House Speaker John Boehner claims that next year Republicans will take the fight over executive amnesty to President Obama.
“We’ve also made clear that early on we’ll make a direct challenge to the president’s unilateral actions on immigration,” the Ohio Republican told reporters Thursday in arguing the case for the House’s must-pass government spending bill. “You can expect that challenge to the president to include real action on border security.”
He noted that the House is already working on the matter, and will pick it back up in January. “We’ll take this fight to the president on the strongest possible ground — with new majorities that the American people elected,” he said.
