Senate Democrats Block GOP Move on Obama Immigration Policy - Funding for Department of Homeland Security Hangs in the Balance

From The Wall Street Journal:

Senate Democrats Tuesday blocked a House bill aimed at thwarting President Barack Obama ’s immigration executive action, leaving the chambers at an impasse abou how to prevent the Homeland Security Department from running out of money at month’s end.

In an early illustration of the limits of the new GOP majority’s power in the Senate, the House immigration bill stalled on a 51-48 procedural vote in the Senate.

All Democrats opposed the bill, which would fund the Homeland Security Department through September and gut Mr. Obama’s immigration policies in recent years, including his decision last November to shield millions of illegal immigrants from deportation on his own.
