Lest there be any lingering doubt, House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) once again told his colleagues Wednesday morning at their weekly closed-door meeting that no matter what the Senate does on immigration reform, the House will act on its own.

"We'll do our own bill, through regular order and it'll be a bill that reflects the will of our majority and the people we represent," Boehner said, according to GOP aides in the room.

During his comments at the weekly meeting of House Republicans, Boehner reminded his colleagues that he, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) had issued a joint statement in May that said "that the House is not going to just take up and vote on whatever the Senate passes," the aides said.
