On Tuesday, October 8, Rep. Scott Perry (R-Penn.) was the sole Member of Congress to address the fact on the House floor that the National Park Service permitted a rally to occur on the National Mall, which was supposed to be closed during the federal government shutdown. Congressman Perry questions the discretion exercised by the Administration to the grant the permit.
Rep. Perry said, “On the Mall adjacent to the street that’s closed because it’s a Federal park area, there’s an immigration rally that’s being supported by the Park Police. What’s happening, Mr. Speaker?”
