House Speaker Paul Ryan is telling Republicans that they will address the issue of immigration through the regular legislative process.
That’s the word from Rep. Dennis Ross on Wednesday after the weekly closed-door meeting. Ross said Ryan told the GOP caucus that the leaders “were not going to jam anybody, we’re going to go through the process.” That means the chamber will not put the legislation on a fast track, but go through a more deliberative process.
President Donald Trump is dismantling the program protecting hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who were brought into the country illegally as children. He gave Congress six months to come up with a legislative solution.
Congress has repeatedly struggled to come up with a legislation solution to deal with immigration.
