Homeland Security bill faces key vote on Tuesday
    Washington -- In the intensifying congressional standoff over funding for the Department of Homeland Security, Senate Democrats are expected to block Republicans from taking up a spending bill for the agency when it comes up for a key vote on Tuesday, according to multiple senior Democratic aides involved in the issue.
    The move would jam Republicans leaders who are anxious to fund the agency but who also need to satisfy the demands of a large bloc of House Republicans who want the bill ban the department from carrying out President Barack Obama's recent immigration executive orders, which they vehemently oppose.
    But Democrats oppose adding what they call "poison pill' amendments to the $40 billion funding bill. With the vote on Tuesday, they want to demonstrate to Republicans, who have 54 seats in the Senate, the bill can't get the 60 votes it would need to pass with the amendments attached.

Will Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas follow California?
California was ceded to Mexico by cowardly Republicans. It would seem that we now need some brave Democrats to save the rest of the Southwest from Mexican hegemony. The Heritage Foundation is working hard to convince certain Democrat Senators to vote for America. -- They deserve your support.
