Democrats maneuver behind the scenes to secure amnesty provisions in Biden’s $3.5T spending bill
The first test for Democrats’ hopes of passing an amnesty for illegal immigrants lies in the Senate, where a little-known functionary will decide whether they will be able to skirt long-standing filibuster rules and attach their plan to the $3.5 trillion budget package.
Top aides to Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, have privately presented arguments to Elizabeth MacDonough, the chamber’s parliamentarian, as to why legalizing illegal immigrants is a valid exercise of what’s known in Washington as “budget reconciliation.”
The process allows measures that deal with spending, revenue and the federal debt limit to avoid the Senate’s 60-vote filibuster threshold and pass via a simple majority.
Senate Democrats argue that legalizing 8 million migrants would make them automatically eligible for federal benefits, which would deeply impact the federal budget. That’s one of the key tests for shoehorning policies into the reconciliation process.
“A pathway to citizenship is compatible with reconciliation,” said a senior Democratic aide, who requested anonymity to discuss the behind-the-scenes maneuvering. “The act of adding people, many of whom already pay taxes, to the federal rolls will have an immediate and direct impact on the budget.”
An immigration lawyer by training, Ms. MacDonough has served as the Senate’s parliamentarian since 2012. As the parliamentarian, she is tasked with interpreting whether legislative actions are permissible under the Senate’s long-standing rules and precedents. --->READ MORE HERE
Democrats Planning to Ram Through Amnesty for Eight Million Illegal Immigrants With 50 Votes Through Budget:
As establishment media frames congressional debate regarding Biden’s multi-billion spending bill around the price tag, Democrats are stealthily moving to provide citizenship to eight million illegal immigrants in the act through the use of budget reconciliation.
The planned amnesty provision for Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ social program spending package would grant any illegal immigrant termed an ‘essential worker’ present in the country before 2020 eventual citizenship, on the condition of checking off the appropriate paperwork and refraining from further criminal activity. Estimates of the demographic the amnesty would entail are as many as eight million.
House Democrats are currently awaiting a ruling from the Senate Parliamentarian on the legality of including mass amnesty for illegal immigrations in the law, which Democrats intend to pass as an annual budget. Using a legislative rule known as budget reconciliation, the Senate can pass a budget with 50 votes as opposed to the usual 60, allowing Democrats to ram through amnesty without the traditional legislative safeguards intended to avert such an action. --->READ MORE HERE
