The fate of Homeland Security’s budget and President Obama’s immigration plan is in the hands of the U.S. Senate on the final day before money runs out today.

The New York Times reports that the Senate is expected to vote today on a measure that would providing funding for the remainder of the fiscal year.

But House Republicans appear poised to reject the measure in what would create a partial shutdown of the department at a time when the country is worried about the spread of terrorism. The House may consider a shorter-term funding bill.

House Republicans are trying to stop financing for Obama’s immigration plan.

“As a governing party, we’ve got to fund D.H.S. and say to the House, ‘Here’s a straw so you can suck it up,’ ” said Senator Mark S. Kirk, Republican of Illinois. “This battle should be the end of the strategy of attaching whatever you’re upset at the president to a vital piece of government.”
