Democrats quietly scramble to include immigration provision in social spending bill


Over the last few months, Congress has seen lots of action (or inaction?) on immigration.  The nation learned that the Senate had a parliamentarian who could make rulings on what could be included in a budget reconciliation bill and who shot down a couple of proposals that would have regularized the immigration status of undocumented immigrants

It is a big week for the Biden presidency.  There continue to be rumblings, including in this Washington Post article, that there may be some immigration provisions in the President's social spending bill, which is one of the Biden administrat5ion's critical priorities..  As Laura L:tvan for Bloomberg reports, 

"Senate Democrats have abandoned plans to achieve a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants as part of President Joe Biden’s economic agenda, and instead are pursuing a proposal that would provide temporary deportation protections.

The measure would provide temporary immigration parole status to millions of undocumented immigrants, which would allow them to stay lawfully in the U.S. and to apply for work permits, said Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois, the No. 2 Democratic leader in that chamber."

Stay tuned.

Nice to know that Democrats' focus in the midst of all this misery is on helping, not Americans, but illegals. This latest amnesty--allowing illegals to stay and take American jobs and resources--will bring still more to the border, as Biden sets out a treasonous welcome mat.
