Sen. Durbin: Obama Will 'Borrow the Power' to Solve Immigration

By Eric Scheiner | June 30, 2014 | 11:52am EDT

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) says President Barack Obama, “will borrow the power that is needed to solve the problems of immigration.”

Durbin made the comments at a press briefing on immigration last Thursday urging House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to bring an immigration bill onto the floor for a vote.

"I don't know how much more time he thinks he needs, but I hope that Speaker Boehner will speak up today," Durbin said. "And if he does not, the president will borrow the power that is needed to solve the problems of immigration and he shouldn’t be sued as a result of it."

Last week, Boehner announced a planned lawsuit that accuses President Obama of failing to carry out the laws passed by Congress and habitually overstepping his authority.
