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

Editor's note: House conservatives rallied against a three-week Department of Homeland Security funding bill because it did not include anything to block President Obama's executive actions on immigration, The Hill reports. And House Democrats were united against the short-term bill. The Senate passed a "clean" DHS funding bill earlier Friday, which did not include anything to overturn Obama's immigration orders. It is now unclear what Congress' next steps are ahead of a midnight deadline to avoid a partial government shutdown. - Stephanie

US immigration reform debate

Editor's note: Both the U.S. House and Senate have begun work on bills to fund the Department of Homeland Security before a midnight deadline to avert a partial shutdown. The House is considering a three-week continuing resolution, and it is not clear how many Democrats support the plan. The Senate is considering a "clean" funding bill for the agency, which wouldn't include previous provisions that would derail President Obama's immigration action. However, the Senate is expected to consider a Republican bill to defund Obama's executive order later in the day. - Stephanie

Editor's note: U.S. Congress needs to pass a funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security by the end of Friday to avoid a shutdown of the agency. A previous funding bill failed in the Senate because it included provisions to defund President Obama's immigration executive order, prompting a filibuster by Democrats. Thursday night, the Senate adjourned with votes on a clean DHS spending bill set for 10 a.m. ET Friday. The House may consider a three-week stopgap funding bill to avoid a partial shutdown, buying more time for House Republicans who want to derail Obama's immigration action. It is not clear if House Speaker John Boehner will try to pass the Senate's clean bill or reattach the immigration amendments, USA TODAY reports. - Stephanie
