This morning in Boehner’s press conference, he was asked if Republicans will take the blame for perpetuating the illegal immigration problem if they don’t approve the president’s request for billions in additional funding. His response was forceful:
REPORTER: Do you agree with Senator Lindsey Graham who said yesterday if Republicans do not go ahead and approve this funding you’re going to get blamed for perpetuating the problem? Do you think you have to approve this funding?
BOEHNER: Listen, this is a problem of the presidents own making. He’s been president for five and a half years. When is he going to take responsibility for something?
