BREAKING: The House Just Made Obama MAD Regarding ‘REFUGEES’ But You’ll LOVE IT

How is BHO going to react to this major move against him and his ‘innocent refugees’?

The U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday defied President Obama by passing a bill to restrict the influx of refugees into the US who are fleeing fighting in Iraq and Syria.

The chamber voted 289-132 for legislation that would impose new standards on the refugees, as fears grow of a mainland attack by an ISIS fighter posing as a refugee.

It marks Congress’s first response to last week’s bombings and shootings by ISIS militants in Paris, killing 129 people.

It also marks a significant showdown with the White House, which had threatened on Wednesday to veto the bill because it ‘would introduce unnecessary and impractical requirements that would unacceptably hamper our efforts to assist some of the most vulnerable people in the world.’

Forty-seven Democrats defected from the Obama administration to support Thursday’s bill.

The bill’s prospects are dimmer in the Senate, where the upper chamber’s rules give minority parties more leverage, so Democrats there could unite to block the bill or at least deny a veto-proof margin.

A two-thirds margin of both the Senate and the House are necessary to override a veto. That means 67 votes in the Senate and  290 votes – one short of Thursday’s total – in the House.

An override would also require all House members to keep their positions, plus flip one vote. In the Senate, initial passage is possible but an override margin is far from certain.
