Rep. Hudson Pushes Refugee Bill
Update: A vote to move the refugee legislation to the U.S. Senate floor fell five votes short of the 60 necessary.
On Wednesday, a U.S. Senate committee will take up a bill which would make it much more difficult for Syrian and Iraqi refugees to be re-settled in America. The legislation, known as American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act, was proposed by 8th District Congressman Richard Hudson, a Republican whose district stretches from east Charlotte to Lumberton. WFAE’s Tom Bullock recently spoke with the congressman about his bill.
