    Senate Parliamentarian Crushes Democrat Amnesty for Illegal Aliens

    Senate Parliamentarian Crushes Democrat Amnesty for Illegal Aliens

    by JOHN BINDER 19 Sep 2021

    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.

    News: The Senate parliamentarian has come down and it likely shuts down including a pathway to citizenship in reconciliation

    New - Senate parl ruling on immigration that appears to close the door on including a pathway to green cards in the reconciliation bill. Key line: “Changing the law to clear the way to LPR status is tremendous and enduring policy change that dwarfs its budgetary impact.”







    8:10 PM · Sep 19, 2021

    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.”

    In August, a budget resolution framework put forth by Democrats revealed the amnesty would
    cost American taxpayers at least $107 billion.

    All along, though, Democrats and President Joe Biden were relying on MacDonough to approve the amnesty’s inclusion in a reconciliation package because they lack the votes to pass the plan using standard House and Senate rules.

    Late last week, MacDonough
    heard arguments from Democrats as to why the amnesty should be included in a budget reconciliation package. Biden was relying on the inclusion of the amnesty plan to get across the finish line one of his top priorities for his voter base and the political establishment’s donor class.

    “I strongly support giving Dreamers, TPS recipients, farmworkers, and essential workers the long-awaited pathway to citizenship they deserve,” Biden
    said this past week in an address. “I’m working closely with Congress right now to finally make that a reality.”

    Particularly for the donor class, investors, and big business lobby, the amnesty would flood the U.S. labor market with millions of newly legalized foreign workers while
    shifting wealth to the nation’s coasts — a boon for blue states and blue cities.

    Already, current immigration levels put downward pressure on U.S. wages while
    redistributing about $500 billion in wealth away from America’s working and middle class, toward employers and new arrivals, research by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine has found.

    The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has repeatedly
    found that amnesty for illegal aliens would be a net fiscal drain for American taxpayers while driving down U.S. wages.

    Every year, 1.2 million legal immigrants receive green cards to permanently resettle in the U.S. In addition, 1.4 million foreign nationals are given visas to take American jobs while hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens enter the U.S. annually.
