Congress shifts to brutal immigration fight after ending another shutdown

Congress shifts to brutal immigration fight after ending another shutdown

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) used her "leadership minute" today to lauch a filibuster-style speech on the House floor, shown on C-SPAN, that called for House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) to hold a vote on legislation to protect the almost 800,000 undocumented immigrants under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. When 5 p.m. rolled around, the House minority leader had been speaking for some eight hours, but it wasn't just the record-setting length of her speech that captured the country's attention - it was also her shoes.

Pelosi said she would oppose the deal unless House Speaker Paul Ryan gave assurances he would bring immigration legislation to the floor for a vote.

'And she wasn't wearing these kinds of shoes, ' he chuckled, showing the press corps one of his more comfortable loafers.

Gutierrez then said Democrats who vote for this budget proposal ought to prepare for when Republicans "come after" gay people and Muslims next. The Senate planned to hold votes in the middle of the night and send the budget deal and temporary spending measure over the House by dawn. And a Pelosi aide confirmed "there's a whip". And they probably suspect that Pelosi wouldn't mind seeing the compromise pass, then fighting for the Dreamers in the next round, despite the damage done in the meantime.

Democrats also may have some Republican supporters in the House to pressure Ryan.

"The difference is that the tax reform allows us to potentially create enough revenue that compensates for the trillion, trillion and a half", Walker responded when asked how he justified supporting one but not the other.

"We will effectively shut down the federal government for no good reason", said Sen.

Ryan said again Thursday he was determined to bring an immigration bill to the floor this year - albeit only one that has Trump's blessing.

"We are not advocating for the shutdown", she said, adding that if there were a shutdown, it would be the Democrats' fault even though the GOP controls all three branches of the federal government. The office of the House historian confirmed it was the longest continuous speech in the chamber on record. "I have to build a wall.'" So it wasn't a sign of weakness when Pelosi voted for it in 2006? They are a hangover from a failed 2011 budget agreement and have led to military readiness problems and caused hardship at domestic agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency and the IRS. She's trying to force Speaker Ryan into committing to vote an on an immigration bill. Her stand threatened to upend the budget deal by saying she would vote no. But she could speak for as long as she wants.

Although Ryan publicly stressed his "commitment to working on immigration is a honest commitment", Kildee isn't buying it and blasted the speaker and President Trump's trustworthiness. Both the priest and the Levite ignored the wounded man and simply passed by him to get to where they needed to go. Although it remains to be heard whether the shoes were a deliberate choice, her footwear comes in stark contrast to the bright pink Mizuno sneakers former Texas state senator Wendy Davis wore at a 2013 filibuster that lasted 13 hours.

At the same time, McConnell was on the floor, House Speaker Paul Ryan was telling his members behind closed doors that the agreement has been reached, according to a member in the room. Luis V. Gutiérrez said. Red-state Democrats running for reelection in 2018 are sniping and the Twitterverse cares more about a domestic abuser on the White House staff than immigration politics. "I didn't come up here to be liked", he said.
