Congress stops playing games and passes a clean Bill to fund DHS

Last week, the Senate passed a DHS appropriations measure that did not include the House amendments that would block DAPA implementation and DACA expansion by a vote of 68-31. Today, in a surprising move, Speaker Boehner allowed for the Senate-passed version of the DHS funding bill to be voted on in the House. The bill passed with bipartisan support in the House, 257-167 (with 75 Republicans joining 182 Democrats), and will now be sent to President Obama’s desk for his signature. The bill will fund DHS through September 2015. The bill that passed does not include language that would prohibit the implementation of the President’s November 2014 executive actions on immigration.
