Lawmakers in the Ohio House approved a resolution urging President Obama to stop the resettlement of Syrian refugees in the US.

Republican Rep. Tim Derickson (R-Oxford), who’s running for the southwest Ohio seat recently vacated by US House Speaker John Boehner, sponsored the resolution. “This resolution really is about screening, security screenings," Derickson said. "It’s not about not welcoming immigrants.”
