    House Speaker Weekly Briefing

    House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) briefed reporters and responded to questions on a variety of topics. Most of the briefing focused on the House Democratic sit-in to force a vote on gun legislation, which he called a publicity stunt. He also spoke about the Supreme Court’s decision on Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) and President Obama’s executive actions on immigration. The court in a 4-4 vote upheld a lower court’s injunction against the Obama administration’s deferred-action immigration policy.
