A DHS shutdown will start in a few days unless congress OKs funding. Right now democrats are filibustering the bill that would both fund DHS and end executive amnesty. Republicans have the votes to end the filibuster rule and then ratify that bill. The bill would then go to obama and if he vetoes it, the DHS shutdown is his fault . The repubs are in charge here if they will just take charge.

Mcconnell is proposing a bill to fund the DHS and a separate bill to defund amnesty.!!! Obozo will sign the first and veto the second and repubs don't have the votes to override the veto. Mcconnell is a traitor to his country and his party.

I wish Obama would stop the fucking amnesty and throw his support behind infrastructure, science and r&d investment. Something that would help this country instead of fucking it.
He doesn't care about helping the country - in fact a prosperous america is bad for democrats. He wants more people on welfare and bringing in all these illiterate illegals is a way to do that.

This shouldn't even be an issue. Send obie the damn DHS funding without amnesty and let the dems stop it. Then just hit the airwaves and claim correctly the dems care more about illegals than your safety.

The senate will likely cave but I don't think the house will. They understand if they cave now it will set the tone for the next two years.

Yes they will. They know already that this is a losing battle but the conservative base demands a fight. It's no big deal to them, they get as much political mileage out of playing victim to mean old Obama as they would out of a win.

Losing battle???? The gop controls both houses of congress and there are many ways they can stop amnesty if they just will.

You don't understand how laws are passed. They can't send the bill to obama until the senate passes it and the senate dems won't let it come up for a vote.

If it's a clean bill they will. Otherwise, nope.

Time for Republicans to pull a Harry Reid and just shut the Democrats down. Then pass the bill and let Obama wear the shutdown because it will be his very own little pen that's pulling the plug.

Wake up Republicans. It's time for hardball.

Is security, particuarly border security a top national priority? Isn't supporting ICE and other immigration services the best way to secure our borders?

Or is DHS nothing more than a political football? Is this responsible, thoughtful leadership, or irresponsible grandstanding?

You know that a DHS shutdown can only happen through House initiatives like this clumsy chunk of a waste of time. And you admitted the pure politics of the affair when you though Obama might take the flak over a DHS shutdown.

Is our national security that trivial to the Rabid Right?

I do understand how that works. All the congress has to do is send a bill to the senate with all DHS provisions paid for without funding for the illegals. Then let the senate democrats block it. And when they do point at the malls being threatened and how the dems won't fund it because they want illegals to get amnesty and see where that goes. You will get that budget passed in a day if you aren't a pussy trying to appease a bunch of dem assholes.

All they have to do is stand on their principles and the fucking deems have no choice but to cave. DHS funding is now out there for dems to fuck up. Keep the pressure on them. Fund the DHS for American safety or refuse that funding in favor of illegals getting provisions.

I'd play that game all day long on the air waves.

No one is going to stand in the way a clean bill, dummy. Security is another third-rail of politics.
