Paul Ryan is attempting to bypass President-Elect Trump strict immigration proposals.
Ryan directly denied Trump’s previous proposal, which the president-elect announced during a speech in August, to establish a “deportation task force” with the role of deporting criminal immigrants.
CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Ryan if Trump’s planned deportation task force would be ordered to use information immigrants submitted to the government in order to stay in the United States under the Obama administration in order to find them and deport them.
“It’s not happening,” Ryan said. “I’m here to tell you, in Congress, that’s not happening.”
Paul Ryan is effectively saying that living in America illegally is completely okay.
However, there might have been too much pressure on CNN, causing him to crack — but that only shows his spinelessness.
Ryan made the comment during a CNN town hall event on Thursday after he was confronted by Angelica Villalobos, an undocumented woman from Oklahoma who is protected from deportation under President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
“Do you think that I should be deported?” Villalobos, alongside her daughter, asked Ryan.
“No,” Ryan said. “I can see that you love your daughter, that you’re a nice person that has a great future ahead of you, and I hope your future’s here.”
The only thing he did approve of is Donald Trump’s wall.
