More than a dozen immigration activists blocked the hallway in front of Speaker John A. Boehner’s office in one of the House buildings on Wednesday, demanding that he bring an immigration bill to the floor for an immediate vote.

“Legislate — we can’t wait,” the group chanted as police removed them, one by one, from the hallway in the Longworth House Office Building.

The protest comes a day after Mr. Boehner’s top lieutenant, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, lost his GOP primary in a race defined by Mr. Cantor’s support for at least some legal status for young illegal immigrants.
