NEWS ROUND UP: Speaker Ryan’s Office Kicks Hispanic Members of Congress Out of a Meeting with ICE Officials

“Just as President Trump is setting a mass deportation force to kick law-abiding hardworking immigrants out of the country, Speaker Paul Ryan is kicking his Hispanic colleagues out of important ICE meetings. Their shared antipathy towards the Latino community is jarring,” said Javier Gamboa of the DCCC.

At President Trump’s command, several members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus were forced out of a meeting with Immigration and Customs (ICE) Enforcement. Here’s what they’re saying:
