There is only one thing that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi seems good at, and that’s her incessant talking. Her talking doesn’t always make sense like the time she said they needed to pass the Affordable Care Act in order find out what’s in it or the time she said that Barack Obama has never done anything for political reasons.
Yesterday, Pelosi took control of the House floor trying to force a vote on some type of protection for DACA illegals. She spoke non-stop for over 8 hours, a feat easy for her, but the vote on DACA protection never happened.
(The Hill) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday commandeered the House floor to deliver a marathon monologue designed to secure protections for young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.
In a record-breaking eight-hour, seven-minute speech featuring prayers, Bible passages and testimonials from “Dreamers,” Pelosi vowed to oppose a sweeping, two-year budget package — a deal she herself helped to negotiate — unless Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) pledges to consider legislation shoring up the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which President Trump is sunsetting in less than a month.

It was also something else: a clear signal to Pelosi’s troops — some of them questioning her dedication to securing Dreamer protections — that she’s leading the fight on immigration head-first…
Pelosi and many of her Democratic colleagues continue to fight for DACA protection. She has indicated that she opposes the Senate budget bill because it has no provision for DACA illegals. She seems prepared to shut down the government and leave our military troops on the battle fields unpaid and without any death benefits because of her blind loyalty to DACA illegals.
