Nancy Pelosi has been telling DREAMer stories for 7 hours. And she's still talking
10 February, 2018, 02:49
House Minority LeaderNancy Pelosi made a record-long speech speech against the House spending bill Wednesday, February 7, 208.
Pelosi's decision to take the floor followed a statement earlier in the day by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), announcing a two-year budget deal that increases military spending at the behest of President Trump, at a cost of $160 billion and provides approximately $128 billion in non-defense discretionary spending.
The marathon address included many stories from Pelosi (D-Calif.), including one in which she said her 6-year-old grandson once wished that he was Hispanic on his birthday. On Tuesday, Ryan said, "We're not going to bring immigration legislation through that the president doesn't support".
"This morning, we took a measure of our Caucus because the package does nothing to advance bipartisan legislation to protect Dreamers in the House. Without a commitment from Speaker Ryan comparable to the commitment from Leader McConnell, this package does not have my support".
However, it would not resolve the plight of immigrant "Dreamers" who face deportation after being brought to the US illegally as children. "And then hopefully tomorrow she will validate that trust by stopping us from voting for it". "Perhaps I should bring my rosary, blessed by the Pope", Ms. Pelosi said.
Mr. Crowley, chair of the House Democratic Caucus, said he's not formally lobbying his caucus against the bill, but he is "having conversations" with them about why he feels this way.
