One million+ illegals crossing the border since January is not enough for Biden and his leftist friends. More Democrat voters are needed.
So why not add citizenship into their infrastructure bill ? They intend to pass it through reconciliation with no Republican votes.
Why not indeed.
Rules be damned. The Constitution be damned. Courts be damned. America be damned.
The Democrats need more voters!!
But what about the Senate Parliamentarian? It’ll be up to Elizabeth MacDonough to decide if citizenship can be added to the bill through the Senate rules. MacDonough serves at the pleasure of the Majority Leader and was appointed by previous Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
It remains to be seen if she’ll allow the new deviousness of the Democrats to prevail. And if the progressives think she won’t go along with the party line, should we expect Antifa and BLM to show up at her house for “peaceful protests”?
This new plan to ram citizenship for illegals through with reconciliation (although I’m sure in the works for a while) was brought up because Biden and the Democrats are upset that a Texas judge recently ordered them to stop taking applications for DACA .
Biden wasn’t very happy about it. Neither was VP Harris who tweeted “To all the Dreamers out there experiencing fear and uncertainty, know that @POTUS and I believe strongly that your home is America. You deserve a permanent solution. Through Reconciliation or other means, the time is now for Congress to provide a pathway to citizenship.”
Even the REAL president, Barry Obama, chimed in by saying, “it’s long past time for Congress to act and give them (Dreamers) the protection and certainty they deserve.” Yes, they deserve so much. And we deserve so little.
Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham  hit the nail on the head with what’s going to happen if this goes through. In an appearance on Fox News, he said, “If you give one person legal status there will be a run on our border like you have never seen before. [It’s] the dumbest idea in the history of the Senate, the history of the White House. It will lead to the breakdown of law and order beyond what you see today.”
To get their citizenship scheme passed in the infrastructure bill, the Dems will have to get the support of all 50 Democrat Senators (Manchin seems to be on board) and most of the House – progressives, moderates, liberals and other assorted characters. Plus the parliamentarian has to give the okey dokey thumbs up.
What citizenship for illegals has to do with a budget bill – or infrastructure, I have no idea. But the Democrats don’t really care about details like that.
In a way, the budget bill is the PERFECT place for citizenship to be hiding in.
In many different ways, it’s going to COST us all tremendously
