WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) Chair Raul Ruiz, M.D. released the following statement regarding the Senate Parliamentarian’s ruling on a pathway to legal status via reconciliation:
“While we did not get the decision we wanted from the Senate Parliamentarian, the fight is far from over,” said Chair Dr. Ruiz. “The Congressional Hispanic Caucus will continue our ‘all-of-the-above and any which way’ approach to passing immigration reform. We look forward to the Senate Democrats’ alternative proposal to the Senate Parliamentarian and remain confident that we will secure a path forward on immigration reform.”
