SHARE Boehner has stern warning for Obama and his immigration plan

WASHINGTON — Speaker John Boehner says the Republican-controlled Congress will act to approve the Keystone XL pipeline, make changes in the health care law and encourage businesses to hire more veterans. And also issued a warning about immigration.

The Ohio Republican made his remarks at the opening of his first postelection news conference in the Capitol complex.

He also cautioned President Barack Obama not to act unilaterally to change the immigration system, saying it would poison the well in terms of trying to pass legislation over the next two years on the subject.

“I’ve made clear to the president that if he acts unilaterally on his own outside of his authority, he will poison the well and there will be no chance for immigration reform moving in this Congress,” Boehner said.

He also said Obama will “burn himself if he continues to go down this path.”

Boehner also said the House will vote to repeal the health care law but added he isn’t certain that can clear the Senate despite its new Republican majority.

Boehner is in line for a third term as House speaker.
