Since the election of Donald Trump, Paul Ryan has distanced himself from the conservative base that originally elected him by constantly attacking the President.
His attacks on the President have only gotten worse and worse.
And now his own words are coming back to bite him in a way you will have to see to believe.
Trump’s rescindment of DACA was a joyous occasion for anyone who believes in law and order.
Former President Obama overstepped his bounds by passing what is effectively amnesty for many illegal immigrants through executive action.
At the time, most Republicans were in an uproar, demanding its immediate rescindment.
Among those Republicans was Paul Ryan.
In an interview with Sean Hannity, the now Speaker of the House stated DACA is “blatantly unconstitutional.”

But when President Trump started talking about ending the program earlier this week, Speaker Ryan had a change of heart.
He quickly changed his past position and stated he doesn’t think President Trump should end DACA and that he would find a fix to preserve the program.
So as soon as a real chance to end what he called an unconstitutional program was presented, he immediately backtracked, siding with former President Obama.
As reported by CNN:
“House Speaker Paul Ryan on Friday gave a major boost to legislative efforts to preserve protections for young undocumented immigrants — and urged President Donald Trump to not tear up the program.
Trump told reporters Friday he was still mulling the decision. The White House press secretary said a decision would be announced Tuesday.
Responding to a question about Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, on his hometown radio station WCLO in Janesville, Wisconsin, Ryan said Congress was working on a legislative fix to preserve the program.
“I actually don’t think he should do that,” Ryan said of Trump’s consideration of terminating the program. “I believe that this is something that Congress has to fix.”
Ryan’s statement offers the most public support by anyone in the Republican congressional leadership for some sort of legislation to protect the “Dreamers” under DACA.”
As virtually any true conservative knows, despite the innocent sounding name, “Dreamers” are nothing more than illegal immigrants.
Nearly one million illegal immigrants have skirted the law using the DACA program.
President Trump saw that as a problem, and millions of Americans agreed.
The ending of DACA is another way President Trump is following through on his promise to respect the rule of law and to end illegal immigration.
But if RINOs like Paul Ryan have their way, DACA will remain in place, and millions of illegal immigrants will be given a free pass to skirt the law.
Do you support President Trump’s decision to end the DACA program?
