House GOP Delays Recess

"House Republicans plan to delay their August recess to stay in Washington until they have enough votes to pass a bill responding to the border crisis," The Hill reports.

"GOP leaders pulled legislation from the schedule Thursday after it became clear the votes weren't there to pass a $659 million supplemental funding bill. But just as it appeared the conference would leave town for a five-week recess having done nothing to respond to the crisis, Republicans held a closed-door conference meeting and emerged staying they would extend their workweek to try to get something done."
