House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio encounters a student tour group outside his office on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, March 3, 2015, as the House votes on funding for the Homeland Security Department without provisions attached to counter President Barack Obama's executive actions on immigration. Despite holding the majority in the Senate and the House, Republicans were unable to overcome united opposition from Senate Democrats to the GOP strategy of trying to overturn Obama's immigration plan by linking them to funding for Homeland. They also suffered embarrassing internal divisions that left the country within hours of a partial agency shutdown last week. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu waves as he speaks before a joint meeting of Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, March 3, 2015. Since Republicans took control of Congress two months ago, an elaborate tug of war has broken out between GOP lawmakers and Obama over who calls the shots on major issues for the next two years. In the course of a few hours Tuesday, House Republicans caved to Obama on Homeland Security funding and immigration. Yet they also antagonized him by giving Israel's prime minister a perch in Congress to rail against nuclear talks with Iran. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)
