Breaking: Nancy Pelosi Filibuster

By: Benjamin Gramley, SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) The house is currently under a filibuster by Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi.

Pelosi has been speaking for over a half hour in an attempt to try and hinder the passage of the Senate’s budget deal, until a law is passed protecting “Dreamers”.

This filibuster may also hurt bipartisan efforts to prevent a government shutdown starting on Thursday.

Here is a link to CSPAN’s live coverage of Pelosi’s speech.

Update: 1:52 PM

Both minority leader Chuck Schumer, and majority leader Mitch McConnell have come to an agreement on the budget, the 2-year deal fails to mention anything about DACA, or “Dreamers,” however.
