Senate Parliamentarian says Dem’s $3.5T bill can’t include citizenship path for illegals

Moments ago, Zeke Miller tweeted “AP source: Senate parliamentarian says $3.5T bill can’t include citizenship path for immigrants, big blow to Biden, Dems.”

In a crushing setback to Democrats and Biden’s agenda , the Senate’s parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough, a non-partisan interpreter of rules, said Democrats can’t use their $3.5 trillion package to create a citizenship path for illegals.

Per the AP this “badly damages Democrats’ hopes of unilaterally enacting — over Republican opposition — changes letting several categories of immigrants gain permanent residence and possibly citizenship.”
