President Obamas new national monument in New Mexico, which he announced Wednesday, thrilled environmentalists, who said it preserves nearly 500,000 acres of spectacular and pristine lands, but it could also doom his hopes of getting Congress to pass an immigration bill this year.
House Speaker John A. Boehner said the presidents unilateral move is exactly the type of action the GOP has been warning against, adding it shows the president isnt serious about enforcing border security.
Mr. Boehner has repeatedly said Republicans are reluctant to trust that the president will take seriously border security and immigration enforcement as part of a comprehensive deal that also would include the path to citizenship that Democrats prize.

Somehow the release of 36000 hardened illegal criminals into the streets didn’t make Bonehead rethink amnesty?
Only Mike Lee and Rob Bishop have mentioned the environmental laws force the Border Patrol them to switch from truck to horseback.
The illegals trash the area and cut down endangered cactus and put them across the road.
Kill IR now, Boehner!
Whatever excuse you need, Boehner, do the right thing.
And remember to ask yourself: Are you a little baby boy, or are you a big strong man?
how many people are getting tired of seeing this called “immigration” ?
its not immigration...its a damned criminal INVASION.
how about lets call it what it really is ?
I call them foreign criminal invaders
This is about the 3,205th time Bonehead has said “_____ by Obama could kill immigration reform” only to have him press on with immigration reform (AMNESTY).
Can’t we just get rid of this orange-faced buffoon?
I think there's only one way that things'll turn around.
That is yet another under reported story of great importance in 2014. Ask around, I bet less than 15% of so called news watchers are aware that over 36K illegal alien criminals were set free to roam in the U,S,. Don’t waste your breath telling Darryl Isa about it who will only bloviate on camera or John Boehner who will only weep for this disintegrating nation, take a calming pill with a neat bourbon chaser, then take another catnap.
Gee, I wonder what Bonehead's first clue was?
The founding fathers would have gone that root years ago.
Wake up folks - they are going full bore on Agenda 21 and the take over of land all across the country - have you not seen the map? People will be herded into ‘Sustainable Communities “ and confined in small areas, with movement restricted - better bone up folks.
There are many videos on YouTube that, if you haven’t studied Agenda 21 - you should. Not in your state/town? Better find out what the watchwords are - because it IS
Hey John Boy - until you say that enforcement comes first and after a few years “reform” can be discussed, you lack ANY credibility and can not be trust AT ALL. Got it Punk?
John Bonener is twisted up in knots on the matter of trust, but not the bigger matter of Obama’s kingship.
Preserves it for what?
I didn't realize a 250-year old nation this size had a problem with not enough "spectacular and pristine lands" - go figure.
At this point anything that kills amnesty is OK with me. Once they vote to legalize all these people there will be no getting rid of them. Ever.
If it is so spectacular and pristine, why wasn’t it made a national monument decades ago? Teddy Roosevelt let the country down.
