A budget battle is still waging in Congress. This time, it's President Barack Obama's immigration order that could led to a government shutdown.

That gives Congress time to revisit the President's immigration policy when Republicans take over the Senate next year. Tom Shoop, editor-in-chief of Government Executive magazine, tells In Depth with Francis Rose why this situation isn't anything new.
