Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., said she plans to directly confront House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., over her days-long public clash with the four prominent progressive freshmen members of Congress known as "the squad."

Pelosi defended her scolding of Ocasio-Cortez and said she was doing her job as leader of the party by dressing down one of New York Democrat's staff for a tweet that essentially referred to some Democratic lawmakers as segregationists. Also, the British navy says Iran tried to interfere with a British tanker in the Persian Gulf. "I addressed that." She also added that she would continue to have a dialogue about this issue appropriately.

Still, Ocasio-Cortez's words leave the impression that the disagreements are beginning to lead to poor optics: the leader of the establishment being "outright disrespectful" to neophyte women of color from working-class backgrounds trying to challenge the status quo.

Although Pelosi appeared intent on refocusing the party's attention on Thursday, Jayapal said Ocasio-Cortez's accusation that Pelosi works to "diminish progressive power" in the caucus struck a chord for her.

Moderate members argued that it was important to pass a Senate version of the legislation when it appeared that the upper chamber would refuse to take up the House bill, while progressives railed against the process and insisted that lawmakers were not doing enough to negotiate for and ensure adequate protections for migrant children detained at the border.

"I did see that she said that, and I actually want to go talk to her about that", Bass said, adding, I don't believe that that's the correct".

"She got it right", Kudlow told reporters at the White House later on Thursday.

"This bill - opposed by the Hispanic Caucus and almost 100 Democratic members of the House - will not stop the Trump administration's chaos and cruelty", the Hispanic Caucus said in a statement provided by the Times. "I feel like we are at a very, it's a very qualified and supported position, at least in terms of evidence, and in terms of being able to make the argument, that we never should've created DHS in the early 2000s", Ocasio-Cortez said. I certainly know that she has been critical of some women of color. "I think the African-American community deserves an apology for that". We respect the value of every member of our caucus. "Let's rally around the Speaker", Khanna said on Thursday.

Wisconsin Rep. Mark Pocan, a co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive caucus, said on Thursday that he and Washington Rep. Pramila Jayapal, another co-chair, are setting up a meeting with Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland.

A short time later, Pelosi marched her caucus members into a closed room to chide them for "tweeting about other members", the report said. But I do think if we don't have progress on racial justice it will be because of the new Dems and blue dogs. I agree with the Speaker.
