US immigration reform debate

Editor's note: The U.S. House has approved a bill funding the Department of Homeland Security through the rest of the fiscal year, and it does not include immigration conditions. President Obama is expected to sign the Senate-passed legislation. This ends a months-long stalemate and shutdown threat to the DHS. Congressional conservatives wanted a bill funding of the agency to include provisions blocking President Obama's immigration actions, but those efforts were blocked by Democrats in the Senate last week. - Stephanie

Editor's note: The U.S. House and Senate return today and will again have until Friday night to reach a deal on funding the Department of Homeland Security. Last Friday was the original deadline, but lawmakers passed a one-week stopgap bill. Senators are expected to take a procedural vote on whether or not to move toward a conference committee with the House, The Hill reports. Senate Democrats have said they will work to block an attempt to go to conference. House Republicans will be working to reach a deal on President Obama's immigration executive order and DHS funding. - Stephanie
