Senate budget plan averts shutdown, does nothing for DACA

A Tale Of Two Leaders

A Tale Of Two Leaders

"It's important to note that although Clark held the floor for the duration, he was repeatedly interrupted during his remarks", the House historian's office said in a statement. It was Trump who created the Dreamer crisis by rescinding President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the executive action that protected registered Dreamers from deportation and allowed them to work and go to school. There are committed liberals among Senate Democrats, but no Hispanic Caucus as in the House. And although some are calling it a filibuster, the House does not have an equivalent to that Senate stall tactic. "What's wrong? There's something wrong with this picture", Pelosi said.

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi wants Ryan to commit to holding an immigration vote under a rule known as "queen of the hill" that she argues would be fair to both sides, since multiple bills could get votes and the one with the most support above the simple majority threshold would prevail.

'I have had the privilege of reading the testimony from Dreamers, I still have more, ' Pelosi said. By the afternoon, Democrats had submitted hundreds of stories that staffers printed out and rushed to the floor.

During her marathon address, which clocked in at eight hours and seven minutes, Pelosi only consumed water and did not sit or take a single bathroom break.

"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", she said during the White House briefing Wednesday. At one point, she suggested lawmakers should "just pray all day". It suggests too that Mrs Pelosi's eyes are fixed more tightly on mid-terms in November than on immigration.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi made history Wednesday by delivering the longest floor speech in the chamber's history.

It would stave off a government shutdown ahead of a Thursday night deadline for a new short-term spending bill, and also extend the federal government's debt ceiling until March 2019, putting off for more than a year the risk of a debt default.

As far as anyone can tell, no House leader ever has done this before, so the dagger of Fck The Political Norms finally been turned in the other directions.

The 77-year-old's supporters took to Twitter, using the hashtag #GoNancyGo to support her efforts.

A bipartisan deal in the Senate to fund the government announced by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer achieves a couple of Democratic goals.

Leader Pelosi, House Democrats and the Republicans who say they stand with immigrant youth and the promise of Lady Liberty have a decision to make.

If passed, the bill would prevent a government shutdown that's scheduled for Thursday at midnight if Congress isn't able to pass a funding deal in time. "There's no guarantee. We'll have the debate". "And Republicans say 'never.' They say 'never'". Alvarado recently finished law school and passed the IL bar. A new Quinnipiac University poll, released Wednesday, found support for the tax cuts rising from 32 percent in January to 39 percent today, while Trump's approval had climbed from 36 to 40 percent. He has a lot of members of his own party in the House who are hard-liners.

Pelosi's goal was to help shed light on exactly why Democrats do not want to vote on the GOP's budget bill as-is.
