Congress is in session for parts of 11 months of the year. Every day of every month so far this year has been hyper-focused on the wants of foreign nationals invading our border. It’s time to add the twelfth month to the calendar: Abolish the August recess and dedicate that month exclusively to the needs of all American citizens in securing the border and ending alien crime in this country. One month out of 12 is not too much to ask; nor is finally fulfilling forsaken promises to the American people on the border and actually enforcing existing law.
How could Congress in good conscience go on recess for August while one million illegal immigrants, with many violent criminals among them, are coming to our border, endangering Americans, fleecing our communities, exposing us to health risks, and empowering drug cartels, human smugglers, and sex trafficking? Every other month is now dedicated to some niche identity group or behavior. Let’s have August dedicated to the sovereign American citizen.
President Trump should call on at least the Republican-controlled Senate to stay in session for the entire month of August and work overtime and on weekends. He should threaten to use his authority under Article II, section 3 of the Constitution to reconvene Congress if it chooses to adjourn. Why should these members get to spend the month partying on vacations disguised as fact-finding missions on the public dime – fiddling as our border burns?
