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.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
