The showdown between Democrats and Republicans over Homeland Security is elected to intensify this week as both sides dig in for a fight.

The Washington Times reports [2]that GOP House Speaker John Boehner said Sunday that he’s preparing for a fight to defund President Obama’s immigration actions.

“Remember what’s causing this, it’s the president of the United States overreaching and it’s not just on immigration,” Mr. Boehner [3] said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

Boehner wasn’t so successful last week when Republicans broke ranks to pass a temporary funding bill to avoid a shutdown.

“We do have some members who disagree from time to time over the tactics that we decide to employ,” Mr. Boehner [3] said. “But remember that Republicans are united in this idea that the president has far exceeded his constitutional authority and we all want to do things to stop the president from his illicit activity.”
