Blames Obama for immigration

12 Jul, 2015

On Face the Nation, Boehner blames President Obama for Congress’ failure to reform immigration laws.

He’s stirred up the American people in such a way that it would almost be impossible to do immigration reform, given the environment that we’re dealing with. I want to do immigration reform and the president knows it. I asked the president about a year ago, gave him some ideas about things that should happen if he wanted to do immigration reform, and some things that he shouldn’t do. Well, the president didn’t take my advice. And he doubled down on the executive orders that, frankly, far exceeded his authority, and the courts have got him stopped. He’s really poisoned the well.
