But it also came as her caucus began three days of closed-door meetings to craft a 2018 agenda that can win wider appeal in November's elections.

The California Democrat announced on the floor earlier in the day that she will oppose a budget deal negotiated between her Democratic counterpart, Sen.

But they have resisted President Trump's call for more border security and tighter immigration laws in exchange for putting 1.8 million Dreamers on a path to citizenship.

She called on House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to guarantee a vote on DREAMer legislation, as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., did in the Senate.

Democrats want legal status for Dreamers, who will lose protection when the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA expires March 5. The fate of people protected by the program has prolonged the spending debate for several months.

Later that month, on November 13, 2016 Page wrote, "I bought all the president's men". "This", Strzok wrote, "will never end". For his part, President Trump responded on Twitter to the newly released texts , describing them as "bombshells".

While Pelosi spoke, immigration activists rallied in Washington and threatened retribution against the congressional Democrats who abandoned the strategy of demanding that a budget accord be paired with an immigration deal. "Let Congress work its will".

One of the letters Pelosi read was from Gladys Klamka from Phillipsburg, N.J. Klamka said her parents brought her to the United States from Mexico when she was two years old and that they would have put her up for adoption if they stayed in Mexico.

"We're not going to bring immigration legislation through that the president doesn't support", Ryan told reporters at a Tuesday news conference. But when the debate might happen - and what kind of bill Trump can support - is still unclear.

On social media, many users pointed out that Ms Pelosi had not only spoken for many hours, but had done so while consuming only a little water - and wearing four-inch high heels. Members of the House only get a minute to make their comments - except party leaders like Pelosi, who get an unspecified amount of time. By the afternoon, Democrats had submitted hundreds of stories that staffers printed out and rushed to the floor.

After speaking for more than five hours, Pelosi was handed a note, saying it read "a vote will occur soon after I yield back".

Asian stocks plunge after bloodbath on Wall Street
The Dow Jones industrial average plunged more than 1,100 points Monday as stocks took their worst loss in six and a half years. The dollar was trading at 109.10 yen against 109.13 yen in NY , sharply lower than rates around 110 yen seen a day earlier.

At one point, perhaps running out of stories, she suggested she might turn to the Bible.

"You see, these people are being deported", Pelosi said around hour six.

The top Democrat in the US House of Representatives, minority leader Nancy Pelosi, has made history by delivering the longest address to the chamber for at least 108 years. "We're not certain that Clark held the record for the longest speech at the time, but it is the longest example we've been able to find on short notice". Party leaders recently agreed on a two-year spending bill, but it doesn't mention Dreamers.

At the White House, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the administration supports the Senate budget deal and does not agree with Pelosi's request to include immigration issues as part of the agreement. Absolutely. But it's not going to be all comprehensive. Trump has said that he would like to see a DACA fix, although such amnesty can not occur without border wall funding and other immigration reform priorities. In other words, she highlighted how important the issue is to the Democratic Party. Senate Democrats joined them in January, blocking a funding measure and forcing a government shutdown. Numerous so-called "dreamers" could lose protection from deportation - granted by the Obama administration in 2014 and rescinded by Trump last fall - in the coming weeks. "I believe we do".
