WASHINGTON - US House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said on Thursday he hoped to see compromise immigration reform that combines border security measures with protections for immigrants brought illegally to the United States as children.
President Donald Trump on Tuesday ended a program for so-called Dreamers and gave Congress six months to find a legislative fix. Asked if he would put the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to a vote, Ryan told the New York Times, "I'm going to put a consensus plan on the floor, because I want members of Congress in both parties to talk to each other and find consensus on this issue."
He said he believed addressing border security would lead to consensus.
