Lawmakers had been hoping to use the wide-ranging climate and social-policy package to enact major immigration changes without Republican votes.

  • Joe Biden’s immigration agenda suffered another blow Wednesday as the Senate parliamentarian rejected a plan that could have created a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants.
  • The immigration registry was created under the Registry Act of 1929, which created a process for immigrants to apply for a green card.
  • Those who currently qualify for the registry must have maintained continuous presence in the United States and were of “good moral character” before January 1, 1972. Democrats presented a plan to the parliamentarian to change the immigration registry date to 2010.
  • Democrats are not planning immediately to reconvene to discuss a “Plan C,” the Senate aide said.
  • This is the second setback Democrats have faced in trying to include immigration in the reconciliation package.
