The House will vote Thursday to enhance oversight of the screening process for refugees from Syria and Iraq, but it will not consider legislation to "pause" the program sought by Speaker Paul D. Ryan.  

Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told reporters a post-Paris attacks task force has crafted a bill to create "a new certification process" for these refugees. It will be posted online later tonight and go before the Rules Committee Wednesday.
