Pelosi Was Totally Enthused To Speak For Eight Hours On Dreamers

She cares more about illegal aliens than Americans

(CNN) House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi spoke for a little more than eight hours to oppose the budget deal to lift spending caps and avert a government shutdown — because the plan does not address immigration issues.

The House Historian’s office told CNN that Pelosi’s speech is the longest on record on the House floor, according to their records.

Pelosi started speaking shortly after 10 a.m. ET, and wrapped the speech a little after 6:10 p.m. ET.

“I have had the privilege of reading the testimony from Dreamers, I still have more,” she said, receiving applause in the chamber. “I thank all of you.”

Afterwards she sent this out

Do you know who truly matters? American citizens. People who are here lawfully. People who should be getting the jobs, rather than illegal aliens. People who should be getting money for college, rather than illegal aliens. People who should always come before illegal aliens.

She was apparently “filibustering” a bill she helped craft

Still, some viewed Pelosi’s gambit as window dressing for DACA. After all, Pelosi was purportedly part of the talks with other top House and Senate leaders.

“I don’t understand if you have four leaders agree to a bill why do you get to negotiate if you’re not going to vote for the bill?” asked House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.

Many Democrats thought it was a silly stunt

“There’s all kinds of ways, I assure you, that leadership exercises its influence — the least of which is a floor speech,” said Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.), an unabashed critic of leadership on immigration issues.

He’s one of the biggest supporters of criminal aliens.

In interviews will nearly a dozen House Democrats, many who requested anonymity to speak candidly, several called the speech an attempt by Pelosi to shore up support with the progressive base angry by congressional inaction on Dreamers. By agreeing to the spending caps deal, Gutiérrez and others argued, Democrats gave up all their leverage to force Republicans into serious negotiations to shield Dreamers from deportation. (snip)

Some centrist-minded Democrats said Pelosi’s daylong protest could — by calling attention to the failure to provide relief for Dreamers — make it that much harder for vulnerable members to vote for the budget deal.

“This stunt … had nothing to do with protecting vulnerable members who have to take a difficult vote,” said one moderate lawmaker who asked not to be named. “Working out this deal and then saying she’s not going to vote for it? Come on. She was at the table.”

If only Democrats cared as much about American citizens and our military as much as illegal aliens.
