The Senate just failed to pass a bill to fund Department of Homeland Security by forcing President Obama to undo his executive actions to protect unauthorized immigrants from deportation. One Republican Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) noted with Democrats against the bill. Congress and the President need to agree on a plan to fund DHS sometime before February 27th, when its current funding runs out. If they can't agree on a funding Bill, DHS will be in a technical shutdown - but around 85 percent of the Department will keep coming to work as "essential" government workers or employees of Fee-Funded Agencies.
