Paul Ryan's Own Staff Applauds Nancy Pelosi After Record-Breaking House Speech

Nancy Pelosi Says She Won't Support Budget Deal Without Immigration Promise

Social media users appreciated her effort, starting the trend #GoNancyGo.

"Our Dreamers hang in limbo, with a cruel cloud of fear and uncertainty above them", Pelosi said. She has managed to hold her caucus together against a Republican majority with more than a few screws loose, and a Speaker who has the same control over his membership as a flea does over the St. Bernard it's riding. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) wondered.

The House minority leader began her speech at 10:04 local time (4am NZT) - and did not finish until the evening.

"If a Dream Act were brought to the floor, it would pass immediately with strong bipartisan support", Pelosi added. On Wednesday night, the conservative House Freedom Caucus announced its opposition to the bill, saying that "growing the size of government by 13 percent is not what the voters sent us here to do".

So, if Pelosi is not organizing a Democratic revolt to shut down the government to give amnesty to illegal immigrants, what was she doing Wednesday? It became a huge PR issue when they booed her off stage and called her a "liar".

Pelosi said she opposed that the spending deal because it does not include a permanent solution for undocumented immigrants affected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme.

"Unlike in the Senate, there is no agreement that the House will even consider legislation to protect DREAMers", the email read. Mrs Pelosi said her support for a new bill-a $300bn spending deal cut by Democrats and Republicans in the Senate-was dependent upon Mr Ryan promising a vote to save the Dreamers.

The Dreamers, Pelosi told the House, "are all over our country, Mr. Speaker".

Pelosi, whose meager communication skills prompt many to underestimate her leadership skills, may not have an end game.

PAUL RYAN: My commitment to working together on an immigration measure that we can make law is a honest commitment.

"No, I'm just telling people why I'm voting the way I'm voting", Pelosi told reporters.

USA politician Nancy Pelosi delivered an eight-hour "filibuster" to call for a vote on protecting "Dreamer" immigrants facing the threat of deportation. President Trump announced past year that he would end the program, leaving DACA recipients - often called Dreamers - in limbo as the program is set to expire. And she was using everything she knows about the rules of the House to do so.

Still, Pelosi indicated she wouldn't be formally whipping her members against the bill Thursday morning.

"We've laid out what we would like to see in immigration legislation and I think it's something Nancy Pelosi should support and hopefully she'll come on board", Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during a White House briefing Wednesday. So, to recap - a person who is not in line with the rest of his party's leadership, who is very likely no longer answerable to the people, who commands enormous power in the largest governing body in the United States and arguably the one most directly representative of the people's intention, is directly betraying that intention in order to engage in what could be a final months-long exercise in borderline tyranny.
