Kinzinger Disagrees With Republican Party

Congressman Adam Kinzinger says he disagrees with his party's attempt to hold Homeland Security funding in limbo to try to block President Obama's order on immigration.

That fight is ongoing even after a judge blocked the president's order which would have helped up to 5 million undocumented immigrants avoid deportation. Kinzinger says, linking immigration to homeland security funding might not be the best way to go, but Congressional Republicans were left with few options.

Kinzinger says the President overstepped in bounds in isuing the order that would give 5 million illegal immigrants - a work permit and temporary relief from deportation.

Even if homeland security funding is stripped, D-H-S employees would still go to work as 'essential employees' - they just wouldn't get paid.
