On Tuesday, March 3rd, the House of Representatives passed a bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through to the end of the fiscal year (September 30, 2015)! It was a clear bill sent over from the Senate and had no attachments targeted at President Obama’s executive actions on immigration. The vote was 257-167 and now the bill goes to President Barack Obama for his signature, which he has said he would sign. Most House Republicans voted against the bill. The winning vote was comprised of just 75 Republicans and 182 Democrats.
