Pressure grows on Paul Ryan to commit to immigration debate

Pressure grows on Paul Ryan to commit to immigration debate Pressure grows on Paul Ryan to commit to immigration debate
Patty Aguilar | 10 February, 2018, 03:32

She yielded the floor at 6:11 p.m., precisely eight hours and seven minutes after she began.

She also said Thursday she's not whipping votes against the deal.

House members are usually only given one minute to make remarks but Pelosi used her unlimited, "magic" minute, available only to party leaders to tell stories of those who aspire to become US citizens.

Leader Pelosi today announced her intention to vote against any deal that doesn't include a solution for Dreamers.

The House historian's office said in a statement that Pelosi's speech was the longest continuous one it was "able to find on short notice". That means the House was technically still debating the legislation, even though Pelosi spent her time speaking about immigration.

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". "So I'm going to go on as long as my leadership minute allows".

As minority leader, Pelosi can speak uninterrupted on the House floor.

DACA, Alvarado said in her letter, opened the door for her.

She spoke as liberal activists protested that many Democrats were moving to leave Dreamer immigrants behind in grabbing the budget deal, a longstanding goal for the party.

At the White House, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the administration supports the Senate budget deal and does not agree with Pelosi's request to include immigration issues as part of the agreement.

"No, I think that we aren't using all the leverage we have and that's a disappointment and I won't support it", she said.

Student sexually assaulted in school, teacher held

House Speaker Paul Ryan said he will only bring an immigration bill to the floor on the condition it can be signed into law by Trump.

"I wonder what that was". They gave a standing ovation and high-fived her after she concluded her remarks. He went to the University of California - Berkeley but had to deny a scholarship that would have covered most of his tuition because of his immigration status.

"Will America be a stronger country if we deport him and others like him?"

At a news conference kicking off the retreat, Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., said that Democrats would tell voters that Republicans gave "the wealthiest corporations in the history of the world" permanent tax cuts, and gave middle- and working-class taxpayers "uncertainty".

"Let Congress work its will", Pelosi said.

The Senate's Republican and Democratic leaders unveiled a sweeping two-year budget agreement on Wednesday that would increase federal spending by more than $400 billion and could end the partisan spending stalemate that has consumed Congress for months.

But she demanded Ryan match Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's commitment to the Senate to open the upper chamber for free and clear debate on immigration.

"So why can't we have some sort of commitment on this side?"

Pelosi pointed to a bipartisan bill by Reps. Will Hurd, R-Texas, and Pete Aguilar, D-Calif., and said Ryan should start with that bill, "and any other bills he believes should be considered" through the Queen of the Hill process, where the measure with most votes becomes the prevailing bill to reconcile with what whatever immigration solution the Senate settles upon.

"Why should we in the House be treated in such a humiliating way when the Republican Senate leader has given that opportunity in a bipartisan way to his membership?"

"I support all of Nancy's efforts, and I hope that Speaker Ryan will rise to the same level of bipartisanship that Mitch McConnell did by offering us this floor procedure", he said. "What are you afraid of?" Pelosi said of Ryan. He served as Speaker of the House and unsuccessfully sought the democratic nomination for President in 1912.
