Paul Ryan Says "There Will Be A Compromise" On DACA

Share

All year, Democrats have insisted that they will block any legislation that contains funding for a wall along the length of the US border with Mexico, a top Trump campaign goal that many Republicans in Congress also do not support.

"I wanted him to give us time".

Speaking in an AP Newsmaker interview, Ryan said he believes the president "made the right call" when he announced that he would give Congress six months to figure out what to do with former President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program before dismantling it. DACA has given almost 800,000 young people protection from deportation and the right to work legally in the country.

Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Charles Schumer - whose Wednesday night dinner with Trump was at the heart of the dispute - insisted there was discussion and even agreement on legislation that would offer eventual citizenship to the immigrants in question.

Prior to becoming House speaker, Ryan had a long record of pushing for immigration reform, including supporting a path to eventual citizenship for all 11 million immigrants estimated to be living in the US illegally, and particularly those often referred to as "Dreamers".

President Trump once again played host to Democratic leaders Wednesday night.

After the House members have seen the outline, "the tax writing committees are going to take feedback and input, and then they're going to go produce their bills in the week ahead", Ryan said at Wednesday morning's GOP conference meeting.

There's been a lot of talk of "is the president denying that there's a deal?"

The British police arrested on Saturday an 18-year-old man in relation to the bombing at London's Parsons Green tube station. Police say the man has been arrested under Section 41 of the terrorism act, and that he remains in police custody.

The announcement of the working group comes shortly after Democrats declared they struck an agreement with the president to codify safeguards for "DREAMers" while crafting a border security package that doesn't include funding for a border wall. He spoke at a rally by civil-rights groups. He said the White House is "learning what works and I think they are improving". "He is the president of all of us", said Sen. "And if he could bring Democrats and Republicans together to find a place for these kids to stay in the country they know, and secure our border, that would be a giant step forward".

Associated Press writers Catherine Lucey, Jonathan Lemire, Kevin Freking, Andrew Taylor, Alan Fram and Matthew Daly contributed.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) will convene an ad hoc working group of congressional Republicans to formulate a path forward for DACA recipients whose work permits will begin expiring in less than six months, Politico reported Thursday.
