The Palmieri Report previously reported on the Senate parliamentarian dealing a major blow to the Democrats’ amnesty hopes.
Now, we have this.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said that immigration reform is too big to fit into the spending bill.
Sen. Joe Manchin said he does not believe immigration reform will make it into the budget reconciliation bill, delivering a blow to immigration activists who had hoped Democrats would pass a pathway to citizenship without the help of Republicans.
‘I don’t think it’s going to be in there. I really don’t,’ the West Virginia Democrat told Latino Rebels on Monday afternoon. ‘I think it’s too big for that.’
Manchin said he is ‘totally committed’ to the need for immigration reform but but he is unwilling to ‘bust the Byrd Rule.’
Named for another West Virginia Democrat, Sen. Robert Byrd, prohibits ‘extraneous’ measures from being included in budget reconciliation bills, which can be passed by Democrats alone with a simple majority rather than needing 10 votes from Republicans.
