Breitbart -- Caroline May
With their proposals defeated in Congress for now, pro-amnesty activists have dropped off the radar while President Obama considers a major executive action that Republicans have warned could precipitate a constitutional crisis.
August recess town halls have also been relatively quiet, devoid of reports of pro-amnesty demonstrations. The border crisis has dominated many such events, with lawmakers taking tough questions from constituents, but few have dealt with protests when they make themselves available to constituents.
A Numbers USA coordinator who monitors town halls told Breitbart News Thursday that while immigration has often been a topic of conversation at town hall meetings this cycle, she has not seen the level of protest from immigration activists that the group expected.
“I have not seen any open-borders protests and more surprisingly, the ‘DREAMers’ haven't been showing up to town halls either,” Melanie Oubre, local activism coordinator at NumbersUSA explained to Breitbart News. “We thought they would be hounding House Republicans who voted to cut the funding for DACA.”
