Nancy Pelosi Says She Won't Support Budget Deal Without Immigration Promise

Social media users appreciated her effort, starting the trend #GoNancyGo.

A source told CNN that Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer worked on the spending deal for weeks - and didn't include any other House Democrats in negotiations - and then she turned around and rejected it.

"I have no intention of yielding back", she said at 3:41 p.m. when she inquired about the House schedule. She began speaking at about 10 a.m. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) wondered.

House rules allow the minority leader to speak as long as needed.

Pelosi's spokesperson Drew Hammill responded to Strong, saying, "Speaker Ryan needs to make a real commitment to act and stop hiding behind the President".

The Senate and the House were both expected to vote on the proposed deal on Thursday.

There's no doubt that Pelosi is a progressive figure that Republicans - and even some Democrats - like to use as a political punching bag. It became a huge PR issue when they booed her off stage and called her a "liar".

Democrats on the left, especially members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, were frustrated to see a budget deal negotiated that resolved virtually every Democratic priority except a resolution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, a policy that protected young undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children that President Donald Trump chose to terminate in September.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi read letters from "Dreamer" immigrants whose protection from deportation ends next month.

But Pelosi's marathon floor speech was not accompanied by a vigorous whipping campaign to unite Democrats against the bipartisan compromise that Senate leaders, the White House, and House Speaker Paul Ryan have coalesced around to keep the government open beyond the deadline at the end of Thursday. Though Pelosi voted against the bill, 73 House Democrats supported it and government services were restored later Friday morning.

Pelosi wants something similar in the House, where the majority is not as accustomed to bending to the minority's demands.

If Congress doesn't pass a DACA plan, the program will expire on March 5.

The spending deal in question is one that Pelosi actually likes.

"I have plenty more stories to tell", she said.

Conway agreed, "that's right", noting that she wasn't sure "what [Pelosi] got out of it except a lot of criticism from Democratic members today and also from dreamers".

Both parties want to prevent deportations of the almost 700,000 immigrants who have lived in the US illegally as minors but now can work or attend school as young adults under DACA.

Pelosi was technically supposed to talk for one minute, but House leaders are granted leeway on how long their minute lasts.

SNELL: Yeah, absolutely. Over in the House, the conservative block is much bigger than it is in the Senate.

Ryan said that Democrats should acknowledge that "some people are going to get a little bump" from the Trump tax cut but that under a Democratic plan, "they'd be getting hundreds and hundreds more than under the Republican plan, and we would have been able to pay for it, by asking the wealthy and corporations to pay more".
