Despite DACA, Democrats should take the deal

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of Calif., is shown on television as she speaks from the House floor on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2018, as a news conference that she was supposed to attend goes on in the background.

The House is now trying to pass a budget deal to lift spending caps and avoid the second government shutdown of the year.

USA politician Nancy Pelosi is thought to have set a new record for the longest speech ever made in the House of Representatives, after telling the stories of immigrants for eight hours. But top Democrats said they weren't corralling rank-and-file lawmakers to oppose the budget pact, leading some of the party's immigration advocates to question the forcefulness of her opposition. She did not stop speaking to use the bathroom or take any other breaks. At one point, she lamented that she didn't have a rosary, so Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) gave her one.

Some House Republicans don't like it because of its large increase in federal spending and its potential effects on the deficit and debt.

Pelosi was not violating any rules with her record-busting speech.

"We want to be sure that the public record of the Congress of the United States forever more will reflect the stories of their great contribution to America in the hopes that those stories will move the Speaker of the House to give us a vote", Pelosi said.

I believe passing this bill - to include domestic spending on issues Democrats care about - and taking a government shutdown off the table will put the focus back squarely on the Dreamers.

"We've made clear that the budget deal should be a budget deal and that members of Congress like Nancy Pelosi should not hold the government hostage over a separate issue", Sanders said. "Perhaps I should bring my rosary, blessed by the Pope", Ms. Pelosi said. When she was four years old, she wrote, she was sexually molested by a 16-year-old boy but her parents didn't report it because they were afraid of being deported.

Pelosi chose to give her remarks late Tuesday night and gave a heads up to Schumer, aides said.

"After election day I wondered if this dream would soon end, it's been a hard reality check that privileges could be taken away", Pelosi read from Klamka's letter. But Ryan, who controls the House floor, hasn't allowed for a vote on the Dream Act or other bipartisan bills to help Dreamers.

The DACA program was established in 2012 just a month after Latthivongskorn graduated from college with degrees in molecular and cellular biology, Pelosi said. Will we be a better country if we tear apart American families?

Senate leaders announced an agreement on a massive two-year bipartisan budget deal on Wednesday, but the agreement came under almost immediate fire from nearly every corner of both political parties. But Ryan said he'll only allow the House to vote on an immigration bill that Trump will sign.

Ryan's spokeswoman AshLee Strong said the speaker does intend to address immigration reform.

Ryan said that Democrats should acknowledge that "some people are going to get a little bump (from the Trump tax cut)" but that under a Democratic plan, "they'd be getting hundreds and hundreds more than under the Republican plan, and we would have been able to pay for it, by asking the wealthy and corporations to pay more". "We're continuing to press to be sure that we have an opportunity to address the Dreamer issue". She also asked Ryan, "What are you afraid of?" Pelosi said of Ryan.
