Pelosi-buster: House Democratic leader speaking non-stop for 6 hours demanding immigration vote
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has been holding the floor of the House of Representatives for more than six hours and counting Wednesday, in a marathon speech protesting a budget deal reached by Senate leaders.
In her remarks, Pelosi announced that she and many fellow House Democrats would oppose the package unless House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., promised to allow a vote on a plan to shield from deportation hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally.
"Let Congress work its will," said Pelosi, who noted that Senate Republicans have slated a debate on the politically freighted subject starting next week. "What are you afraid of?"
President Trump moved to end former President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program last year, giving Congress a March 5 deadline to pass legislation to replace it. However, a federal judge has indefinitely blocked Trump from terminating the program's protections, blunting the deadline's immediate impact.
