House Speaker addresses Trump’s immigration policy

Published: Updated:

WASHINGTON (CNN) — House Speaker Paul Ryan (R) attempted to clarify some of the immigration statements that President-elect Donald Trump made throughout the campaign.

“We gotta know who’s coming and going in the country. We gotta secure the border,” Ryan said. “So, we believe an enforcement bill, a border security enforcement bill is really the first priority, and that’s what we’re focused on.”

Despite passed disagreements between the President-elect and members of the Republican Party, Ryan stressed party unity on the issue.

“We are not planning on erecting a deportation force,” Ryan said. “Donald Trump’s not planning on that.”
