Earlier on Wednesday, Boehner said House GOP leaders "have no intention ever of going to conference on the Senate bill." He added, "I want us to deal with this issue but I want to deal with it in a common sense step by step way."

Just days after the 2012 election, Boehner told ABC News of immigration: "This issue has been around far too long, and while I believe it’s important for us to secure our borders and to enforce our laws, I think a comprehensive approach is long overdue, and I’m confident that the president, myself, others, can find the common ground to take care of this issue once and for all."
