Immigration resolution rejected in budget package
Recently, in light of the border situation and the lack of bipartisan support in Congress, the Biden administration decided to include an immigration resolution in the 2022 budget package.
This budget package proposes to invest $3.5 trillion in different sectors to boost the economy in times of global crisis. Biden’s budget package is being introduced through the reconciliation process in order to circumvent Republican obstructionism in the Senate, the upper chamber of Congress.
Roughly speaking, the reconciliation process would allow the budget package to pass with only 51 votes in the Senate, instead of 60.
Therefore, the Biden administration attempted to introduce immigration reform through the budget package. However, the Senate Parliamentarian recently stated that the immigration legislation included in the budget bill does not qualify as a budget item and rejected it.
