The U.S. House of Representatives has passed a bill that will fund the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through September 30, ending a weeks-long political standoff amid attempts by Republicans to use the bill to block President Barack Obama's actions on immigration reform.

The bill was approved in a 251-162 vote, with all 177 voting Democrats and 74 Republicans voting in favor. A total of 162 Republicans voted against the bill. Twenty members did not vote, including nine Republicans and 11 Democrats.
