Senate parliamentarian holds immigration reform in her hands
The Biden administration, aware that it would not get bipartisan support in Congress through regular means, decided to include an immigration resolution in the 2022 budget package, which has already passed the US House of Representatives and is currently awaiting a response from the Senate Parliamentarian to move to the upper chamber of Congress.
Broadly speaking, the current administration proposes to invest approximately $107 billion to improve the immigration system, which includes, among other things, opening a path to legalization for undocumented foreign workers such as Dreamers (young people who came to the US as children), TPS (Temporary Protected Status) beneficiaries, farmworkers, inter alia.
On Friday, September 10, Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough, who is a former immigration attorney, was scheduled to hear arguments about why including an immigration resolution in the budget package would boost the economy.
Naturally, tension is now growing around the immigration sector, especially since the Senate Parliamentarian’s decision could be the missing piece for the Biden administration to bring comprehensive immigration reform through the budget reconciliation process.

Biden’s proposal to protect undocumented workers
The Biden administration is streamlining the passage of the budget package through the reconciliation process, which allows it to bypass Republican opposition and implement the proposal with only 51 votes in the Senate.
Now, it is important to know what are the expected results of Biden’s immigration reform. Let’s look at some important facts:
- There are currently more than 11 million immigrants residing in the US undocumented.
- According to Biden’s proposal, approximately 8 million undocumented immigrants, who are essential workers, would benefit from immigration reform.
Knowing this, the real question is, if there are 11 million undocumented immigrants, why does Biden want to protect only 8 million? The answer is simple, because they are essential workers.
In other words, immigration reform is not only a benefit for undocumented immigrants, it is an imperative necessity to keep the economy afloat in times of crisis.
