united states. so the bill we would propose would strictly limit that. >> reporter: house republicans also plan to introduce a bill today adding roadblocks for syrians and iraqi refugees. that bill would require the fbi to conduct background checks and the department of homeland security would need to certify refugees were not a threat. all this is drawing sharp criticism from representative mike honda who was in a japanese interment camp. we cannot let the extremist perpetrators drive us into such a misguided action for it is when we allow them to lead as you way from our principles and ideals that we as a country suffer. the white house says they will veto the bill saying it would undermine efforts to help refugees. kiet do, kpix 5. kiet has a jacket on but kind of nice outside. >> that's nothing! you know what?
