Republicans in Congress Reach Impasse on Funding for Homeland Security

Homeland Security is within two months of running out of money, and Republican Congressional leaders acknowledge they don’t have the votes for their budget plan for the department.

The New York Times reports that Republicans have reached an impasse after failing three times to pass a bill to finance Homeland Security.

“I think it’s clearly stuck in the Senate,” said Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader. “We can’t get on it, we can’t offer amendments to it. And the next step is obviously up to the House.”

 

The budget impasse follows attempts by the GOP to prevent President Obama from carrying out his immigration policies.

GOP leaders said the Republican have not started working on an alternative.
