Paul Ryan: Immigration debate 'next big priority'

WASHINGTON  Without making any new promises, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Thursday he was committed to bringing an immigration bill to the floor as the "next big priority" to protect so-called Dreamers from deportation by a March deadline.

Ryan is trying to strike a delicate balance by appealing to Democrats and his own centrist Republicans  whose votes he needs to pass a sweeping budget deal  while not specifically embracing any particular legislative proposal that could alienate conservatives or be met with disapproval by President Donald Trump, whose support he needs for any immigration plan.
