On Saturday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill that would require the Department of Homeland Security to shut down immediately if it sees that an emergency has been declared.
If that’s not enough, the House also passed a companion bill that requires DHS to begin a shutdown immediately if there is an imminent threat to the nation’s security.
The bill has not yet been brought up for a vote in the Senate, but it’s already been rejected by Democratic senators.
The bill would require DHS to shutdown immediately if an emergency exists.
If the DHS is not able to perform the essential functions required of it within 45 days of the proclamation of an emergency, then the DHS will be prohibited from conducting any activities for 90 days, unless Congress decides otherwise, according to the bill.
The bill passed the House with bipartisan support, and the Senate passed the measure last week.
It’s an ominous sign for the future of the government, as it would make DHS the ultimate authority in how and when to shut the country down.
That would essentially mean DHS could not suspend the government for up to 45 days, as long as there was an emergency declaration, as happened during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
The shutdown and the emergency declaration have been on the agenda since Congress passed a spending bill in August, when it passed the Emergency Deficit Control Act.
But there has been a lull in the discussions over the shutdown since that time.
The last time there was a shutdown was in 2011, when Congress temporarily shut down government operations in response to the global financial crisis.
And there have been no attempts since then to shut government down in response for the 2018 midterms.
A shutdown is a potential disaster for both the government shutdown and Trump’s agenda.
Since Trump’s inauguration, the White House has been actively working to defund the Affordable Care Act and other parts of the country’s health care system.
The administration has threatened to cut off funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which is meant to help people who can’t afford insurance through their employer.
Trump also has been targeting Planned Parenthood and its affiliates.
The House bill would also prohibit the use of federal funds for abortions and require that federal funds be used only to provide healthcare to pregnant women and their unborn children.
The legislation would also require that states that use federal funds to cover abortion be able to require providers to meet standards for surgical safety, as well as provide Medicaid funds to women seeking abortions, a requirement that Republicans oppose.
While Trump’s policies are not currently prohibited, it’s unclear what other restrictions would be imposed on him.
A shutdown would be a significant blow to the Trump agenda.
Republicans are currently on track to win control of both the House and Senate in November.
