Nancy Pelosi Lauds Colorado DREAMer Marco Dorado in Epic House Speech

Nancy Pelosi has been telling DREAMer stories for 7 hours. And she's still talking

Pelosi refused to support the bipartisan budget deal Ryan, Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) agreed to earlier Wednesday unless Ryan committed to bringing up the DACA amnesty vote. Speaking primarily on the so-called Dreamers, people brought into the U.S. illegally as children, Pelosi, supplied by a stream of notes from her staff, read scores of stories about their hopes, aspirations, and fears after President Trump a year ago announced the end of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that gave them temporary status in the United States.

"We have to be strong as a country.to respect the aspirations of people who are our future", Pelosi said on the House floor. Unlike the Senate, the House has no filibuster rule - only what is known as the "magic minute" special privilege, which essentially grants top House leaders extra time to speak.

"I just got word that the House historian confirms that you have now set the record for the longest continuous speech in the House since at least 1909", said Pelosi during her marathon, reading aloud from a clerk's message.

Nancy Pelosi advocated for the legal protection of "Dreamers". He called it "the best thing we've done" for the middle class and the economy.

"House Democrats have a voice here and we must be heard", Pelosi wrote. "Perhaps I should bring my rosary, blessed by the Pope", Ms. Pelosi said. "I don't know when we would have another opportunity that matches today". She's trying to force Speaker Ryan into committing to vote an on an immigration bill. While that bill is expected to pass easily in the Senate, the House will be a tougher sell.

On Wednesday Pelosi seemed to confirm just that at an unrelated infrastructure press conference when asked whether she was whipping against the spending deal.

WITHOUT pausing once to sit down or use the bathroom Nancy Pelosi spoke for more than eight hours on February 7th to protest Congress's failure to protect young immigrants threatened with deportation.

Ms Pelosi started her remarks at about 10am and yielded the floor at 6.11pm.

House conservatives reject the citizenship pathway for Dreamers, calling it amnesty that encourages law-breakers, while House Democrats decry Trump's plans to curtail family-based immigration and end the diversity visa lottery. In what experts think may be one of, if not the, longest House addresses in history, the California Democrat is demanding that the Senate include DACA protections as part of its budget deal. When she finally stopped, she turned around to high-five her cheering colleagues before sitting down.

A harried staffer rushed up to hand her a final Dreamer's story as she tried to close her speech, prompting a Democrat to yell from a few rows back, "Read them all!"

Ryan has said he wants a solution to the DACA problem.

Pelosi also told members of her caucus planning to vote "yes" on the budget deal not to telegraph those positions in order to maintain leverage, according to two Democratic sources.
