MADISON TOWNSHIP, Ohio, April 25 (UPI) -- House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, mocked his Republican colleagues on immigration reform at an event on Thursday in his home district.

He was speaking on the prospects of Congress passing immigration reform and said he didn't believe that it had a good chance at making it through the House. He said he believed that immigration reform should come to the floor this year but summed up his fellow Republicans response in one animated sentence.

"Oohh don't make me do this! Oh this is too hard!" he cried as he impersonates the GOP quivering.

Although the Senate passed an immigration reform bill in June, the House has not brought a bill on the matter to a vote. Republicans say they prefer a piecemeal approach but no movement has been made on that either. Boehner's frustration with the inaction of his party is apparent in this video.
