Spending Bill May Usher Immigration Reform

Spending Bill May Usher Immigration Reform

U.S. President Joe Biden said last month that immigration should be a part of an upcoming budget bill.

Biden had indicated his intent to provide a pathway for Dreamers — beneficiaries of the DACA program — in the past. According to Reuters, he told White House reporters last month that it remains uncertain whether or not the program will be addressed in the legislation.

A July 13 working memo to Democratic Senators detailed the $3.5 trillion framework agreement. According to the memo, a planned $107 billion would be allocated to the Judiciary Committee, including coverage of a pathway to “lawful permanent status for qualified immigrants.”

The motion isn’t expected to be popular among Republicans. But Biden’s $3.5 trillion spending bill could bode without Republican support via reconciliation, a process in which a spending bill only needs a simple majority to pass.

DACA was implemented by the Obama administration in 2012 to allow immigrants brought to the U.S. as minors to legally live and work in the country. In July a federal judge in Texas declared DACA unlawful and blocked the Biden administration from accepting new applications. Biden issued a statement in response to the ruling, calling it “deeply disappointing” and calling on Congress to protect Dreamers “through reconciliation or other means.”
