WASHINGTON - House Republicans plan to vote to authorize legal action against President Barack Obama over his executive actions on immigration.

House Speaker John Boehner announced the plans in a closed-door meeting with lawmakers on Tuesday. He told them GOP leaders are finalizing plans to authorize litigation to block Obama's moves that lifted the threat of deportation for millions of people here illegally.

Options include joining a lawsuit already filed by states over the issue, or filing a separate lawsuit, according to aides.

The House already has passed legislation to overturn Obama's actions, but the Senate looks unlikely to agree to the bill.

House Republicans already have sued to try to undo Obama's health care law.
