Citizenship or else: Activists warn Dems over amnesty for illegal immigrants:
As Democrats reach to finalize President Biden’s budget, immigration activists are warning they will not be left behind, demanding that a clear pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants be part of the bill.
The League of United Latin American Citizens said President Biden has promised citizenship rights and anything less than that “is no deal.” LULAC warned of electoral misfortune should Democrats fall short.
“Ignoring our outcry for justice is not acceptable. The Administration should be prepared to face the anger and disappointment of millions of Latinos and the consequences in 2022, which is not far away,” said Domingo Garcia, the group’s national president. “No more empty promises.”
The warning comes as Democrats struggle to figure out what is possible in the massive overhaul of the country’s social welfare programs. Its price tag already has been cut from $3.5 trillion to no more than $2 trillion, and Mr. Biden has seen his plans to tackle climate change in the bill upended. --->READ MORE HERE

Top Dem Senator Shares Third Attempt to Nest Amnesty for Millions of Illegal Immigrants in Reconciliation Bill:
On Wednesday Democratic senator Bob Menendez shared the third proposal under his party’s consideration to nest amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants in the budget reconciliation bill pending in the chamber after earlier attempts failed.
Democrats have tried a few angles to incorporate an amnesty provision into the reconciliation package, the first two of which Senate parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough rejected. She denied the first proposal to provide a pathway to citizenship for certain groups of illegal aliens, arguing that it is a “tremendous and enduring policy change that dwarfs its budgetary impact.”
MacDonough also dismissed the second plan, which involved modifying an immigration registry that outlines a process for immigrants who have resided in the U.S. since before January 1, 1972, to apply for a green card. Democrats asked to change the immigration registry date to 2010, to make a total of 6.7 million people eligible for permanent residency.
Menendez told Axios on Wednesday that the Democrats have moved on to “Plan C,” which would expand temporary legal status and work permits. --->READ MORE HERE
