Funding to combat illegal immigration may be gone in less than a month, warned Homeland Security Director Jeh Johnson.

Johnson is urging lawmakers to approve an emergency spending bill.

At the current rate, Johnson said funds for the U.S. Immigration Customs would dry up in the mid-August. Cash for Border Protection would be gone by mid-September.

Authorities are hoping the U.S. House can reach a compromise on the bill before the month-long August recess.

President Obama is asking for $3.7 billion in emergency spending.
