U.S. House Democrats nominate Pelosi to be next speaker

U.S. House Democrats nominate Pelosi to be next speaker U.S. House of Representatives Democrats voted on Wednesday to nominate Nancy Pelosi to be the next speaker of the chamber. Pelosi, 78, who held the speakership from January 2007 to January 2011 and currently is House Democratic leader, still must be formally elected in early January in a vote by the entire House. A small group of Democrats have been maneuvering to deny her a victory in that vote. Democrats' wins in this month's congressional elections gave them a majority in the House over Republicans, who maintained their majority in the Senate.

Any deal must also end so-called chain migration, which allows legal immigrants to bring family members into the country, and the diversity He said that in addition to replacing DACA , the White House is willing to consider expanding it to cover more immigrants in exchange for those changes.

US President Donald Trump has denied reaching a deal which would see young immigrants protected from deportation without his proposed border wall as a condition. No deal was made last night on DACA . Massive border security would have to be agreed to in exchange for consent.

Speaking to reporters, the likely next House speaker said DACA — the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program giving a deportation reprieve to some immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children, and now is at the center of a legal fight — and the border wall are “two different subjects.”

She said she wouldn't back a DACA deal in order to fund a wall along the United States’ southern border with Mexico.

Pelosi spoke to reporters shortly before the House approved a short-term spending bill to avoid a partial government shutdown. Known as a “CR” or “Continuing Resolution,” the measure re-ups all money for the seven remaining spending bills at current levels through Dec. 21. The measure now goes to the Senate for approval.

But the disagreement over border wall funding, which is at the center of the budget gridlock, has yet to be resolved.

The California lawmaker’s comments come after she released a statement pledging to pass legislation that would put so-called Dreamers — beneficiaries of the DACA plan — on a path to citizenship when Democrats take control of the lower chamber of Congress in January.

“Our House Democratic Majority will once again pass the Dream Act to end the uncertainty and fear inflicted on patriotic young men and women across the country,” Pelosi said in her statement on Saturday. “Of course, we will meet our responsibility to provide strong, smart border security that serves our country’s needs, is consistent with our values, and doesn’t squander billions of dollars on a border wall."

DACA allows children brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents to apply for a renewable two-year deferral from deportation and to become eligible for a work permit. It has been one of the most hotly contested issues in the immigration debate since it was announced eight years ago.

The Trump administration announced in September of last year plans to end the program and gave Congress six months to pass the so-called DREAM Act, which has been batted around in Congress since 2001 and would provide a path to citizenship for the 700,000 DACA recipients. A prolonged court battle, however, has kept the program alive.

Democratic lawmakers in the House have urged Pelosi to schedule a vote on legislation to protect DACA and immigrants with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) within the first 100 days of the 116th Congress. TPS is a program that allows certain immigrants who have fled armed conflicts or natural disasters — such as those from El Salvador and Haiti – to live and work in the U.S. for a limited time.

“We will protect TPS recipients and those fleeing unimaginable violence,” Pelosi said.

California Rep. Nancy Pelosi and fellow Democrats who have tried thwarting her drive to become House speaker seem near an accord that would all but assure she wins the post in the next Congress. Democratic aides say Pelosi and lawmakers who'd tried blocking her were in agreement that she and other current party leaders would be limited to no more than two additional two-year terms in their posts.
