House Speaker John Boehner and House Republican inaction on immigration reform has been an invitation for President Obama to take executive action on the matter, Democrats argued Thursday.
Since the Speaker has not brought immigration reform to the floor, he invites, clearly, the actions of the executive branch to try to do that which the Congress seems to be incapable of doing, New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez argued at a gathering of House and Senate Democrats marking the year anniversary of the passage of the Senate immigration reform bill.
Boehner and House Republicans have balked at the idea of immigration reform this year, saying they do not trust Obama to enforce any law they pass.
According to the Democratic lawmakers and the Obama administration, however, there is one month left for the House to take action on immigration reform.
A year has gone by. I dont know how much more time he thinks he needs. But I hope that Speaker Boehner will speak up today, and if he does not, the President will borrow the power that is needed to solve the problems of immigration and he shouldn't be sued as a result of it, Illinois Sen.

If Boehner and the Republicans are smart, they’ll force the boy’s hand and make him do it. The commie ‘RATS will never see the inside of the White Hut again.
“You must give in to my every whim and allow me to rule as a dictator. If you refuse, I shall have no other choice than to rule as a dictator.”
Yes let Obama do it. It won’t be law and they won’t be legally in the country.
The rule of law is optional with this White Hut. Unless and until congress reasserts it’s authority of the purse, I wouldn’t do a damned thing.
Our southern border is being invaded and the regime prohibits congress from taking pictures or talking to the illegal aliens, and they won’t even provide head counts or where the invaders are being shipped. It’s all out tyranny.
Uh, dimwits? From your policy "work", it's obvious you haven't read the Constitution, so I shouldn't be too hard on you, but The Won's blatherings and pen scratchings are not actually the law of the land, Paul Begala notwithstanding.
Yes, if the house doesn’t pass an amnesty bill, the prez will usurp their power and grant amnesty himself.
There can only be one outcome of this illegal alien invasion and it isn’t going to be pretty. The GOP needs to insure that Barry and the ‘RATS get ALL of the credit for what is going to happen. This is why we are hearing all of these ‘RAT threats like this. They are afraid to grant amnesty to the alien invaders. They know it’s going to get ugly.
He’s not enforcing the laws that are on the books now.
It getting ugly is good for the left, the lying propaganda media is on their side.
I guess women are raped, too, by inviting it when they show too much leg or arm or whatever else ...
That’s Democrat thinking for you.
Boehner is a jellyfish its true but the democrats can’t blame their child trafficking on him.
F**k you, Dims.
Thats not how it works, A-holes.
The Capital Wasteland.

This is the GOP’s ace in the hole. Make the Kenyan do it!
Basically, that’s exactly what this freak is saying.
