On Thursday, U.S. Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth McDonough struck a blow to Democrats’ hopes of getting immigration reform into the Build Back Better bill, saying that proposed immigration law changes could not go through the Senate majority-vote reconciliation process. This was the third attempt by Senate Democrats to include immigration reform in the bill and the third time their hopes have been dashed thanks to the ridiculously Byzantine rules of the Senate. Wisconsin’s Voces de la Frontera is not giving up, however, and is still pushing Congress to bring immigration reform home for the holidays. Armando Ibarra is a founding member of Voces de la Frontera’s Essential Worker Rights Network, and he joins Friday Buzz host, Brian Standing, to talk more about this.
