Speaker Asks President Trump to Re-Consider Killing DACA

Today, CNN reports that House Speaker Paul Ryan has asked the President to hold off his plan to complete cancel DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program).  Reportedly the President is still "mulling" the idea. 

Ryan has long been sympathetic to the plight of Dreamers. At a CNN town hall at the beginning of the year, Ryan was asked by a young woman protected under DACA whether he wanted her deported. He said he was working with the Trump administration and seeking a "humane solution."   "What we have to do is find a way to ensure that you can get right with the law," the speaker told the young woman.
