McConnell on DHS Funding: ‘Up to the House’ to Act

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell put the onus of crafting spending legislation for the Department of Homeland Security back on the House of Representatives Tuesday, saying the Senate is “stuck” on a House-passed bill.

“I think it’s clearly stuck in the Senate,” McConnell said, referring to the House-passed legislation funding DHS but restricting President Barack Obama’s immigration executive orders. “We can’t get on it, we can’t offer amendments to it, and the next step is obviously up to the House.”
