 House Speaker Paul Ryan  Tuesday defended President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration and refugees, but said he regretted the confusion caused by its implementation.

 

"The president has a responsibility to the security of this country," Ryan told reporters. "It's regrettable that there was confusion on the rollout of this. No one wanted to see people with green cards or special immigrant visas, like translators, get caught up in all of this."

The Wisconsin Republican said he spoke at length with U.S. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and was "confident that he is, on a going forward basis, going to make sure that things are done correctly."
