House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is pressing the Senate to pass the House-passed Department of Homeland Security bill that defunds executive action.

At his Tuesday morning news conference, the Ohio Republican highlighted Senate Democrats who have been critical of President Obama’s executive actions and called on them to follow through.

“There’s a whole host of Democrats who issued press releases criticizing the president’s executive overreach,” Boehner told reporters. “[Claire] McCaskill (D-MO), [Joe] Donnelly (D-IN), others. Was it all talk?”

The Senate is expected to hold its first vote on the House-passed Department of Homeland Security bill Tuesday. However, Senate Democrats have said they will work to block the bill.

Boehner stressed that the House has done its work to defund executive amnesty and now it is time for the Senate to act.
