Immigration reform won’t happen until next year, House Speaker John Boehner said Tuesday on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show.

An upcoming election coupled with the concerns of Senate Democrats may cause President Obama to push back a possible executive order on immigration to next year, something Boehner is on board with.

Boehner told Hewitt he hopes Obama continues to “follow the law” and take necessary steps to secure the border.

Doing so “would create an environment where you could do immigration reform in a responsible way next year,” Boehner said.

A February poll by Gallup showed that Americans considered it equally important for the government to secure the borders as well as resolve the status of the roughly 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. already.
