Floor summary: DEBATE - The House proceeded with 10 minutes of debate on the Thompson (MS) motion to recommit with instructions pending a reservation of a point of order. The instructions contained in the motion seek to require the bill to be reported back to the House with an amendment requiring the Department of Homeland Security to have procedures in place to ensure that it has requisite information to confirm the identity of refugee applicants; authorizing a comprehensive review of refugees to identify security threats; requiring DHS to certify that a comprehensive review was undertaken; and providing for monthly DHS reports on refugee applications from Syria and Iraq and DHS Inspector General reviews of DHS certifications. Subsequently, the reservation of a point of order was withdrawn.
