GOP leaders add their voices to the chorus calling for DACA program to stay

Asked on a radio program whether the president should end DACA, Ryan said: “I actually don’t think he should do that.”

“I believe that this is something that Congress has to fix,” Ryan told WCLO, a station in his home town of Janesville, Wis. He said GOP leaders have been clear that Obama lacked the legislative authority to create the program.

The speaker emphasized, however, that DACA recipients “are people who are 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 that there needs to be a legislative solution.”
