Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) predicts that there will be enough support for immigration reform in a GOP-led Congress.
According to the Associated Press, “Ryan said that as long as Obama doesn’t try an executive order in November or December and works with Congress,” immigration legislation can be enacted.
“I believe there are enough constructive voices in both parties that can lead to constructive immigration reform,” he told the outlet.
Ryan, who reportedly spent nearly every day behind the scenes trying to gather a coalition of House Republicans to support an immigration bill or a series of bills this year, will seek chairmanship of the powerful Ways and Means Committee. The Wisconsin representative has also not closed the door on a potential 2016 presidential run.
