After a 7 + hour filibuster-style speech on the floor of the House in support of DACA recipients failed to avert a spending bill's passage on Wednesday, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi helped craft compromise legislation Friday to extend CHIP benefits for ten years.

While the Democrats remain in the minority in all branches of the federal government, the move angered those on the left increasingly frustrated that Democratic rhetoric isn't matching action when it comes to the Dreamers.
