Pelosi speaks for document eight hours in favor of 'Dreamers'

Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer of New York speaks with reporters as work continues on a plan to keep the government open as a funding deadline approaches at the Capitol in Washington on Tuesday

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi made a record-long speech speech against the House spending bill Wednesday, February 7, 208.

The new effort to whip against the budget plan comes after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said she would not pursue a coordinated effort to vote no on the plan.

Chances of a repeat of last month's shutdown had appeared to be fading as prospects of a budget pact grew, but Pelosi's opposition could throw a monkey wrench into the plan.

"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.

Ms Pelosi was advocating on behalf of undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, known as "Dreamers". "The longer @NancyPelosi bloviates on the House Floor against the deal-the more I'm inclined to support it", tweeted Republican Congressman Mark Walker, who had expressed reservations toward the initial budget deal, while two other Republicans told Politico's Jake Sherman that they thought her speech would help them rally votes for their version of the bill.

A source told CNN that Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer worked on the spending deal for weeks - and didn't include any other House Democrats in negotiations - and then she turned around and rejected it. After the last shutdown members are still unclear on the path forward and expect the Senate to pass this, leaving them little room.

What's more, "she wasn't wearing these kinds of shoes", Ryan said of his flat shoewear. It would also provide money for his border wall and curb legal immigration.

The measure, aides said, also contains nearly $90 billion in overdue disaster aid and an increase in the government borrowing cap that would prevent a first-ever US government default on its obligations.

Ryan, however, has said repeatedly he would only bring a bill to the floor that has President Donald Trump's support, and the Hurd-Aguilar bill does not.

On the eve of another shutdown deadline, immigration activists joined liberal leaders Wednesday in threatening political retribution against congressional Democrats who ignore young immigrants in a massive spending deal.

"I was undocumented. I know the fear, the shame, the uncertainty, the limitations that entails", she said.

Ryan, playing hardball, has promised no such vote, saying that he won't consider any DACA bill that lacks Trump's support.

No. 2 Senate Democratic leader Dick Durbin of IL, his party's chief immigration negotiator, bristled at the comment.

Dreamers were previously protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals scheme - something which was ended by President Donald Trump previous year.

Both chambers are expected to vote on the budget package Thursday, just hours before the current short-term spending patch expires.

"People in our caucus will do what they think is in the best interests of their constituents and for the country", the New York Democrat said. That move is used in the Senate to delay or block legislation, and there isn't a House equivalent. The agreement is broad and includes increased military and domestic spending, raising the debt ceiling and providing expanded disaster relief funding.
