Pathways to citizenship scrapped from $3.5T bill

Senate parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough ruled that the Democrats cannot include pathways to citizenship in the administration's $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill, the Hill reported.

"The policy changes of this proposal far outweigh the budgetary impact scored to it and it is not appropriate for inclusion in reconciliation," she wrote in the ruling obtained by the media outlet.

The party had planned to provide millions of undocumented migrants with green cards as part of the spending package.
