White House calls "absurd" the refusal of the Speaker of the House of Representatives to immigration reform

The White House "absurd" crossed the refusal of the new Speaker of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan, a vote in the US Congress comprehensive immigration reform after the legislature was one of his drivers own a few years ago.

The White House spokesman Josh Earnest, said today that Ryan was "fundamental to work in a bipartisan manner in Congress and create legislation" on immigration reform that came to be approved by the Senate in 2013.

"So it's particularly ironic that President Ryan made this statement when he was instrumental in drafting the agreement, and block the law even though they know it will be approved. That is particularly ironic to suggest that no longer trusts the president on this issue. Is absurd, "Earnest said.

The new chairman of the House argued Sunday that Obama "has proven to be unreliable in this issue" because "he tried to unilaterally rewrite the law himself."

"Presidents do not write the laws. Congress does, "said Ryan told NBC.

Ryan, 45, he was referring to the executive actions that Obama signed on November 20, 2014 to regularize five of the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the country and are now stuck in a court in New Orleans (Louisiana ) by the legal offensive several Republican states.

"The president has shown that we can not trust him on that subject," said Ryan, whose election last week became the president of the lower house US younger since the nineteenth century and became the third most powerful person in Washington after Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.

Thus, Ryan said that Congress did not discuss immigration reform until Obama leaves office in January 2017 and said he will not drive no similar bill unless the Republican majority in both houses, so agree .

Meanwhile, the campaign of Democratic candidate for the White House, Hillary Clinton, also lashed out today against the refusal of the congressman.

"The announcement by the speaker of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan, you are not going to pass immigration reform while President Obama is in power shows that the most extremist group of his party controls the agenda of the House of Representatives" , said the director for the Latino community of the Clinton campaign, Lorella Praelli.

Praelli insisted that the refusal of Ryan, who even managed to join the group of conservative pressure inside the Capitol to pass the amendment, the intentions of all the Republican candidates to revoke the president's executive actions to alleviate the deportations are added.

"Republicans continue to play political games with the lives of millions of people who are in search of the American dream to provide a better future for his family. It is time to put aside petty politics and do what most Americans want: pass comprehensive reform path to citizenship, "he reiterated.

Likewise, Republicans denounced Praelli continue to block executive orders that would benefit four million immigrants and are suspended by court order after some Republican governors denounce unconstitutional.

"Republicans continue to be the only obstacle to pass comprehensive immigration reform and as a result millions of families live in fear of being separated. It is time for this to stop. Hillary's position is clear: it will defend, renew and expand President Obama's executive orders and continue to fight for comprehensive immigration reform, "he said
