After sending his $4 trillion budget to Congress, President Obama focuses his attention on a department caught up in the immigration debate.

FOX News Radio's Jon Decker reports from the White House:

In a speech at the Department of Homeland Security, the President gave an overview of his $4 trillion budget plan and also had a message for Republicans -- who are threatening to curtail DHS funding because of opposition to the President's executive order on immigration reform last year.

(Obama) "If Republicans let Homeland Security funding expire, it is the end to any new initiatives in the event that a new threat emerges."

DHS runs out of funding on February 27th. The White House has said the President will not change his position on immigration to broker a compromise on funding the Department.
