Menendez: No ‘Path Forward’ for Amnesty Without Reconciliation

Menendez: No ‘Path Forward’ for Amnesty Without Reconciliation

July 30, 2021

In a meeting on Thursday with the pro-mass migration American Business Immigration Coalition (ABIC), Sen. Bob Menendez admitted that Senate Democrats have no “pathway forward” on giving amnesty to millions of illegal aliens without relying on the little-known reconciliation process that would allow them to slip such a plan in a spending package.

“If we don’t have reconciliation, I’m not sure that there’s a pathway forward, because we started this whole process with a series, 10 to 12 … significant meetings … with our Republican colleagues,” Menendez said. “As we speak, Democrats are working to finalize a $3.5 trillion budget resolution that instructs the Judiciary Committee to include … a pathway to citizenship,” he continued. “So that’s a good sign. The road ahead is going to be bumpy but I believe that we can get there.”

Menendez said Senate Democrats are “looking to include the greatest number of people” in the amnesty provision of their trillion-dollar budget, including illegal aliens who are enrolled and eligible for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, those with Temporary Protected Status (TPS), those employed on U.S. farms, and those they consider “essential workers.”

Nationally, nearly 16 million Americans remain jobless but all want full-time employment. Another 4.6 million Americans are underemployed but want a full-time job. The Congressional Budget Office has repeatedly found that amnesty for illegal aliens would be a net fiscal drain for American taxpayers while driving down U.S. wages.

Democrats don’t care about U.S. citizens. They more desperately need the votes of the millions of illegals they have allowed to flood our border.
