SURPRISE: Ryan Again SIDES WITH DEMOCRATS Against Trump [VIDEO]
And the Republicans take issue with being called RINOS?
After watching House Majority Leader Paul Ryan equivocate publicly, America should understand that we have a one-party system.

Ryan pulled a John McCain, who campaigned against Obamacare then conveniently voted to keep it. It’s become apparent that these egomaniacs who couldn’t make it as president now take out their passive-aggressive butt-hurt attitudes out on President Trump and the American people.
In the case of Ryan, his change of heart has to do with DACA.
So what is DACA?
Under Obama, On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. Obama felt that by allowing children into the United States eventually bringing their parents would be a foregone conclusion. He limited the program to two years in order to not over-step his authority, which DACA most certainly does.
Along with allowing “children” to enter the United States under special circumstances, DACA also allowed these “children” to work.
All “Dreamers” as the children of illegals are called were essentially given a reprieve. The government thereby deferred action against them, using prosecutorial discretion. Although deferred action does not provide lawful status it certainly greases the skids to permanent residency, and ultimately citizenship.
President Trump recognized this, thus ending the illegal program. And he has a lot of support.
We documented the reaction during Trump’s visit to AZ back in Feb:
Arizona citizens made that clear, as they cheered Trump’s new immigration proposal. The president’s initial approach on immigration won them over. However, as President Trump showcased a few clarifications to his immigration policy, folks in Arizona cheered like rednecks at a tractor pull.
Alan Gomez of USA Today reports:
The Department of Homeland Security issued a sweeping set of orders Tuesday that implement President Trump’s plan to increase immigration enforcement, placing the vast majority of the nation’s 11 million undocumented immigrants at risk of deportation.
The memos instruct all agents — including Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) — to identify, capture and quickly deport every undocumented immigrant they encounter.
Next, the memos require undocumented immigrants caught entering the country to be placed in detention until their cases are resolved, increase the ability of local police to help in immigration enforcement, call for the hiring of 10,000 more immigration agents and allow planning to begin on an expansion of the border wall between the United States and Mexico.
The memos make undocumented immigrants who have been convicted of a crime the highest priority for enforcement operations.
Leftists will find it difficult to argue against getting rid of heinous criminals.
Yet, Paul Ryan commented,
“I actually don’t think he should [end DACA, and I believe that this is something Congress has to fix.”
Sure, because Congress has done such a great job fixing things under Ryan’s and McConnell’s leadership?
“Let me back up for a second.
President Obama did not have the legislative authority to do what he did. You can’t, as an executive, write law out of thin air. And so that is very very clear. We’ve made that very clear. Having said all of that, there are people in limbo.
These are kids who know no other country, who were brought here by their parents and don’t know another home. And so I really do believe there needs to be a legislative solution. that is one that we are working on, and I think we want to give people peace of mind.
And so I’ve had plenty of conversations with the White House about this issue, and I think the president as well has mentioned that he wants to have a humane solution for this problem, and I think that is something that we in Congress are working on and need to deliver.”
Congress doesn’t deliver. The president knows this, thus his warning recently for Congress to get their act together.
Further, President Trump has already said that he would look at citizenship for children brought here illegally by their parents. It was evident that he understood the plight of these children. That said, we still can’t allow what’s been happening with illegal immigration to continue. Also, Americans need to understand that there will be sad cases involving people who get deported.
Leftists know this, which is why they are lining up the sob stories. They want to make this a moral dilemma for America. But it’s not. The moral dilemma is on the countries who persecute their citizens, whether economically or otherwise. The onus lies not with America, as we prop up most of the countries who continue to take advantage of us.
So Paul Ryan needs to stop blaming America for problems created by other countries. Further, he needs to get 100 percent behind the president in this matter. Ryan miscalculates the backlash for this issue, as the Democrats did in the election of 2016.
Americans want our immigration laws to be followed. And the only want to address inequities is though our legal system.
