And Ryan says Priebus was "doing a good job of getting some discipline".

Rewriting the federal tax code, including lowering rates for corporate and personal income taxes, is a chief goal of President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans.

Trump has said he wants Congress to "legalize" the program, and he met with Democratic congressional leaders on Wednesday night to discuss a legislative way forward, but it's still far from likely that such a bill will make its way to his desk given most Republican legislators' stance on what they call "amnesty" for undocumented people.

Trump has announced he will dismantle the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in six months.

Ryan says that window should give time for Congress to act.

Ryan said that removing the immigrants covered by the program is "not in our nation's interest".

The Obama-era program extended temporary work permits and deportation protection to almost 800,000 younger immigrants brought to this country illegally as minors.

"On the week of Sept 25, there's going to be an outline that is released which reflects the consensus of the tax-writing committees - Ways and Means and Finance - and the administration", Ryan said at a news conference.

In an AP Newsmakers interview on Wednesday, the Wisconsin Republican sidestepped a question on whether Republicans would ensure their still-evolving measure wouldn't boost budget shortfalls.

"It's the beginning of a very important process to achieve for the first time in a generation overhauling the tax system, and giving middle class families a much deserved break", Ryan told reporters after a regular closed door meeting of House GOP lawmakers.

During his presidential campaign and since, Trump has repeatedly promised to build a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.
