Roundtable: Is immigration reform dead?

(CNN) - Don't expect to see lawmakers doing any bi-partisan trust fall exercises in the halls of Congress any time soon. The Speaker of the House came out swinging today, grilling the president on his trustworthiness and suggesting any delays on an immigration reform deal will be caused by the new White House strategy of using executive orders to go it alone.

"Now he's running around the country that he's gonna keep acting on his own. Keeps talking about his phone and his pen and he's feeding more distrust about whether he's committed to the rule of law. There's widespread doubt about whether this administration can be trusted to enforce our laws, and it's going to be difficult to move any immigration legislation until that changes," Speaker of the House John Boehner said Thursday.

CNN chief congressional correspondent Dana Bash and national political reporter for The Washington Post Robert Costa discuss.
