Although Congressional lawmakers are on vacation, Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, penned an opinion editorial titled, "Do Your Job, Mr. President."

Rep. Boehner shared a quote that "sums up exactly" how President Barack Obama has engaged in immigration and tax reform. The H.L. Mencken quote read, "For every complex problem, there is a solution that is simple, neat and wrong."

According to the House Speaker, the top priority for the American people is improving the economy and creating jobs in the private sector. He noted the House passed jobs legislation, but it is currently sitting in the U.S. Senate.

In regards to the immigration situation, Boehner wrote, "We face a terrible humanitarian crisis on our southern border."

Boehner placed part of the blame on a 2008 law that gives "more legal protections" to undocumented immigrants from Central America "than those from Mexico or Canada." He further blamed Obama for "unilaterally" rewriting the law and not enforcing current immigration laws for some individuals.

"Now, consistent news leaks from the White House suggest the president is poised to repeat that mistake -- and make it far worse -- by rewriting the law again and dramatically expanding his unilateral action," Boehner said. "That would be a grievous mistake."

While admitting the immigration crisis is a tough and complex issue, Boehner wrote that the immigration system needs to be fixed, but only by a "common-sense, step-by-step" approach from Congress.

"We can only succeed if the people understand and support these reforms," Boehner said.

According to Boehner, the "right choice" for Obama is "harder." Boehner wants Obama to get his Congressional allies to do their jobs. Boehner claimed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Senate Finance Chairman Ron Wyden, D-Ore., have "utterly failed" to act and only "pay lip service," notably on tax reform.

"There is no doubt that immigration reform and tax reform will be hard, but there is also no doubt that acting the right way will boost our economy, create jobs and -- perhaps -- begin to rebuild the tattered bonds of trust between the American people and their government," Boehner said.

The House Speaker's op-ed comes after he told the press that there are several steps Obama "can and should" do "without the need for congressional action" to secure the southern U.S. border.

The House has had a turbulent time dealing with immigration reform. After initially withdrawing its $645 million immigration bill because of lack of GOP support, House lawmakers passed the bill with full support from the Republican Party. The House also voted to repeal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which exempts up to 500,000 undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children from deportation.

According to White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, Obama is weighing execution action on immigration reform in late August or early September pending legal options and recommendations by the Departments of Homeland Security and Justice.
