House Speaker Paul Ryan, or as I like to call him RINO Ryan, has spoken out about the issues with Deferred Action Child for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and deporting ‘DREAMERS’.
He seems to think that deporting the DACA recipients are “not in our nation’s interest.” He wants congress to find a legislative fix for the 800,000 people under the program.
Ryan said, “I do believe that kicking these 800,000 kids out to countries that they have probably not been to since they were toddlers, countries that speak languages that they may not even know, is not in our nation’s interest.”
Ryan discussed immigration at length. But while he declined to discuss details of a deal, he hinted a fix with border security measures could get through Congress.
“I don’t want to negotiate through the media,” he added.
Ryan is meeting this afternoon with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and the leaders of the Hispanic, Black and Asian American and Pacific Islander Caucuses to discuss DACA.
The Obama-era program provides relief for immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.
President Trump rescinded the program last week, but gave Congress six months to figure out a legislative solution for 690,000 undocumented immigrants who could soon lose their work permits and deferral from deportation.
Ryan said Trump “made the right call” in giving Congress a six-month deadline to find a solution.
“I wanted him to give us time, I didn’t want it to be rescinded on day one and create chaos. But he was right in that President Obama was wrong in basically using legislative powers that he did not possess,” said Ryan.
“What we asked the White House is to give us some time, so we could come up with the right consensus and compromise to fix this problem,” he added.
Ryan added, “I do believe there’s got to be a solution to this problem, but at the same time I think it’s only reasonable, it makes perfect common sense, that we deal with the problem that was the root cause of this, which is we do not have operational control of our borders.”
