Just when you thought he couldn’t get any worse, he does.
Trump voters overwhelmingly do NOT want amnesty for illegals, but Paul Ryan is siding with Dems and John Mccain.
The unpopular house speaker is pleading with President Trump to KEEP Obama’s “dreamer” program alive.
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Friday he doesn’t think President Trump should end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
“I actually don’t think he should do that and I believe that this is something Congress has to fix,” Ryan told WCLO Janesville.
Ryan added that he doesn’t believe President Barack Obama had the legal authority to institute DACA, but it’s up to Congress to fix the situation.
“President Obama did not have the legislative authority to do what he did,” said Ryan. “You can’t, as an executive, write law out of thin air.”
Under DACA, nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children were given work permits and deferred from deportation.
Texas and nine other states threatened court action against the program unless Trump rescinds it by Sept. 5.
