After President Obama’s televised speech Tuesday afternoon championing immigration reform, a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) warned him not to tilt too far leftward.

“There are a lot of ideas about how best to fix our broken immigration system,” Boehner aide Brendan Buck said in an email. “Any solution should be a bipartisan one, and we hope the President is careful not to drag the debate to the left and ultimately disrupt the difficult work that is ahead in the House and Senate.”
