Article:

Nancy Pelosi called for a year-long resolution on funding for home security, rejecting a compromise on exchanging border-wall funding for a DACA solution. Pelosi, the House’s likely next speaker, called the construction of a border wall “immoral, ineffective, costly.”

WASHINGTON — Nancy Pelosi, who is set to become the next speaker of the House at the beginning of the new Congress in January, began negotiations that would include financing the long-awaited wall of President Donald Trump along the nearly 2,000-mile US-Mexico border.

Pelosi told reporters on Thursday that it was not on the table to pair wall funding with a permanent solution to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and that she would prefer Congress to pass a continuing resolution on home security before Christmas.
