The House passed a bill today to push back against Barack Obama’s unlawful actions on illegal immigration, and Speaker John Boehner made a beautiful and concise statement explaining what this is about: reigning in a president who has violated, and continues to violate, his oath of office. <Yahoo News, link>
This executive overreach is an affront to the rule of law and to the Constitution itself. The people made clear that they wanted more accountability from this president, and by our votes here today we will heed their will and we will keep our oath to protect and defend the Constitution.
House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, January 14, 2015.
