    House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., in 2015 promised conservative members he wouldn’t allow an immigration bill to pass without support from the majority of House Republicans, referred to as the Hastert Rule, but Ryan has backtracked over the last year and, recently said President Donald Trump’s support is necessary to advance legislation, according to The Washington Post.


    “If we have legislation coming through here that is worked with and supported by the president,” Ryan told reporters in September, “I’m very confident that our members will support that.”



    Dennis Hastert was the longest-serving GOP Speaker of the House. In 2003, he coined the term “Hastert Rule,” when he said “the job of the Speaker is not to expedite legislation that runs counter to the wishes of the majority of the majority.”


    Ryan made the same promise concerning immigration before taking over as House Speaker.


    “Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) said Ryan agreed that legislation should be moved only with the support of the majority of the majority. In particular, he said, that calmed immigration hawks wary of Ryan’s past support for measures that would offer illegal immigrants a path to citizenship,” the Post reported in 2015.



    Trump terminated DACA last fall, and gave Congress until March to come up with a solution on how to assist the 690,000 immigrants who were brought to the country as children and face the loss of their protections from deportation.


    His aides on Thursday outlined an immigration plan that would offer a path to citizenship for up to 1.8 million illegal immigrants, including measures to curb some legal immigration programs and provide a border wall with Mexico.
