President Biden will meet with 11 Democratic members of Congress at the White House Thursday to discuss the next steps for providing a pathway to citizenship for undocumented migrants brought to the U.S. as children, a White House official told Axios.

Why it matters: Congressional Democrats plan to try to pass pathways to citizenship for so-called Dreamers, TPS holders and undocumented essential workers in the upcoming reconciliation package. Biden also has consistently called on Congress to pass legislation to protect Dreamers.

  • On Sunday, Biden said it "remains to be seen" when asked about Congress including pathways to citizenship in the reconciliation package.

Flashback: The president met with a group of Dreamers in May.

  • Just last week, Vice President Kamala Harris met with participants in the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and other Dreamers.
  • The meeting followed a recent federal judicial ruling that blocked the administration from approving new DACA applicants.
  • The recent ruling has added even more urgency to congressional efforts to protect and provide pathways for Dreamers.
  • Afterward, the president expressed his disappointment and again urged Congress to pass legislation helping that population of undocumented immigrants.

Details: Those scheduled to meet with the president are:

  • Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin (D-Ill.)
  • Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Menendez (D-N.J.)
  • Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.)
  • Sen. Alex Padilla (D-Calif.)
  • Sen. Ben Ray Lujan (D-N.M.)
  • House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.)
  • Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.)
  • House Hispanic Caucus Chairman Raul Ruiz (D-Calif.)
  • Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.)
  • Rep. Lucille Roybal Allard (D-Calif.)
  • Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.)

Progressives roiled by Pelosi’s sudden strategy shift

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the House would move forward with a vote on the bipartisan infrastructure bill Friday, despite anger and surprise from progressives in the caucus who were caught off guard by the sudden shift in strategy.

Driving the news: Pelosi changed course when she called for a vote on the infrastructure bill before a final vote on the social spending package as a way to appease moderates who want to see a CBO score.

  • Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) said progressives would not support a standalone infrastructure vote and would likewise wait for a CBO score, leaving a path forward on both bills unclear.

Scoop: Senate senses Powell pick

The White House is asking Democratic senators to meet with Federal Reserve chair Jerome Powell before Thanksgiving — leading some to believe President Biden will renominate him this month, people familiar with the matter tell Axios.

Why it matters: The choice of Fed chairman is one of the most consequential in the U.S. and world economic systems. Senators from both parties also are preparing for the confirmation hearing to become a proxy battle over inflation.

Dems plan repair blitz

Congressional Democrats are heading home for their Veterans Day recess convinced Tuesday's losses prove they have a PR problem as much as policy trouble.

Why it matters: The National Republican Campaign Committee — emboldened by its string of wins this week — released a new list of Democratic targets on Wednesday. Democrats are casting about for an answer.
