Both House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have pushed for the White House to hold off any plans to take in any additional Syrian refugees at this point, stressing that it is better to be safe than sorry in making sure proper vetting procedures are in place and being implemented to make sure no terrorists are part of the lot. Most of the GOP presidential candidates have echoed similar sentiments, as have a couple dozen Republican governors, and there is a hint even some Democratic lawmakers are considering it. The White House for now is holding firm, but Republican lawmakers have indicated they will legislatively try to stop the program if President Obama refuses to.

French police are hunting for a second fugitive directly involved in the deadly Paris attacks officials said Tuesday after France made an unprecedented demand that its European Union allies support its military action against the Islamic State group. The disclosure of a second possible fugitive came as France launched new airstrikes on the militants’ stronghold in Syria and as Vladimir Putin ordered a Russian military cruiser to work with France on fighting ISIS in Syria and as French and Belgian police were already looking for key suspect Salah Abdeslam, 26, whose suicide-bomber brother Brahim died in the attacks Friday night. The Paris attacks have galvanized international determination to confront the militants.
