Senate Funds DHS, Will Consider Immigration Separately

After weeks of impasse over blocking Barack Obama’s executive amnesty, the Senate finally moved. “The stalemate over funding for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was broken Wednesday as the Senate voted 98-2 to proceed to legislation that would prevent a partial government shutdown,” The Hill reports. “Democrats agreed to support the DHS bill after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) agreed to strip out provisions inserted by the House that would reverse President Obama’s executive actions on immigration. The only votes against proceeding to the bill came from Sens. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) and Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.).” Now the legislation will move back to the House, where Republicans have steadfastly rejected doing anything less than blocking Obama. We appreciate the sentiment, but the battle has become House vs. Senate and Republican vs. Republican rather than the GOP Congress against Obama. That’s not going to win much.
