H.R. 4731, introduced by Congressman Raul Labrador (R-ID), would restore Congressional authority over refugee admissions. Among other things, the bill establishes an annual cap of 60,000 refugee admissions and prevents DHS from unilaterally waiving most grounds of inadmissibility when determining eligibility for refugee status.  The House Judiciary Committee marked up (amended) the bill on March 16 and passed the revised version out of committee.
