Senate Parliamentarian Crushes Democrat Amnesty for Illegal Aliens:
Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough has reportedly ruled that Democrats’ plan to slip a massive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens into a budget reconciliation package is outside the scope of budgetary matters, likely crushing the plan.
On Sunday evening, MacDonough ruled the amnesty plan can likely not be included in a budget reconciliation package — a filibuster-proof maneuver that only needs majority support in the Senate.
“Changing the law to clear the way to [lawful permanent resident] status is tremendous and enduring policy change that dwarfs its budgetary impact,” MacDonough wrote in her decision rejecting the amnesty’s inclusion.
As part of their $3.5 trillion budget, Democrats for months had hoped to slip an amnesty for illegal aliens enrolled and eligible for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, those employed on United States farms, those with Temporary Protected Status (TPS), and those deemed “essential workers.” --->READ MORE HERE
Dems can't include amnesty in reconciliation bill, parliamentarian rules:
The Senate parliamentarian has issued a ruling saying that provisions giving an estimated 8 million illegal immigrants and non-citizens legal permanent resident status and a pathway to citizenship could not be included in Democrats’ go-it-alone “Build Back Better” budget reconciliation legislation.
In her ruling on Sunday, Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough, who previously worked for the Department of Justice handling immigration cases, said that “the policy changes of this proposal far outweigh the budgetary impact scored to it and it is not appropriate for inclusion in reconciliation.”
Democrats are utilizing the budget reconciliation process to try to push through a planned $3.5 trillion worth of social and environmental programs. The process allows them to bypass the need to gain support from at least 10 Senate Republicans due to filibuster rules.
But bills in that process are not allowed to concern measures “extraneous” to the budget. --->READ MORE HERE
