Despite repeated prodding from “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace, Rep. Steve Scalise wouldn’t definitively say whether the U.S. House would delay its month-long August recess and remain in Washington, D.C., to address the flood of illegal immigrants coming to the United States.

“We’re going to get our job done,” said Scalise, the Louisiana Republican who will become majority whip this week.

Several bills addressing the influx of illegal immigrants crossing the country’s southern border have been introduced in the House and Senate. Lawmakers have yet to take action, prompting President Obama to criticize them and suggest postponing recess.
