    DHS isn't going to shut down no matter what happens. The USCIS is funded through user fees, not appropriations. The rest of DHS pretty much qualifies for an exemption from shutdown under the "emergency services" exceptions. So, CBP, TSA, ICE, and other DHS agencies will continue to operate. The only parts that will stop working are the nonessential administrative components.

    Bottom line: No matter what happens it will be business as usual.

    The Republican is broken within itself on what to do on immigration. At least the Democrats are united on their stand.

    That is absolutely true. It is very unfortunate that the "Land of Immigrants" has the most outdated immigration policies because neither party is interested in solving the problem but scoring political points.

    That is because this system has also been abused by many.

    That's what McCain quoted right? The Dems are united and have the President's back.

    I don't know who came up with it, but it is an old saying.

    For the past six years I've been telling my Republican friends that they are fools if they thought they could pursue a scorched earth legislative policy and not expect the Democrats to do the same thing to them when they took over. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, they can't seem to understand why they can't pass anything.

    As a great philosopher once said, payback is a bitch.

    My female black Lab's name is Payback. When people ask me why I named my dog Payback, I tell them that she's not a dog, Payback is a bitch.

    More bad news for Congressional Republicans who want to let DHS shut down:

    http://www.nbcnews.com/news/latino/...ity-ending-obamas-immigration-actions-n305101

    Poll: Americans Put Lower Priority on Ending Obama's Immigration Actions

    According to the poll, 85 percent of Democrats, 73 percent of independents and 62 percent of Republicans say immigration reform legislation should be the higher priority for the GOP, above overturning Obama's immigration executive actions. Overall, close to three fourths of Americans say the same.

    what was the percentage of Americans who were supporting Gun Control regulation? :)

    I know it's cynical but sometimes I think corporations lobby for status quo. Maybe they want illegal immigrants to stay in shadow and be exploited.

    US Greedy Corporations remind me of Lavernia from the show Malcolm in the Middle
