Conway Mocks Pelosi's Decision to 'Grandstand and Showboat' on DACA

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.

But surveying the landscape, she may have concluded that she needs a clear statement of priorities right now more than a strategy. It takes no action on DACA whatsoever. Pelosi asked. "Will we be a better country if we tear apart American families?" Ms. Pelosi does not agree. We've got Alyssa Milano, RuPaul and other stars cheering her on.

Although Republicans have a 238 to 193 majority in the House, the Freedom Caucus, which numbers about three dozen Republicans, announced they would oppose the accord. That is a very formidable arsenal. Elizabeth Warren, Ryan wisely chose to let his colleague hold the floor.

Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi just gave a speech on the House floor that lasted seven hours, but what is scarcely being reported is what she actually talked about. She also included remarks about the Declaration of Independence, the country's founders. "We've laid out what we would like to see in immigration legislation, and I think it's something that Nancy Pelosi should support", Sanders said.

"I have plenty more stories to tell", she said.

No issue is more important to the Democratic Party's most passionate voters, who insist their party must reject any budget deal that doesn't protect the young immigrants - even if it means risking a second government shutdown this year.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi wants Speaker Paul Ryan to make her the same promise Mitch McConnell made Senate Democrats two weeks ago: a guaranteed vote on an immigration bill that addresses the almost 700,000 undocumented immigrants protected under the sunsetting Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

When Pelosi finished, around 50 Democrats responded with a standing ovation, high-fives, hugs and kisses.

Pelosi opposed the spending deal since it doesn't include a permanent solution for undocumented immigrants affected by the DACA program.

It is unclear whether the liberal outrage will sink the two-year budget deal unveiled on Wednesday that would provide Pentagon and domestic programmes with huge spending increases. The agreement also includes aid to respond to recent natural disasters. The House, meanwhile, passed a short-term bill on Tuesday that would extend funding for the government until March 23, but it is expected to be altered in the Senate ahead of a Thursday deadline.

They were previously protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) scheme, which is being ended by President Donald Trump. There's no sign indication from congressional negotiators that that will be the case. "After election day I wondered if this dream would soon end, it's been a hard reality check that privileges could be taken away", her letter said. "We can get this budget deal done and then we can focus on getting this immigration deal done". She still had stories to tell.
