A new Democratic push to reward illegal immigrants has begun.
This week, House Democrats passed a huge legislative branch budget that changes the rules to allow participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to work for Congress, according to Fox News.
Currently, only people who are in the country legally can work on Capitol Hill.
Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio praised the effort to have illegal immigrants work in the halls of power.
Last night, Congress passed the 21% increase we asked for back in June. This is an important step towards retaining staff, increasing Hill diversity & growing the practice of paid internships. t.co/hQTOQoNtRk

Illegal migrants let in during the Obama era and long promised amnesty by Democrats have been cleared to work for House members as part of a massive budget approved this week on a party-line vote.
Liberal members led by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez heralded the $4.8 billion bill, which she said included a 21% increase for staffing.
