WASHINGTON (AP) – House Speaker Paul Ryan and another Republican are urging President Donald Trump not to rescind federal protections for immigrant children whose parents brought them to the country illegally.
Ryan was asked about Trump’s rumored move to roll back so-called DACA protections for such children on Wisconsin radio station WCLO. Ryan said, “I actually don’t think we should do that.”
Ryan says, “This is something that Congress has to fix.”
And Utah GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch sent out a statement in anticipation of a Trump announcement on Friday saying he’s urged Trump not to revoke former President Barack Obama’s efforts to protect “individuals who entered our country unlawfully as children through no fault of their own and who have built their lives here.”
