Nancy Pelosi Presses Paul Ryan to Allow Full Immigration Debate in House

Democrats have said they would support border security in exchange for Dreamer protections ― some of them even saying they would allow for Trump's wall ― but draw the line on measures that would hurt asylum-seekers, including children.

"If a Dream Act were brought to the floor, it would pass immediately, with strong bipartisan support", Pelosi said Wednesday in a speech on the House floor.

Of course, filibustering is reserved typically for the Senate, and not allowed in the House, but since Pelosi is her party leader, she's allowed to speak for as long as she likes, and so has found the loophole. Some congressional negotiators also wanted to include a hike in the debt limit, which the U.S. is expected to hit next month, though the exact parameters were still being negotiated when the deal was announced.

"During the night when I was thinking and praying so hard about our 'Dreamers, ' I thought maybe we should just pray all day on the floor of Congress". "And Republicans say 'never.' They say 'never'".

Fiscal conservatives like the Freedom Caucus, have also indicated they will vote against the deal due to the increase in new government spending. "And I hope that does not happen", he continued.

The former basketball player made it look easy, as he became the first quarterback to pull in a reception in the Super Bowl . New England has also gotten a strong season from receiver Brandin Cook after acquiring him from New Orleans this offseason.

But others raised questions, asking, "What is our plan?" Pelosi asked. "Will we be a better country if we tear apart American families?" Both the Senate and the House will vote on the legislation later Thursday. The budget is potentially a huge win for Democrats, with an enormous boost to domestic spending in exchange for a boost to military spending. Pelosi said. "Give us a vote. It's not a situation where we can hold all our members". "Democrats should stop talking like this in public", he said. A total of 96 Republicans and 98 Democrats voted nay. "We're continuing to press to be sure that we have an opportunity to address the Dreamer issue".

"I don't think the unity will be there", Gutierrez said. "They've been enriched.by the greatness of our country".

"There's all kinds of ways, I assure you, that leadership exercises its influence - the least of which is a floor speech", he told Politico. "And we'll have to look at that in totality". Pro-immigration advocacy groups were sending similar messages to Democratic offices as well.

Ryan has said he wants a solution to the DACA problem. That bill also included a full-year of funding for defense spending. "For Democrats, the seriousness of your commitment to Dreamers will be revealed by this vote".
