Obama: I'll act on my own on immigration

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says he's done waiting for House Republicans to act on immigration. He says he now plans to act on his own.
    
Obama announced his intention Monday to take executive action.
    
Obama says there are enough Republicans and Democrats in the House to pass an immigration bill today, and says he would sign it.
    
But Obama says he's waited for more than a year to give House Speaker John Boehner (BAY'-nur) space to act. He says Boehner informed him last week that the House won't vote on immigration this year.
    
Obama says the thousands of unaccompanied children showing up on the border underscore the need to drop the politics and act on immigration.
