Fwd: Budget

But not everyone on the right was happy with the current deal either. Some House Republicans felt that Mr. Boehner did not go far enough in fighting Mr. Obama over his executive action last month to defer the deportation of as many as five million illegal immigrants. The spending deal would fund the Department of Homeland Security — the primary agency tasked with carrying out the president's immigration policy — only through February, at which point Republicans will control both chambers of Congress, with the votes to try to curtail Mr. Obama's action.

But some conservatives wanted to immediately defund the Homeland Security agency, despite the risk of a partial government shutdown.
