House Speaker John Boehner says the public won't support spending money on the border crisis unless Congress makes policy changes to return migrant kids home faster.

In a statement Tuesday Boehner also charges that President Barack Obama's refusal to stand up to Democratic critics is jeopardizing Congress' ability to act.

At issue is a 2008 law that Republicans want to change to allow Central American kids to be sent back home without lengthy legal proceedings.

The White House has supported such changes but has sent mixed signals and Democrats have grown increasingly opposed.

Now Congress looks like it may take no action to deal with the border crisis or Obama's $3.7 billion emergency spending request.

Still Boehner says House Republicans will work to chart a path forward.
