WASHINGTON - House Speaker Paul Ryan is ruling out comprehensive immigration reform while President Barack Obama is in office.

The new leader of the Republican-controlled House says in several interviews Sunday that he will not work with Obama because the president went around Congress with an executive order to shield from deportation millions of people living here illegally.

He says Obama "can't be trusted" on the issue. Ryan's decision pushes off any comprehensive overhaul until at least 2017, when Obama leaves office.

Obama issued directives a year ago that gave temporary relief from deportation to about 4 million immigrants in the country illegally, along with permits authorizing them to work in the U.S.
