At a joint news conference Thursday with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid guaranteed Senate Democrats would not block consideration of legislation sponsored by Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, defunding President Barack Obama’s immigration executive orders. “When we finish fully funding Homeland Security, if the Republicans want to go to immigration, any part thereof, we’ll go to them,” Reid said. “They won’t need a motion to proceed, we’ll just do it.”
