Update:  The U.S. House of Representatives passed a one-week funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security late Friday night.  President Obama signed the measure just before midnight.

(Earlier Story)

:  It's back to the drawing board as a short-term bill funding the Department of Homeland Security has fallen short in the House. DHS funding is set to expire at midnight, Eastern time.

The three-week funding bill failed on a vote of 203-224. DHS funding has been stuck in a dispute over immigration.

House Republicans have insisted on linking DHS funding to an attempted repeal of President Obama's executive actions on immigration.

However, Senate Democrats have blocked any legislation which contains a rollback of Obama's executive actions.

The Senate passed a bill earlier which fully funds DHS through September, the end of the fiscal year.   (Metro Networks Inc.)
