Routine vote nearly forces House to relive Pelosi's marathon speech

Nancy Pelosi has been telling DREAMer stories for 7 hours. And she's still talking Pelosi Makes Epic, Hours Long Speech For DACA
| 09 February, 2018, 08:48

But any bill negotiated in the Senate is likely to face a tough road to passage in the U.S. House of Representatives, where there is no guarantee that legislation will be brought to the House floor.

Should Pelosi fail to unify House Democrats against the deal, he added, "it's going to be another strike against her effectiveness as leader of the caucus".

Her rationale may have gotten lost in the stream of accolades to Dreamers who attend college, who provide relief in natural disasters and who generally make fine Americans of themselves.

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer urged Democrats to vote no on the budget deal slated for a vote on the House floor late Thursday.

Pelosi took to the floor to lodge a protest to the budget deal reached by Senate leaders earlier on Wednesday, which included no action on DACA. It raises domestic spending in conjunction with defense spending and finances health care for children.

McConnell had previously agreed to allow a debate on immigration in the Senate.

Speaker Paul Ryan still maintains that he will not hold a debate or vote on immigration reform within the House unless the discussed plan is approved by the president.


In interviews will almost a dozen House Democrats, many who requested anonymity to speak candidly, several called the speech an attempt by Pelosi to shore up support with the progressive base angry by congressional inaction on Dreamers.

"I think we've made clear that the budget deal should be a budget deal, and that members of Congress, like Nancy Pelosi, should not hold our military hostage over a separate issue".

Shutting down the government comes with its own political risks, but Democrats' failing to keep their promise to force a solution for the hundreds of thousands of Dreamers could make the 2018 midterms more hard as the party works to regain control of the House. Some Republicans also oppose cuts to legal immigration. Their status has been in jeopardy since the Trump administration announced in September it would end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, the Obama-era initiative that has protected almost 800,000 of them from deportation. If it passes the House, it will go to Trump's desk to be signed. Indeed, Trump's path to his party's nomination in 2016 was paved by Republican invective in the House.

"[Pelosi] said she demanded certain things and walked away with none of them", Conway said.

A court order has, for now, eased the threat to the roughly 700,000 Dreamers who are registered with the government.

Pelosi's performance had no immediate impact on Republican leaders, who have not scheduled a vote on the issue. They will make their voices heard. That prompted House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to ask, "I don't understand". In 2009 John Boehner, then Republican leader, caused a stir when his "fila-Boehner" against a climate change bill lasted for more than an hour. On Thursday she confirmed that she still stands by that strategy. While it's unclear now whether enough of her party will take a similar stance and force the issue as well, Pelosi showed the country that some within the party are still willing to fight.
