Ryan on Friday called the comments "unfortunate" and "unhelpful" but argued negotiations for a deal regarding the DACA program must continue, even if it's not resolved by the January 19 spending deal deadline.
Washington:US lawmakers will resort to passing a short-term federal spending deal next week to avoid an embarrassing government shutdown, House Speaker Paul Ryan said Friday, as prospects for a long-term 2018 agreement dimmed.

When the moderator clarified that he was referring to "a word I can't mention" about African countries, Ryan said he was focused on other issues on Thursday and read those comments later at night.
Ryan also conceded that House Republicans would not aggressively pursue entitlement reform this year, despite saying last month it was on the agenda.

"I thought about my own family", he said, describing his Irish immigrant relatives who came to the US on what he said were called "coffin ships" and began working the railroads.
