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."
