Showing exactly why he was the overwhelming choice of the big moneyed interests, newly crowned Speaker of the House Paul Ryan has come out against Donald Trump’s deportation plan. Ryan, who replaced the weeping orange tosspot John Boehner didn’t take long to confirm the suspicions of those who have always viewed him with a skeptical eye. Mr. Speaker’s comments came during an interview on CBS’s flagship McNews program 60 Minutes where he echoed the sentiments of Emperor Obama over what the Washington Post is derogatorily calling “Operation Wetback”.
ABC News reports that “Speaker Paul Ryan Opposes Donald Trump’s Immigration Plan”:
House Speaker Paul Ryan said that he does not support Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s plan to round up and deport millions of illegal immigrants.
“I can’t imagine how it could happen, so no,” Ryan said in an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes,” when asked if he would support Trump’s proposal.
The Republican frontrunner’s plan is influenced by President Dwight Eisenhower’s controversial campaign that deported nearly 1 million undocumented Mexican immigrants in the 1950s, and has been criticized by Democrats and Republicans alike.
While he’s criticized Trump’s immigration rhetoric in the past, Ryan has said he’d support “every one” of the Republican presidential candidates as the GOP’s nominee for president.
The Wisconsin Republican’s own immigration position has come under scrutiny since he decided to pursue the top job in the House last month.
Ryan, who has previously called for comprehensive immigration reform in 2013, said Sunday he still personally supports a pathway to legal status for undocumented immigrants “as a way to make amends with the law.”
“You need to have a vibrant legal immigration system,” he said. “Legal immigration is America. My name is ‘Ryan.'”
Congressman Ryan has always been a calculating little weasel and overly trusting conservatives have been hornswoggled by the media on this guy who is nothing more than a sober version of Boehner who just scammed everyone to get the gig along with shorter work hours. He is a Trojan horse for every rotten globalist trade deal, open borders and the continuing use of the government as a redistribution of wealth machine to special interests. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
