House GOP to Hold Border Crisis Summit

House GOP leadership will be holding a border crisis summit at 9 a.m. Friday morning, Speaker John Boehner’s spokesman Michael Steel announced in an email to reporters on Thursday.

“The House Republican Conference will hold a meeting tomorrow morning at 9 AM to continue discussing the humanitarian crisis at our southern border, and the menu of recommendations developed by the Working Group led by Rep. Kay Granger,” Steel wrote. “Due to a packed schedule and the complexity of the issue, there was not enough time for Member feedback at yesterday’s meeting.”

On Wednesday, Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX)—the head of Boehner’s border crisis working group—introduced the group’s recommendations, but not any legislation. A number of key conservatives, especially Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), have criticized the Boehner working group plan, noting a press release announcing it does not mention President Barack Obama's name.

Sessions, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) are leading a push to confront Obama's use of executive actions on immigration in the bill.

While Republicans debate their approach, the prospects for the House and Senate coming together before the August recess on a border deal look increasingly bleak.

They need that Chamber of Commerce money. They are scrambling to figure out how to make amnesty happen.
