Why Pelosi Is Rolling the Dice for Dreamers

09 February, 2018, 08:45 | Author: Dave Hampton
  • Nancy Pelosi has been telling DREAMer stories for 7 hours. And she's still talking

Having originally refused to agree to any spending deal until there was a legislative fix for DACA, Mrs Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader in the Senate, enraged the Democrats' progressive caucuses when they abandoned that strategy in January.

Senate Democrats appear to have little appetite for another shutdown, but on Tuesday Trump said he would welcome another shutdown if they refused to yield to his hardline demands on immigration.

Under DACA, hundreds of thousands of Dreamers were protected from deportation.

Today, Pelosi said she and other prominent Dems will not vote for a budget legislation that does not extend help to Dreamers and has been reading aloud from letters written by several DACA recipients as she holds the floor.

House Speaker Paul Ryan "has already repeatedly stated we intend to do a DACA and immigration reform bill - one that the president supports", said AshLee Strong, a spokeswoman for the Wisconsin Republican.

Pelosi read another letter from Jirayut New Latthivongskorn who said his parents brought him to the US from Thailand when he was nine years old. Nancy Pelosi wanted to make a big show about DACA ahead of the midterm elections, but when asked about actual solutions... all she had was a dirty look.

We knew, but we didn't really know until Jenner announced the birth over the weekend. Jenner also posted an 11-minute documentary on YouTube , titled " To Our Daughter ".

"I have no intention of yielding back", Pelosi said after being handed a note about five hours into her speech saying a vote would take place once she gave up the floor. Eastern time. "Why are we here if not to protect the patriotic young people who are determined to contribute and to strengthen America?"

House Democrats changed plans for their scheduled retreat in Cambridge, Md. this week to stay in D.C. and be on hand for the debate. On February 8th, as the House prepared to vote on the bill, she said she would not push Democrats to vote against it.

But Pelosi and Democrats are anxious he won't bring an immigration bill to the floor even if it passes the Senate, especially if it doesn't include everything the president wants, like funding for a border wall.

During the eight hour speech, Pelosi told stories of young undocumented immigrants pleading for legal status to remain in the country.

In addition, the budget deal is focused on lifting budget caps in order to provide $659 billion for the Pentagon.

While she could not confirm the brand of the black suede pointy-toed pumps, Taylor Griffin, press secretary for Pelosi, did confirm to Yahoo Lifestyle exclusively that they were as high as they looked: 4 inches.

National Signing Day 2018
Over 100 local football players attended the National Football Foundation's signing day breakfast at Norwood Hills Country Club. The son of the former National Football League player by the same name was considered the top unsigned prospect left to commit.

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.

She got a standing ovation from Democratic colleagues when she was done.

"I think in the end it's the only game in town", said Senator John Thune of South Dakota, the No. 3 Republican.

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

Just stop and think about this: Ironically and outrageously, Pelosi exploited this special privilege to set a record in representing the interests of non-citizen illegal aliens rather than the rights of American citizens she was elected to represent. Her parents, she said, did not report the crime because they were afraid of being deported.
