House Speaker John Boehner pushed back on remarks by Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser to President Barack Obama, with an aide telling Newsmax on Friday that no “commitment” exists between the Ohio Republican and the White House on passing immigration reform legislation after the summer primary elections.

“Republicans are committed to reforming our immigration system, but as the speaker has said repeatedly, it’s difficult to see how we make progress until the American people have faith that President Obama will enforce the law as written,” spokesman Michael Steel told Newsmax in a statement.

In remarks at the SkyBridge Alternatives Conference in Las Vegas, Jarrett said that Boehner’s support comes amid strong opposition from other GOP representatives, particularly those backed by the tea party.

Boehner may opt for multiple bills rather than a single, Jarrett said, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports, adding that the White House supported either approach.
