Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and FBI Directory James Comey will give a members-only classified briefing to the House of Representatives on the terrorists attack in Paris.

The briefing will take place at 5:30pm ET on Tuesday. The briefing was requested by Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) following the terrorist attacks in Paris that left over 120 people dead. ISIS has claimed credit for the attacks. At least one of the terrorists involved in the attacks was able to enter into Europe by masquerading as a refugee.

Since the attack, Republican members of Congress have publicly rejected President Obama’s plan to allow Syrian refugees into the United States. Obama’s plan is to help 10,000 Syrian refugees resettle around the United States over the course of the next year.

President Obama has called the rejection of Syrian refugees into the United States a “betrayal of our values.”
