H.J.Res. 1: Making further continuing appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security for fiscal year 2019, and for other purposes.

Jan 3, 2019 at 9:34 p.m. ET. On Passage of the Bill in the House.

This was the vote on the House Democrats' continuing resolution to reopen the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in the midst of the government shutdown beginning on December 22, 2018. The resolution does not include $5.6 billion in funding for a southern border wall, and as such the President has stated that he will not sign it, adding that he would be willing to continue the shutdown for months or years.

The resolution would fund DHS until February 8, which House Democrats argue would give time to come to an agreement about the border wall without continuing the shutdown. House Democrats issued a press release on passage of the resolution.

A continuing resolution must be passed in both chambers and signed by the President to be enacted into law.

This vote was related to a resolution introduced by Rep. Nita Lowey [D-NY17] on January 3, 2019, H.J.Res. 1: Making further continuing appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security for fiscal year 2019, and for other purposes..
