Fox News reporter Alex Hogan on the Texas synagogue suspect long criminal and mental health history in England.

EXCLUSIVE: Two Republican senators are introducing a bill that they say would secure the Department of Homeland Security's Visa Waiver Program by requiring information sharing agreements between government agencies and involved countries, and creating stricter penalties for non-compliance, months after a British citizen with a long criminal history entered the U.S. and took members of a Texas Synagogue hostage earlier this year.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz plan to introduce the legislation, "Securing the Visa Waiver Program Act," on Monday. 

The bill would codify an agreement between countries in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) in order to better share information about suspected terrorists and other individuals who may be on the terrorist watch list. In addition, it would enhance law enforcement cooperation, sharing of criminal history information and set up an enforcement mechanism to ensure compliance by involved countries.
