House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., set a record with an eight-hour speech in Congress Wednesday calling for a legislative solution to protect immigrants whose parents brought them to the United States illegally. Pelosi, 77, spent much of the marathon speech reading letters from immigrants whose protected status under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is set to expire next month. The future of DACA and other immigration reforms has become a bargaining chip in the budget battle in Congress.
