Pelosi Says Build Back Better Bill “Fully Paid” But Senate Passage Is Still Unclear

Lisa Desjardins:

Okay, let’s talk about the proposals that are on the table of the House Democrats.

This is a problem that many Democrats are now struggling with, trying to figure out whether they want to participate in this bill or not. This is where we are. There is one option. This is an option related to the registration of immigrants in this country, and it, in fact, will allow you to get green cards and a path to citizenship for those who arrived in this country after 2010 or – those who were here – I’m sorry – who came until 2010.

Let me make sure I get it right. This is confusing. However, the moderates are worried because this is a large population. It would be millions of undocumented people in this country now, in fact, anyone who came here before 2010.

However, the second option, which is moderated as best, is status, not a green card and not a path to citizenship. This is what is called parole. This will be a five to ten year parole of technical immigration. It will be extended to five years if people comply with the terms.

But progressives, of course, do not like this. So how do you square this circle? These are two problems, two ideas that are now on the table. Progressives say that something is better than nothing. They are all concerned, Judy, because it is unclear if any of these ideas could go to a Senate meeting, where a Senate deputy, as our viewers know, has to say that everything in this bill is budgetary.
