President Obama's executive action on immigration is sparking some conversation in Washington.

FOX News Radio's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington.

Arizona Republican Jeff Flake says the Senate's immigration bill includes much of what the President wants.

(Flake) "The problem is, the way he did it, it's going to make it very difficult to move the other parts of immigration reform that we really need." 

So far, House Speaker John Boehner has not allowed a vote on the bill.

Democrat Robert Menendez...

(Menendez) "Put the bill on the floor. I believe it would pass, and we would move forward."

Republicans say the President overstepped his legal authority when he signed an executive order shielding millions of illegal immigrants from deportation.
