his party's right wing, as they warned he might do?

    With further regard to the House refugee bill, even though the Constitution provides that once a refugee (or any other non-US citizen) is lawfully admitted to the US, he or she can chose to enter or live in any state that he or she wishes (something that at least 26 of our state governors, including at least one Democrat, seem to be blissfully unaware of) some way should be found to make an exception for New Jersey, whose Governor Christie has so heroically warned us against the heightened threat level presented by Syrian refugees under the age of five (just as many Americans believed in the 1930's that there would be a danger in letting in Jewish refugee children who were fleeing Hitler).

    At the very least, any bill dealing with refugees should include a proviso to the effect that Governor Christie is authorized to close the George Washington Bridge to entry by any Syrian refugee children aged 1-4.
