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

"It's a much better deal than we had even a few weeks ago", said Ryan, alluding to the short-term spending agreement that ended a three-day government shutdown last 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.

"Without a commitment from Speaker Ryan comparable to the commitment from Leader McConnell, this package does not have my support", Pelosi added later in a statement. Pelosi has faced criticism from Dreamers and their advocates who say she and fellow Democrats have not pushed hard enough for a "clean" Dream Act - in other words, a Dream Act that would not include other immigration restrictions favored by Trump and Republicans. According to the House historian, she beat a record set by Representative Champ Clark of Missouri, who spoke for 5 hours and 15 minutes in 1909 to protest a tariff overhaul.

But he wanted the challenge and has been up for it, averaging 22.7 points and a league-leading 2.4 blocked shots per game. One issue that is unsettled in the wake of Porzingis' injury is the Knicks' plans to offer him a rookie extension.

The Democrats' leader in the Senate, Chuck Schumer, said: "The budget deal doesn't have everything Democrats want, it doesn't have everything Republicans want, but it has a great deal of what the American people want".

Where the House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi has been speaking for almost seven hours straight. Conservatives in the House are also expected to balk at a deal that raises spending by $300 billion over the next two years. "I have no intention of yielding back", Pelosi said at 3:41 p.m. "I don't know when we would have another opportunity that matches today". For eight hours and seven minutes, Pelosi would not allow her voice to be silenced and, in doing so, allowed the voice of 700,000 DACA recipients to be heard within the chamber.

"I would have gone to the bathroom well before then, I gotta tell you", he joked.

"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.

During the eight hour speech, Pelosi told stories of young undocumented immigrants pleading for legal status to remain in the country.

Ryan unsuccessfully challenged Pelosi for her post as the top Democrat in the House a little more than a year ago. "So we're not going to bring immigration legislation through that the president doesn't support".
