The Department of Homeland Security could run out of money by this Friday, Feb. 27, if the House and the Senate don't vote for a funding extension before then.

The Senate has made noises like it has reached a deal; Democrats say they'll vote for a Republican plan to vote separately on the Homeland Security funding and the president's executive actions on immigration.

The Republican-controlled House has already passed a bill tying the two together. So will the House compromise and vote on a bill that matches up with the Senate?

Republican Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio, who is the leader of the newly-formed House Freedom Caucus, says the president's immigration actions are unconstitutional and that he wants to vote on a bill tying the two issues together.
