The Latest White House praises Senate budget deal

After the vote, Pelosi vowed that the fight to protect undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children from deportation was not over. "I'm going to take everything she says at face value", said Democrat Luis Gutierrez.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's all-day speech broke a record for longest-continuous speech in House history.

"I will not vote for it".

"Therefore, 40 hours is a Catholic devotion that many of us grew up with and we have that same 40 hours - from 8:00 this morning until tomorrow night at midnight - to be prayerful", she continued.

The White House backed the deal - despite President Donald Trump's outburst a day earlier that he'd welcome a government shutdown if Democrats didn't accept his immigration-limiting proposals. All Pelosi was doing was signaling that those votes might not be available unless Ryan gives something in return - and that just as he is catering to those Republicans who are most strongly against immigration, she has similar constraints on her side of the aisle. The legislation has over 200 cosponsors and is supported by a number of Republicans.

Pelosi started speaking at 10:04 a.m. and stopped shortly after 6 p.m.

When it comes to congressional bloviating, the place to be is the U.S. Senate, with its hallowed (if recently restricted) tradition of "filibusters", long speeches exploiting Senate rules to block or delay votes, usually to thwart the will of the majority party.

"We have a moral responsibility to act now", she said.

Pelosi's instincts and skills were honed in the living room of 245 Albemarle Baltimore, where the youngest of six and only daughter of Mayor Tom D'Alesandro Jr., learned to count votes by precinct and helped manage the "favor file", keeping track of those from whom reciprocation might be asked someday.

President Trump explains why he won't declassify Democrats' memo

"The parable of the good Samaritan is one that has been used over and over again to welcome strangers", she added. "Samaritans were not friends to the person the Samaritan saved. But he was a man of justice".

Pelosi read heart-rending testimonies from Dreamers who had written their representatives about their lives. She called it a "diversionary tactic".

"There is probably a lot of blame to go around for the Republicans who are advocating for this debt", Paul said to CNN's Erin Burnett OutFront.

And remember when they showed that a person was "out of touch"? "They've spoken out in a courageous way". Her speech explained why. "Second, Trump just offered three times as many people as Barack Obama ever dreamed of".

Senate leader had celebrated the budget deal a sign they had left behind some of their chronic dysfunction. Elizabeth Warren, Ryan wisely chose to let his colleague hold the floor.

"If I'm the leader of the Democrats and I say, 'You know, that committee assignment is very important, ' and the DCCC money", Gutiérrez said.

Of course, it is not entirely clear what the president will demand in an immigration bill. She called it lame, she called it risky. His proposal also called for a massive increase in border security. "I think it's insignificant".

And make no mistake, Democrats were willing participants in this.

Paul took to the Senate floor many times Thursday refusing to agree to move up the time for a vote in the chamber on the bill, which requires unanimous consent from all 100 senators. "But the amusing thing is you know so often in the media we hear 'we want you to work together.' They are are working together but working together to spend a ton of money". But I still don't see many flaws in what Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are doing.
