The issue of including a pathway to citizenship for the millions of illegals in this country has already been settled.
The Senate Parliamentarian has ruled that it did not fit the necessary requirements to be included in a budgetary bill passed by reconciliation.
Democrats in the House, however, now want that ruling ignored to offer a pathway to citizenship for them all.
Just like the CBO score, Democrats want to pretend the Senate Parliamentarian ruling does not exist.
After Joe Biden called the CBO the “gold standard” for grading the costs of legislation, he now says they don’t have the expertise to grade his particular piece of legislation.
Likewise, House Dems want the Senate Parliamentarian overridden.
In a letter signed by AOC and 89 other House Democrats, they stated, “We do understand that the Senate Parliamentarian has issued a memorandum dismissing — despite evidence to the contrary — the budgetary impact of providing a pathway to citizenship.
“But the role of the Parliamentarian is an advisory one, and the Parliamentarian’s opinion is not binding.”
The letter concludes, “The moment is now.
“We urge you to reinstate a pathway to citizenship for Dreams, TPS holder, farm workers, and essential workers in the Senate’s version of the reconciliation bill.”

This just proves how far Democrats are willing to go to redefine infrastructure.
It also shows their shortsightedness while having all the power.
We all know how much outrage there would be if this were Republicans making this request rather than Democrats.
This move, however, would set a precedent, one that Republicans could draw upon time and time again when and if they retake power in Congress.
These people have to be stopped. Election Day 2022 cannot get here soon enough.
