Senate Passes Bill To Fund DHS Without Immigration Restrictions

AP

The Republican-led Senate voted 68-31 on Friday to pass legislation that funds the Department of Homeland Security through September.

The bill does not impose any restrictions on President Barack Obama’s immigration policies, an issue that has held up funding.

DHS appropriations expire on Friday at midnight.
