ABSTRACT
The author argues that U.S. President Barack Obama is acting on immigration reform as a result of the inaction of U.S. House Speaker John Boehner, who refused to bring the matter to the House floor despite the Senate's passage of a bipartisan comprehensive immigration bill on June 27, 2013. Other topics include undocumented immigrants, amnesty, and border security issues which Republicans claim still need to be addressed.
