CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE: The thing is, this is all a ruse, this alarmism, this panic about funding..... It's all a game. This country doesn't really need a Department of Homeland Security. http://coralvillecourier.typepad.com/mikes_politics/2015/02/politicians-playing-games-with-dept-of-homeland-security-bill.html
The White House said Friday that President Obama will sign into law a short-term funding bill to avoid a midnight shutdown of the Homeland Security Department, a pledge that all but assures the funding fight over his deportation amnesty will last at least three more weeks.
“The truth is, if the president is faced with the choice between the short-term extension and shutting down the Department of Homeland Security, he will sign the short-term extension,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said at the daily press briefing.
The president’s willingness to accept the temporary funding being pushed by House Republicans likely will send the immigrate fight into overtime.
