On Monday, Biden urged Congress to pass the bill, which would, among other things, increase green cards given to foreign nationals, expedite work permits for migrants, and allow some 35,000 migrant encounters at the southern border before the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) could deploy border controls.

Biden’s lobbying for the bill comes as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said he wants to put the legislation up for a vote on the Senate floor this week.

In response, Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chair Nanette Barragan (D-CA) said her caucus will lobby against the bill, mainly because it does not include provisions to provide amnesty to millions of illegal aliens living in the United States.
