  • U.S. House votes to restrict Iraqi and Syrian refugees entry

    The US House of Representatives has passed a bill that tightens restrictions on the resettlement of Syrian and Iraqi refugees, amid security concerns.

    Dozens of Democrats joined Republicans as the House passed the measure 289-137, in a rebuke to the White House.

    President Barack Obama has said he will veto the legislation.

    The bill follows the attacks in Paris that left 129 people dead, claiming to the be the work of Islamic State.

    Supreme Court appears split over Obama's immigration plan

    The Supreme Court appeared closely divided on Monday as it weighed whether to revive President Barack Obama's plan to spare from deportation roughly 4 million immigrants in the country illegally, raising the possibility of a 4-4 deadlock that would block the program.

    Based on questions asked during the 90-minute oral argument in a case that tests the limits of presidential powers, the court's four liberal justices seemed poised to back Obama while the four conservatives were more skeptical.
