Top US Democrat breaks record with eight-hour speech

They were previously protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) scheme, which is being ended by President Donald Trump.

"We know that we can't step back". Let us thank and acknowledge the Dreamers for their courage, their optimism, their inspiration to make America more American. The minority leader mentioned one DACA recipient named Javier, who didn't realize he was undocumented until he was applying for college.

US Senate leaders, in a rare bipartisan compromise, reached a deal on February 7 to raise spending on military and domestic programmes by nearly $300 billion over the next two years, but the agreement infuriated some fiscal conservatives. Trump gave Congress until 5 March to find a legislative solution.

Davila was one of the voices during the National Day of Action for a Clean Dream Act that brought together more than 10 organizations from Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Washington.

"I support getting DACA done too but people should vote for it based what's in the deal not what's not in the deal", he said.

She read the story of another, named Laura Alvarado, who was brought to the USA from Mexico when she was 8 years old.

She has asked Speaker Paul D. Ryan to commit to holding a vote under a House rule called "queen of the hill", but he has not obliged. "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".

Trump has said he will not entertain a DACA fix that doesn't include border security and funds for a $25 billion border wall.

GM, Ford miss out on tax benefit Trump hands to foreign foes
The crosstown rival's Q4 report almost two weeks ago showed a 7-percent EPS miss in spite of a 333-percent year-over-year gain. Standpoint Research upgraded Ford Motor from a "hold" rating to a "buy" rating in a research note on Wednesday, October 4th.

The latest deal still has to pass the House, however, and many Democrats are expected to oppose it as it does not contain specific protections for Dreamers. A Democrat win in the nationwide midterm elections to the House in November will return her to the Speakership, a post that is second in line of succession to the White House (after the vice-president).

"Our basic request is: Honor the House of Representatives". If Pelosi's stunt forces centrists to cover their political backsides and the budget deal fails for lack of Democratic support, suddenly Schumer and his very vulnerable colleagues in red states will get hammered over yet another shutdown on behalf of illegal immigrants.

A source close to the California Democrat told CNN she thought of the idea overnight to speak for hours on the House floor.

The DACA program was established in 2012 just a month after Latthivongskorn graduated from college with degrees in molecular and cellular biology, Pelosi said.

He added, "I would have gone to the bathroom well before then, I got to tell you".

"Our job, to me, seems pretty clear: We have to stand up for and protect the core values of this nation".

"I'm pleased with the product", she said.

On the other side of the chamber sat only Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, and two aides, seemingly waiting to seize the floor and begin debate on a home mortgage bill scheduled to be voted on later Wednesday.
