On 7th Feb 2018, a political leader Nancy Pelosi spoke for a record 8-hours. She expressed her desire of taking up a bill'>bill(new law) on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program by lawmakers of United States of America . She included many stories from her life during her speech while trying to convince other leaders, in the US Senate.
Nancy Pelosi is an American politician. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an American immigration policy that allows some individuals, who illegally entered the USA while being minors, to receive a 2-year period of permission to work in the USA. Through DACA these people could legally become citizens of the US. As of 2017, approximately 800,000 individuals were enrolled in the program created by DACA. This policy was established by former US President Obama in June 2012 and was ended last year by the current US President Donald Trump. Pelosi tried hard to convince the leaders in favour of ending DACA program and to reconsider their decision. During this longest speech by any American politician since 1909, she told the stories of DREAMers and immigrants who are brought illegally and sometimes forcefully to the United States. Her main concern was that in the proposed budget'>budget, there was nothing for protections for such minors.
Nancy Pelosi is a powerful leader and the first woman in American history to lead a political party in Congress. In late 2010, Pelosi had led the Congress in passing child nutrition and food safety laws. The speech delivered by Nancy Pelosi is one of the most powerful speeches that has ever been made by any congresswoman till date. We hope it brings positive news for minors.
