Ryan: Deporting Dreamers "is not in our nation's interest"
Paul Ryan said that he believes that removing DACA recipients from the United States "is not in our nation's interest" at an AP Newsmakers event this morning — with the caveat that immigration reform has to include increased border security.
- More on immigration: Ryan said that a clean DREAM Act is a no-go with his Republican caucus and made the case for some form of a physical barrier: "I think a wall actually works…Circumstances on the ground should dictate what you need at various places."
- Tax reform: According to Ryan, the GOP's goal is to pass tax reform by the end of 2017.
- Trump and Congress: "It gets a little frustrating [for Trump] because Congress doesn't work like a business."
