A congressman has introduced legislation that would halt the resettlement of UN certified refugees in the U.S. pending a full study on the program’s impact on the nation’s economy and national security. According to U.S. government data, nearly 500,000 new immigrants have come to the U.S. under the resettlement program since Obama took office.
Rep.
