The House Freedom Caucus is urging lawmakers to skip an upcoming break in an attempt to reach a compromise to end the partial government shutdown.

In a Monday night posting on its Twitter account, the freedom caucus said: “Official position: HFC calls for House to stay in session through the weekend and next week, instead of gaveling out and taking a break. We must keep working to solve the border crisis and reach a compromise.”

The Hill noted the House is scheduled a break from Jan. 17-28.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., who chairs the freedom caucus, had said last month Trump was not about to yield on the issue of funding for the border wall.
