        Fewer Republican Town Hall Meetings in Face of Critical Crowds | PBS NewsHour

        Members of Congress customarily hold town hall meetings in their home districts while on recess, in order to talk to and hear from constituents on a variety of issues. However, fewer than 30 Republicans have held such gatherings during the most recent recess due to the high number of protests and angry constituents showing up to voice their opposition to President Donald Trump's policies. Issues raised at recent town halls include the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, job creation, and the president's executive orders surrounding immigration law.
