“I actually don’t think he should do that,” Ryan said when asked about Trump’s proposal to end [DACA]. “I believe that this is something that Congress has to fix.”
“However well-intentioned, President Obama’s DACA program was a clear abuse of executive authority, an attempt to create law out of thin air.

Congress writes laws, not the president, and ending this program fulfills a promise that President Trump made to restore the proper role of the executive and legislative branches.”
That’s a real portrait in courage, ZEGS.
