Democrats tried to put amnesty and citizenship in a reconciliation bill for millions of illegal aliens. Their first plan didn’t work so they went back with Plan B.
Plan B was to change the date of when illegal aliens within the US can apply for legal status to 2010. It’s currently pre-1972.
Elizabeth McDonough, the Senate Parliamentarian, rejected the Plan. McDonough said the Plan was a non-starter. Democrats are now looking for other plans to get around the law and cancel the voice of half the nation.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said he was “disappointed” in the ruling and that it left them with “limited” options.
“[But] it still involved legal permanent residency we knew we still have a real challenge,” Durbin said about the push to get a change in the registry date.
Democrats initially pitched MacDonough on using their spending bill to provide 8 million green cards to immigrants in four groups: Dreamers, temporary protected status (TPS) holders, agricultural, and other essential workers. But she rejected that earlier this month saying that it was “not appropriate” for reconciliation, the budget process Democrats are using to bypass the filibuster on their spending bill.
It would probably take in tens of millions of illegals, although they claim it will include 8 million.
Democrats then went to Plan B, but they’re not done.
