Pelosi Protests Stalled Immigration Talks With Marathon House Speech

She declared the agreement "does not have my support, nor does it have the support of a large number of members of our caucus".

On the drive in to work a few hours later, she called her deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill and told him to start compiling material - not just dreamers' stories, but religious verses. "It makes President Obama look like a master of financial restraint". Under the banner of Skilled Immigrants in America, they will be visiting dozens of Senators and Congressmen to raise awareness on an issue that has convulsed U.S politics. If Pelosi's stunt forces centrists to cover their political backsides and the budget deal fails for lack of Democratic support, suddenly Schumer and his very vulnerable colleagues in red states will get hammered over yet another shutdown on behalf of illegal immigrants.

The broader agreement in the Senate would award whopping spending increases to both the Pentagon and domestic federal programs, as well as approve overdue disaster relief money.

"I have had the privilege of reading the testimony from Dreamers, I still have more", she said, receiving applause in the chamber. The GOP has given away their one "identity card" by backing this bill, she said.

KELLY: Yeah. One last thing before I let you go, Kelsey, which is, this big budget bill that passed this morning - it passed despite deep reservations among deficit hawks who are concerned about the impact on the deficit, of the additional spending it will involve. We will solve this DACA problem.

The Senate is expected to pass the bill Thursday and send it to the House attached to a continuing resolution to fund the government into March.

That introduced doubts as to whether the plan could pass in House, where prominent GOP conservatives are also opposed to the higher spending.

On Wednesday, Pelosi broke the record for the longest House floor speech - her eight-hour speech, the longest since 1909 at least - was meant to protest the fact that the plight of DACA recipients has not yet been addressed by Congress.

According to multiple credible reports, Ryan is also not seeking reelection, though he has not yet announced a decision. But this time there are no active negotiations going on to try to get conservatives on board.

They secured the first piece in this week's deal when, as part of a compromise that also included a slate of Democratic desires for billions in new domestic spending, the House and Senate signed off on a almost $165 billion hike in the defense budget (over two years). Former California congressman George Miller, her longtime friend and adviser, used to say that as he watched her work the floor for that last few votes, he could nearly hear the theme music from "Jaws". Pelosi sounded increasingly skeptical that Republicans will act. "Democrats should stop talking like this in public", he said. It was pretty darn impressive, ' Ryan told reporters at the U.S. Capitol.

Vice President Mike Pence says the Trump administration is "hopeful" the government shutdown that began at midnight will not last long.

"The message is that if you don't support this, you don't support the military", Walker said, before adding that people should be able to identify as both defense and fiscal hawks.

He said he believes the are smarter ways to protect the border. That would make for a very hard decision for Democrats, who, again, would have nowhere else to turn.

But many Senate Democrats immediately viewed the move as a mistake, and the Friday night shutdown ended by Monday afternoon, affecting just one workday for most federal employees. He says he's not taking that into account. "However, we can not allow our success in one part of the discussion to diminish our leverage in another".
