House GOP leaders on Tuesday acknowledged the need to pass immigration reform, but blamed a lack of trust in President Obama as to why it hasn't happened yet.

"The biggest impediment we have moving immigration reform is that the American people don't trust the President to enforce of implement the law that we may or may not pass," says Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., believes it's an entirely different issue.

"Eleven hundred people deported each day. One person standing in the way," says Pelosi. "The Speaker of the House and his caucus."

The Senate passed a comprehensive immigration reform bill last June, but the bill has yet to make it the the House floor for a vote. Many are wondering if it'll get done before the August Congressional recess.
