U.S. Representative Steny Hoyer, the number two Democrat in the House, said on Tuesday there would not be enough votes in the chamber to override President Barack Obama's promised veto of a bill tightening the clearance process for refugees from Syria and Iraq.

The Senate has not yet scheduled a vote on the measure. When it passed the House earlier this month, 47 Democrats broke with Obama to back it.
