The speaker argued Friday that Obama's actions will make it more challenging for lawmakers to trust the president for any future cooperation.
"You can't ask the elected representatives of the people to trust you to enforce the law if you're constantly demonstrating that you can't be trusted to enforce the law," Boehner said.
In addition to decrying the process by which Obama enacted these reforms—executive action as opposed to bipartisan legislation—the speaker also questioned the wisdom of the reforms' content.
The president argued that his efforts to bolster border security will mean less undocumented immigration, despite the temporary reprieve from deportation he offered almost 5 million immigrants, but Boehner disagreed.
"The action by the president yesterday will only encourage more people to come here illegally, putting their lives at risk," Boehner said.
He added that the executive action also "punishes those who have obeyed the law and waited their turn."
Boehner said he is working with Republicans to formulate a response to Obama's actions, but promised that "the House will in fact act."
