North Florida Congresswoman Gwen Graham voted in favor of a controversial bill Thursday that could make it more difficult for Syrian refugees to enter the US.


In the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks more than 30 state governors have asked Congress to stop Syrian Refugees from resettling in the U.S. Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill to tighten controls on refugees coming to the U.S. from Syria and Iraq.
