Paul Ryan Refuses Dialogue With Dreamers He Voted To Deport

At a book signing in Florida, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) refused to explain his vote against the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) bill to several young Dreamers who tried to speak to him about the issue. Ryan's book is entitled "The Way Forward," yet it's difficult to see how we'll move forward on immigration while shutting down dialogue. One young undocumented immigrant asked, "A couple weeks ago you voted for defunding DACA. It would put me and my sister up for deportation. We just had a question — do you want to deport me and my sister?” After telling them to "Read the book," Ryan had store security hustle away each questioner, as seen in the following video. Ray Jose, an organizer for United We Dream, concludes, “I ask you again, Congressman Ryan, are you going to take away our Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and deport us, deport Dreamers like myself? And if so, and that’s your way forward, know that Dreamers before me fought for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and Dreamers like myself will defend it.” Watch:
