A Monday conference call between President Joe Biden and left-wing House Democrats in support of the Build Back Better Act did not include four of the most prominent representatives in the faction.

Squad members New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley and Michigan Rep. Raashida Tlaib were not asked to participated in the Zoom call, which included Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) chairwoman Pramila Jayapal, Democratic caucus Senior Whip and CPC Deputy Whip Debbie Dingell, and Assistant Speaker Katherine Clark.

Omar, the CPC Whip, and California Rep. Katie Porter, the CPC Deputy Chair, were the only members of CPC leadership to not receive an invitation to participate in the Zoom call.

Democratic New York Rep. Mondaire Jones, who is sometimes grouped with the Squad, did participate in the meeting.
