When it comes to former-President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, House Speaker Paul Ryan doesn’t want to toss the baby out with the bathwater.
Instead, Ryan told Wisconsin radio station WCLO on Friday that he wants Congress to somehow “fix” the program.
“I actually don’t think he should do that, and I believe that this is something that Congress has to fix,” Ryan said of rumors that President Trump could keep his campaign promise of nixing DACA.
“Having said all of that, there are people that are in limbo — these are kids that don’t know other countries, who were brought here by their parents and don’t know another home,” said Ryan. “And so I really do believe there needs to be a legislative solution, that’s one that we’re working on, and I think we want to give people peace of mind.”
The House Speaker hopes to find a “humane solution to rectifying the situation” with President Trump.
Leave it to immigration hawk Ann Coulter, however, to hit Ryan with his own words, circa a 2014 appearance with Sean Hannity.

“Unconstitutional” then, but not now, Congressman? What gives?
P Ryan lookin after his own skin. Not American ppl. Americans r tired of footing the bills for daca recipients. Not fair

The House should vote Ryan out of leadership. He attacks the president at every turn, even resorting to praising domestic terrorists Antifa.

Yeh, It’s unconstitutional to load up a state w/ Muslim “refugees” without the states approval also, but Ryan doesn’t give a damn about that

I regret having voted for Romney/Ryan; I used to trust the GOP; not anymore. Won’t be fooled by RINOs anymore…
