Republicans savage Obama's immigration overhaul
Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner has condemned US President Barack Obama's use of executive powers to force through immigration reform.
Mr Obama's plan means that nearly 5 million people living illegally in the US would now be eligible for work permits.
The conservative leader said the action sabotages any chance of enacting cross-party reforms and damages the presidency itself.
The BBC's North America Editor Jon Sopel reports.
