NJ dreamer's story told by Pelosi during marathon DACA speech

Nancy Pelosi Paul Ryan

The country "can secure the border and if you're not a criminal, we should work on getting you into the country".

Since there are no filibusters in the House of Representatives, Pelosi used the magic minute to pressure her colleagues to reach an agreement for recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

The measure would not provide a fix for undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S.as children. The DACA program is set to expire next month.

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

"His holiness goes on to say, 'Sometimes it's hard to define what justice is, but in doing so we must beware of the dazzling blindness of power and special interests", Pelosi added.

The 77-year-old's supporters took to Twitter, using the hashtag #GoNancyGo to support her efforts.

'And I said it once and I'll say it again: We will bring a DACA solution to the floor'. "Without [DACA], I wouldn't be able to enroll for dual credit classes (classes that earn high school and college credits) that I was completely qualified for".

Passenger plane with 71 on board crashes in Moscow
According to another news agency, the jet vanished from radar screens two minutes after it left Domodedovo Airport. Authorities spotted the plane's wreckage in a field outside Moscow, the RIA Novosti news agency said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a Democrat, unveiled the latest plan Wednesday.

The package would also keep the government funded for six weeks to give appropriators enough time to write spending bills for the rest of the year. But she did not appear to be pushing other Democrats to back her, saying: "Members will do what they'll do".

Government funding will lapse for the second time in less than a month if Congress can not pass a funding bill by midnight Thursday. Let us thank and acknowledge the Dreamers for their courage, their optimism, their inspiration to make America more American.

The Senate and the House were both expected to vote on the proposed deal on Thursday. The 77-year-old House Minority Leader took to the floor on Wednesday morning to speak in support of undocumented migrants who arrived in the USA as children.

The "DACA-buster" refused to allow those people and their stories to fade as Congress prepares to vote Thursday on a long-term budget deal that has become ingrained with the immigration debate.

"But on Nancy Pelosi's terms, that is not going to happen, no matter how long she stands on the House floor and speaks".

Tasneem Al-michael, another DACA recipient who was brought to the US from Brunei when he was 9 months old, said he didn't learn of his immigration status until he was 16.
