"It took a lot of courage and integrity for Elizabeth MacDonough to stand up to Schumer and Pelosi and do the right thing by ruling against their overt willingness to break the rules" -- William Gheen
RALEIGH, NC, September 20, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Immigration PAC commends Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough for doing the right thing and ruling that Democrats inserting Amnesty for millions of illegal aliens into a budget bill to subvert the filibuster rule violates Senate rules.
"It took a lot of courage and integrity for Elizabeth MacDonough to stand up to Schumer and Pelosi and do the right thing by ruling against their overt willingness to break the rules of the Senate to try and pass an unpopular Amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants using the budget bill. Illegal immigrants are amassing on our borders and rushing into America in historic numbers responding to appeals by the Biden administration and other Democrats enticing them with Amnesty legislation which violates federal law," said William Gheen, spokesperson for ALIPAC.us
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC sent a written appeal to Elizabeth MacDonough opposing the Amnesty in the budget on grounds it was not germane on 8-24-21, which stated...
[QUOTE]US Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth Macdonough:
Please explain to me why you are allowing the rules of Congress to be flagrantly broken by the reconciliation budget bill, which contains Amnesty for millions of illegal aliens along with other non-germane unrelated items?
State legislatures modeled after our federal model all have the same rule the US Senate does which requires the budget bill to only contain items that are directly and clearly associated with funding and expenditures.
Green cards, Amnesty, and voting rights for millions of illegal immigrant's legislation is clearly not germane to the budget.
If this budget bill and all of the radical legislative items contained within it, is passed into law using this sleazy tactic designed to bypass the Senate's time-honored filibuster rule, the backlash from the American public is going to be immeasurable.
How could anyone who truly cared about our country throw this kind of political gasoline on the fire at this time when our borders, economy, healthcare, and political systems are in dire turmoil?
The filibuster rule was designed to assure that no political faction holding only a narrow majority could institute radical changes to America's laws and policies. That is clearly the case today with the Democrat's narrow 50 vote margin in the US Senate.
Why are you allowing the subversion of the Senate filibuster rule? Is it partisanship, corruption, or both?
Otherwise, I look forward to your explanation of why you are allowing the Senate rules to be violated by this reconciliation budget bill.
