Boehner: Obama Can't Be Trusted To Enforce Immigration Bill
(Washington, DC) -- Republican House Speaker John Boehner says the American people do not trust President Obama to enforce or implement an immigration reform bill.
Boehner insisted Republicans are committed to finding a way forward on immigration. The Senate passed a comprehensive, bipartisan immigration bill last year but it is stalled in the Republican-led House. Boehner recently mocked his Republican colleagues, saying they think immigration reform is "too hard." Pressed about that during a Capitol news briefing, Boehner said he was just teasing.
