“Se llenan la boca”

This tripped me up in the news translation I did recently:

“Las acciones recientes de algunos congresistas que se llenan la boca diciendo que son pro inmigrantes…”

The best translations of “llenarse la boca” I could find are:
“boast of”
“boast about”
“talk a lot about”

If you have a better translation, please share it!
