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.

The president announced his intention Monday to take executive action.

President Obama says there are enough Republicans and Democrats in the House to pass an immigration bill today, and says he would sign it.

But the president says he's waited for more than a year to give House Speaker John Boehner space to act. He says Boehner informed him last week that the House won't vote on immigration this year.

President Obama says the thousands of unaccompanied children showing up on the border underscore the need to drop the politics and act on immigration.
