Boehner: Border crisis is "president's own making"

House Speaker John Boehner is continuing his sharp criticism of the president on the issue of immigration.

"This is a problem of the president's own making," Boehner said. "He's been president for five and a half years. When is he going to take responsibility for something?"

The president is fighting back slamming House Republicans for not taking up a bill on immigration reform.

"The House Republicans, they haven’t even called the bill," Obama said. 'They won’t even take a vote on the bill. They don’t have enough energy or organization or I don’t know what to just even vote no on the bill. And then they’re made at me for trying to do some things to make the immigration system work better. So it doesn’t make sense."

Bowe Bergdahl pictured smiling with Taliban leader

A new picture of Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl during his captivity posing with a Taliban leader has surfaced. The undated photo was posted on a pro-Taliban Twitter account.

Bergdahl is seen smiling with a top leader from the Haqqani network who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in August of 2012. CNN cannot confirm the context of the photo or whether his smile was natural or coerced.

After five years of captivity, Bergdahl returned to the U.S. nearly a month ago. Military sources tell CNN his reintegration process is almost complete.

House Republicans to sue Obama over employer mandate in Obamacare

(CNN) - House Republicans are going forward with plans to sue President Barack Obama and will base their legal case on the sweeping health care law he championed and they despise.

Speaker John Boehner said the suit will follow the argument Obama violated the Constitution by circumventing Congress and changing the law's employer mandate on his own.

"In 2013, the President changed the health care law without a vote of Congress, effectively creating his own law by literally waiving the employer mandate and the penalties for failing to comply with it," Boehner said in a statement.

"That's not the way our system of government was designed to work. No president should have the power to make laws on his or her own," he added.

The Republican-led House is expected to vote on a resolution authorizing legal action against the President at month's end.

The White House expressed disappointment in a statement, saying Boehner and Republicans are wasting time, taxpayer resources on a "political stunt."
