Dept. of Homeland Security shutdown looms, would idle 15% of workforce…(Why Not All!!)

In a move that could have ramifications for domestic anti-terrorism efforts, US House Speaker John Boehner said he would let funding for the Department of Homeland Security lapse on Feb. 27 in order to reverse Obama’s immigration reform actions.

House Republicans have passed a Homeland Security appropriations bill, but it is contingent upon defunding Obama’s 2012 and 2014 executive orders that negated the threat of deportation for an estimated five million undocumented immigrants seeking refuge in the United States.

In the Senate, Democrats have blocked the House funding bill three times, calling for “clean” DHS-funding legislation that would maintain Obama’s immigration orders. Obama, meanwhile, has threatened to veto the House measure.

“Senate Democrats are the ones standing in the way,” Speaker Boehner told Fox News on Sunday. “They’re the ones jeopardizing funding.”

Would he let the department’s funding expire? “Certainly,” Boehner answered. “The House has acted. We’ve done our job.”

    Oh gee – e-verify would be shutdown! It don’t work anyway, at least in the case of that person in the White House!
    I think they should allow it! Let the DHS employees find out what it is like to have no income for a while. I can’t see where it would hurt the nation as a whole, an might even be an improvement. But, the again, that would probably be the time when they would pull another false flag to scare everyone. “See what happens when you don’t give us our protection money!”
