WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Wednesday that it was "irresponsible for Republicans in Congress" to play politics with funding for the Department of Homeland Security that is slated to expire at the end of the month unless a compromise is reached.

"What's clear now is they have painted themselves into a corner," White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters.
