Newly-elected House speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) said in an interview aired Sunday that President Obama was “untrustworthy” to address immigration reform.
Ryan had said that he would not introduce legislation related to immigration reform while Obama is President.
Ryan reiterated these thoughts in an interview with ABC News’ “This Week” that aired Sunday.
“I think he’s proven untrustworthy on this issue. He tried to go around Congress with an Executive Order to rewrite laws unilaterally,” Ryan said. “Presidents don’t write laws. Congress writes laws.”
“So yes, Ryan continued. “I do not believe we should and we won’t bring immigration legislation with a president we cannot trust on this issue. If we believe and have consensus on things like border enforcement, and interior security, then that’s fine.”
