 width=There's a less than stellar review for President Obama's Oval Office speech on the ISIS threat from Congressman Rodney Davis.

The House has passed legislation that Davis says is deisgned to prevent ISIS from infiltrating the Syrian and Iraqi refugee program. Last month, the House passed the American Security Against Foreign Enemies (SAFE) Act to ensure comprehensive background checks are conducted on every Syrian and Iraqi refugee seeking admittance into the U.S.
