Democrats’ amnesty push for illegal immigrants in massive $3.5T budget package;
“Democrats are trying to sneak mass amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants through Congress under the cover of their budget scheme,” Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La.
- Democrats announced earlier this week they have agreed to a $3.5 trillion budget resolution, which would advance a number of top liberal priorities.
- It is also unclear how many illegal immigrants could be given a pathway to citizenship in such a bill, or what the requirements for them to meet would be; typically similar legislation requires background checks and some fees but often offers immediate residency or protection from deportation. However, the number who could be eligible would certainly be in the millions.
