Pelosi delivers the longest speech in the House's history to save DACA

McConnell tees up immigration debate

Throughout her extended speech, Pelosi offered trenchant, poignant anecdotes about young dreamers, as well as some random tangents, because how can anyone go for 7 hours without occasionally drifting into incoherence?

U.S. Senate leaders, in a rare bipartisan compromise, reached a deal on Wednesday to raise spending on military and domestic programs by nearly $300 billion over the next two years, but the agreement infuriated some fiscal conservatives.

The media was correct in reporting it was a floor speech, not a filibuster, because a filibuster occurs when there is a bill being voted on and considered on the House floor.

As one House Democrat told Politico, the impetus for a fissure runs deeper than loyalties: "Most of us are ready for a real change and new leadership.The issue is not even about personalities".

She applied for DACA status in 2012 and said she now works in health care. Pelosi said. "Give us a vote".

Senate leaders are working to finalize a two-year budget deal that would satisfy both Republicans and Democrats.

She also read directly from statements by dozens of immigrants known as "Dreamers" - people who arrived in the United States illegally as children but were protected from deportation under president Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Will Hurd, R-Texas, and Pete Aguilar, D-Calif., and said Ryan should start with that bill, "and any other bills he believes should be considered" through the Queen of the Hill process, where the measure with most votes becomes the prevailing bill to reconcile with what whatever immigration solution the Senate settles upon. "Would I want it to be all comprehensive? So, take what you can get".

His Democratic counterpart, Chuck Schumer, said the deal "should break the long cycle of spending crises that have snarled this Congress and hampered our middle class".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Pelosi "should not hold our military hostage over a separate issue".

A lack of support from House Democrats could imperil an agreement to avoid the second partial government shutdown in a month. "I believe we do". "They've never been under such direct assault", he said. "How are we going to win this?"

The government is set to shut down again once funding runs out on February 8, if no budget deal is reached in the House.

But recent polls show growing optimism among voters about a tax-cut bill that recently passed.

"The speaker of the House is saying we don't matter here, the members of the House", she said.

"This agreement, which I fought very hard for numerous things that are in there and I think that it's a good bill", the California Democrat said on Capitol Hill.
