Download Audio

Congress’s deadline to fund the Department of Homeland Security is tonight at midnight. It appears House Republicans may have a plan to keep DHS open tonight though, and that’s asking for more time to figure it out through a continuing resolution, or CR.

Ron Elving, NPR’s senior Washington editor and correspondent, speaks with Here & Now's Robin Young about what the House is proposing and whether the Senate may give into the plan, despite having its own separate bill. He also discusses where the debate is headed in Congress on President Obama’s executive actions on immigration.
