Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., attended a closed-door GOP caucus meeting at the Republican National Headquarters on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2015. House lawmakers voted Tuesday to approve legislation tightening controls on travel to the U.S. and requiring visas for anyone who has been in Iraq or Syria in the previous five years. “You have more than 5,000 individuals that have Western passports in this program that have gone to Iraq or Syria in the last five years,” said McCarthy. “Those are gaps that we need to fix.”
