Reconciliation Immigration Plan Rejected

On September 29, the Senate Parliamentarian rejected the second attempt of Democrats to create the legalized pathway for undocumented immigrants. This was a bill that could only have been cleared with support from Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough.

The main purpose of this bill was meant to legalize millions of undocumented immigrants and provide them a path to citizenship. Democrats were questioned by the MacDonough to include timeline provisions between 1972 to 2010. This bill could also be cleared with the budgetary reconciliation.
This bill has faced quite a bit of argument; however, it is still a part of the economic agenda to substantially reform and provide clearance for the immigrant legalization bill during the first year of President Joe Biden’s presidency.

Democrats submitted the memo for the bill on Tuesday, September 28th, and were rejected again. The first amnesty that MacDonough rejected was on September 20. She is an official candidate to advise regarding the rules and protocols of the Senate and the precedents that should be worked on.

The rejection of immigrant legalization will is definitely a massive loss for the Democrats, especially because of the provision that they want to add. The democrats are still disappointed after the rejection of this second attempt. However, according to the sources, this is still part of the agenda, and Democrats will still put in the effort to get it cleared and provisioned. The ruling remarks could be a setback for parliamentarians to clear the Bill in the future.

Immigration advocacy groups are also disappointed because of the rejection of the bill. However, they are still hopeful about the attempt that could be made in the future accommodating the provision that the parliamentarian wants.

Plan C for the Democrats is to present a new proposal before MacDonough. Unlike the first two plans, the new proposal will not give undocumented immigrants a pathway to citizenship. If passed, the plan will protect over 8 million undocumented immigrants from deportation and will provide them with a work permit for 5 years.
