    House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)58% is ruling out making any cuts to Muslim immigration. In an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News, Ryan declared that considering an applicant's religion would not be "appropriate" and would be fundamentally un-American---insisting "that's not who we are." ... Ryan said, in part, that the reason the program could not simply be canceled is because, "We're a compassionate country. The refugees laws are important laws and we don't want terrorists to dictate how we run--whether we have a law or not." While throughout the interview Ryan seemed to ground his argument on the...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan is lining up a showdown vote for Thursday on President Obama's plan to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees in the United States. But conservatives on Capitol Hill who want to see the refugee program halted are warning that Ryan's plan is nothing but a smokescreen designed to give lip-service while refusing to defund the program. Ryan likely has no intention of cutting off the flow of Muslim refugees into the U.S., nor does he plan to ensure Syria's persecuted Christian minority gets rescued from the clutches of ISIS, sources told WND.

Paul Ryan (R-WI) that he would in any way try to curb the nation’s importation of Muslims on visas. By the end of the year, Congress will have to pass a government funding measure to appropriate funds for all federal operations. The Boehner-Obama debt deal, backed by Ryan, established the spending levels— but Congress still has to pass the actual spending bills which contain the money. Included in this package will be funding for...

In a "60 Minutes" profile that aired Sunday, Ryan told interviewer Scott Pelley he doesn't advocate the GOP presidential front-runner's plan to deport every illegal immigrant. "I can't imagine how it could happen," Ryan said. Ryan, who at 45 is the youngest House speaker since the 1860s, said he doesn't see the job as a long-term proposition. "I was just planning on serving out my tenure as Ways and Means chair, and then going finding out something else to do with my life," he...

    WASHINGTON (AP) The White House on Monday accused new House Speaker Paul Ryan of "pandering to the extreme right wing" of his party on immigration. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Ryan's recent comments on an immigration overhaul are "preposterous" and disappointing. The Wisconsin Republican said Sunday that he's ruled out passing comprehensive immigration legislation while President Barack Obama is in office. He said Obama cannot be trusted on the issue because he went around Congress to take executive actions shielding from deportation millions of people living in the country illegally. Earnest called the remark "ironic." He said it's Ryan...

Boehner, who relinquished it under fire. But the personal jubilance and high expectations felt by Mr. Boehner, who was elected in a sweeping Republican takeover of the House in 2011, have been replaced with a grim recognition that Mr. Ryan's ascent stems not from electoral victory but rather the chaos in the ranks of his party's sizable majority. Mr. Ryan received 236 votes, a comfortable margin that included several of the hardline...

Those 45 members are enough to block him from getting the Speakership during the partisan floor vote on Thursday — if the 45 GOP legislators maintain their opposition, and if Ryan is not aided by a last-minute bloc of Democratic votes.During the closed-door conference, Ryan won just 200 votes for the nomination. Former Florida House Speaker Rep. Daniel Webster (R-FL) earned a whopping 43 votes. Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN)—who isn’t officially running for Speaker—received one vote. House...
