Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic leader in the House, went for a record yesterday when she stood on the floor for a full 8 hours reading personal letters from immigrants trying to convince the opposing Republicans to grant her a deal on DACA.

We do find the timing a bit odd given that every major news outlet ran with the story that ‘her time was almost up’ yesterday and secondly found it striking that she would stand for 8 hours trying to get protection for illegal immigrants (under the US constitution that is still what they are) whilst refusing a week earlier to rise out of her seat for President Trump’s State of the Union and clearly instructing her party to do the same.

Yes, the California Democrat took to the House floor at about 10:04 am Eastern time Wednesday and yielded at 6:11 pm trying to broker a deal for the 800k ‘dreamers’ whose protection is about to expire in less than a month from now.

At the same time that her Democratic colleague Mr. Schumer was agreeing to a budget deal with Republicans in the Senate, Ms. Pelosi stood up to speak against the Republican stubbornness to move an inch when it comes to DACA.

”This is not an issue that is going to go away,” she claimed.

“This is an American value that is deeply felt across the board.”

Meanwhile outside the hard left part of the Democratic party vowed to break away from them should no deal be made for the DACA Dreamers.

Ms. Linda Sarsour declared during a rally near Capitol Hill that: “I’m not a loyal Democrat. We will be joining primaries this year and we will primary Democrats who did not have the spine or the courage to stand up for our undocumented family.”
