    Speaker Ryan: No Immigration Reform Because Obama 'Untrustworthy'

    Newly-elected House Speaker Paul Ryan all but ended any chance of comprehensive immigration reform during the final year of President Barack Obama's term in office.

    In an interview Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," Ryan said consensus on other issues affecting immigration policy, such as border enforcement, could be possible. But because the president took executive action, comprehensive reform is off the table.

    "I don't think we can trust the president on this issue," Ryan told NBC's Chuck Todd. "The president has proven himself untrustworthy on this issue because he tried to unilaterally rewrite the law himself. Presidents don't write laws. Congress does."
