The Senate parliamentarian ruled against allowing Democrats to include amnesty for an estimated 8 million illegals in their massive multi-trillion dollar social spending bill.
The massive bill has been labeled ‘human infrastructure’ because it has very little to do with the infrastructure of roads and bridges. It’s mostly a social safety net proposal aimed at pushing America into becoming a socialist country. Biden calls it a “bottom-up” transformative bill. Anyone who knows about economics would say this socialist agenda has and will never work. Biden calls himself a capitalist, but he is a capitalist in name only. He has sold out to the far-left socialists like Bernie Sanders.
Just days ago, Biden made an announcement of the plan:
“I strongly support giving Dreamers, TPS recipients, farmworkers, and essential workers the long-awaited pathway to citizenship they deserve. I’m working closely with Congress right now to finally make that a reality.”

Politico reports that 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.”
In their arguments before the Senate parliamentarian, a former immigration attorney, Democrats made the case that providing green cards to an estimated 8 million Dreamers, farmworkers, Temporary Protected Status recipients, and essential workers during the pandemic had a budgetary impact because it would make more people eligible for certain federal benefits.
