Paul Ryan On Stopping A President Trump's Muslim Ban: We'll Sue Him!
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) has made clear he doesn't agree with a
proposal put forward by Donald Trump -- whom Ryan has endorsed -- to
ban Muslim immigration into the United States, but in an interview with the Huffington Post Thursday, Ryan
floated taking a President Trump to court if he tried to implement such
a ban or some of his other controversial proposals unilaterally.
“I would sue any president that exceeds his or her powers,” Ryan said
in a back-and-forth about Trump's claims that he could implement a
Muslim ban or build a Mexican border wall without congressional
Ryan said he wasn't sure of the "legal question" of whether Trump could institute a Muslim ban on his own as president.
“That’s a legal question that there’s a good debate about,” he said, citing the 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act.
