President Obama warned Friday that he may act on his own to address immigration challenges along the southern border, as Congress prepared to leave for the August recess without sending a bill to his desk.


The House continues to work on passing some version of legislation to address the border crisis, but the Senate already has adjourned without passing a bill and has no votes scheduled until September.


"I'm going to have to make some tough choices to meet the challenge, with or without the Congress," Obama said Friday, speaking to reporters in the the White House briefing room.


He later added: "I'm going to have to act alone, because we don't have enough resources."


Unclear is whether Obama plans to use executive authority to achieve narrowly tailored goals, like sending additional resources to the border, or pursue broader and more controversial changes like suspending deportations for illegal immigrants.


The president reserved pointed words for House Republicans, whom he accused of playing political games right before the five-week recess.
