Central Illinois Republicans Darin LaHood and Rodney Davis joined all but two Republicans in the House and 47 Democrats in voting for a bill that would pause the admission of Syrian and Iraqi refugees in response to the Paris attacks. WGLT's Washington Correspondent Hanna Gutmann has the story.

Despite the president's threatened veto, the House passed the measure with a veto-proof majority.
