Democrats’ immigration proposal rejected by Senate parliamentarian

Jen Psaki

Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, stated that the decision was “deeply disappointing” and that they “vehemently disagree.”

Democrats are attempting to use the policy package as an opportunity to pass immigration reform, since the filibuster threshold for the bill is lowered to 51. This would give democrats the opportunity to pass immigration reform through the Senate without any GOP votes.

Psaki told the press that she and the White House support any effort to get the bill through the Senate parliamentarian, but would not suggest that they would try to overhaul the position.
