In town halls, U.S. lawmakers hear voter anger over illegal migrants

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 23:39

House Financial Services Committee Chairman Rep.

Jeb Hensarling sat down with colleagues and constituents at a recent Chamber of Commerce lunch in Dallas, the first question he faced was whether Congress planned to address immigration policy and a burgeoning border crisis.

It has been a question heard repeatedly by lawmakers this month in "town hall" district meetings punctuated - and sometimes dominated - by concerns and angry outbursts over immigration policy and the crisis caused by a flood of child migrants at the southwestern border in recent months.
