Democrats Blocked From Introducing Amnesty Provisions In Budget Reconciliation

by Robin Hvidston

The Senate parliamentarian on Sunday rejected Democrats’ push to include a pathway to legal status in their social spending plan, a blow to the party’s efforts to enact immigration reform, as reported by FAIR.

The decision shuts down one path for moving forward toward the Democrat back amnesty provisions.

“We are in complete support of Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough who has ruled that the Democrats’ plan to include a massive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens into a budget reconciliation bill is outside the purview of the budget,” said Robin Hvidston, Executive Director of We The People Rising and CA State Coordinator of The Remembrance Project.

Members of We The People Rising have been contacting both the Senate and House of Representatives in strong opposition to the Democrat proposals.

In the decision, a copy of which was obtained by POLITICO, the parliamentarian determined that the Democrats’ proposal is “by any standard a broad, new immigration policy” and that the policy change “substantially outweighs the budgetary impact of that change.”

“Mass amnesty for millions isn’t a budgetary issue appropriate for reconciliation,” Hvidston said. “The checks and balances in our system have worked, and we applaud this action taken by the Senate Parliamentarian.”
