Even if lightning strikes Friday and Congress OK's an immigration bill, activists angered with unaccompanied minors swarming over the U.S.-Mexico border plan to invade town hall meetings House members are planning during the five-week congressional recess.

The immigration reduction group NumbersUSA is one of those already drawing up protest plans. They distributed details to their two million members on the lawmakers already planning to host public meetings in their district.

According to the group, 99 Republicans have scheduled town halls. Just 41 Democrats have done the same.
 
No immigration bill is expected to pass both houses and be signed by the president, according to several sources.

“No matter what happens today, there are grave concerns that voters need to confront their representatives about this summer,” NumbersUSA said in a statement provided to Secrets.

“The long list includes President Obama’s plans to issue more executive amnesties, the federal government relocating illegal aliens to towns across the country and a tragically long reputation of the government refusing to enforce our immigration laws -- the cause of the border crisis we are experiencing now.

“The amount of attention being paid to immigration is at the highest it’s been in years. Because of this, a pro-enforcement, commonsense message is echoing loudly across the nation. Americans en masse are feeling the consequences of our government’s failures,” they added.

Constitutions are not designed for metaphysical or logical subtleties, for niceties of expression, for critical propriety, for elaborate shades of meaning, or for the exercise of philosophical acuteness or judicial research. They are instruments of a practical nature, founded on the common business of human life, adapted to common wants, designed for common use, and fitted for common understandings.
