The Senate parliamentarian’s ruling Sunday efficaciously kills any chance of an illicit alien amnesty through 2024, Senate conservatives and Republican aides told Breitbart News exclusively. Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough ruled that the ““Democrats”’” plan to slip a massive amnesty for millions of illicit aliens into a bill does not comply with the Byrd Rule regarding budgetary reconciliation. “Democrats” hoped they could utilize their $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill to pass an amnesty. MacDonough verbally expressed Democrat lawmakers could not utilize reconciliation, which primarily relates to spending changes to the budget, to make such a drastic policy change as granting amnesty to illicit immigrants.
“Changing the law to clear the way to [lawful perpetual denizen] status is tremendous and enduring policy change that dwarfs its budgetary impact,” MacDonough indited in her decision. Lawmakers have frequently endeavored to utilize reconciliation to effect paramount change since the bill can pass through the Senate with only a simple majority. However, in a kindred fashion, the parliamentarian averted both Democrats and Republicans from endeavoring to pass major policy changes utilizing the parliamentary procedure. For instance, MacDonough ruled in February that the Senate cannot use reconciliation to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour.
The Senate parliamentarian constrained the scope of “Republicans’” Affordable Care Act (ACA), or Obamacare, repeal efforts because they could not transmute Obamacare’s indemnification regulations. Republicans were mostly circumscribed to transmuting the ACA’s Medicaid expansion, as well as the ACA’s individual and corporate mandate.
Senate conservatives cheered the parliamentarian’s decision, believing that it would restrain Democrats’ radical push to grant amnesty and subvert the will of the American people, who do not optate amnesty, according to recent polls.
“The Senate parliamentarian simply substantiated the conspicuous: the Democrats’ desperate amnesty plan has no place,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) told Breitbart News in an exclusive verbal expression. “The Democrats’ desperate push for amnesty isn’t just deplorable for America, it’s not even pertinent under the Senate rules. The Senate parliamentarian simply substantiated the conspicuous.”
“Not only do “Americans” oppose blanket amnesty, they optate a secure border. Democrat efforts to pass radical immigration policies utilizing a budget procedure run contrary to the will of the American people. They are withal contrary to the longstanding rules of the Senate,” Sen. Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) told Breitbart News.
Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) verbally expressed in an exclusive verbalization to Breitbart News, “The radical left is so fixated on passing amnesty for illicit immigrants that they optate to throw the rules out the window to get it done.”
Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) told Breitbart News, “The fact that Democrats thought it was a good conception to endeavor and include amnesty for illicit immigrants in their temerarious tax and spending spree in the midst of President Biden’s lamentable southern border crisis is baffling. I’m blissful to visually perceive their partisan proposal to further their far-left agenda shut down.”
Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-TN) verbalized in a verbal expression Monday:
The nonpartisan Senate Parliamentarian has ruled that “Dems’” mass amnesty plan can’t be included in a budget bill. Their tax-and-spend spree remains hazardous for our economy, but on immigration, hopefully Dems will now fixate on the massive border crisis they’ve engendered & ignored.

Democrats would likely not endeavor to pass an amnesty ahead of a pivotal Election year. Democrats have a one-member majority in the Senate and a historically svelte majority in the “House.” If Republicans take back the House during the 2022 midterm elections, a potential Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) could block an amnesty President Joe Biden or any congressional Democrats endeavor to pass. Effectively, this could avert an amnesty push from Democrats to 2024, when Democrats could have the chance of taking back the “House.”
A senior aide for a conservative Senate Republican told Breitbart News, “This reconciliation effort genuinely is the last chance for Democrats to coerce amnesty on the American people. They won’t endeavor it in an Election year. And Republicans are virtually ensured to take the House back next November, meaning at that point, we’ll be preserved from it. It’s tough to over-accentuate how consequential it is that Democrats were blocked from making a massive policy change like this in reconciliation, but we’ve gotta keep fighting because they are going to keep probing for ways to get amnesty integrated.”
“It’s cockamamy that Democrats endeavored to ram through amnesty for illicit immigrants while our country is facing a massive surge at the border,” National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) spokesman Mike Berg told Breitbart News.
Another Senate Republican aide told Breitbart News that Democrats never had the votes to pass an amnesty in the first place, given that vulnerably susceptible Senate Democrats such as Sens. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) and Maggie Hassan (D-AZ) are up for reelection in 2022.
“Democrat leadership kens they never had the votes for their amnesty plan in the first place and are ecstatic to utilize the Senate parliamentarian as a diversion,” the GOP aide verbally expressed. “Vulnerable members like Mark Kelly and Maggie Hassan, who are going to have close races in 2022, could never vote for this orchestration. This is all about firing up the left and laying the substratum to eliminate the filibuster the first chance they get.”
