House Speaker John Boehner said Thursday "all options are on the table" to stop President Barack Obama from acting alone on immigration policy. Boehner gave that reply when asked if he would include language limiting Obama from acting in a bill to fund the government past Dec. 11. Obama has said he plans to act before the end of the year. Earlier Thursday, the New York Times reported Obama will announce as soon as next week an overhaul of the immigration-enforcement system. It would protect up to five million undocumented immigrants from deportation and provide many of them with work permits, the Times said.
