TOP DEM: Obama will 'borrow the power' to solve crisis on border...

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.
