Ryan: Border Security Is Our Focus, Not Mass Deportations

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) said border security not mass deportations was going to be the focus of Republican legislators and President-elect Trump.

When asked about concerns over a deportation force, Ryan said, “Sure, sure and I think we should put people’s minds at ease. That is not what we’re focused on. We’re focused on securing the border. We think that’s first and foremost before we get into any other immigration issue, we’ve got to know who’s coming and going in the country. We’re going to secure the border. We believe and border security enforcement bill is the priority. That’s what we’re focused on.”

He added, “We’re not focused on — we are not planning on erecting a deportation force. Donald Trump’s not planning on that.”
