As reported earlier, at least 30 illegal immigrants or DREAMers are expected to attention Trump’s first State of the Union address as guests of the Democratic Party.
The guest list is intended to shame the president into caving on his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals negotiations, which earlier caused a Democrat retreat on the short-lived government shutdown.
Here are some of the guests the Democrats plan to bring:
Meet my guest for the #SOTU: Arisaid, a #Dreamer from Arizona and a student at Georgetown University. Despite what Trump says tonight, I’ll continue fighting for Dreamers and all of our immigrant community. #ProtectDreamers pic.twitter.com/PXIOuI4y5k

I am thrilled to have Esli Becerra as my #SOTU guest to represent the 11,000 #DREAMers in Oregon who count on Congress to come together in a bipartisan way to find a path to citizenship for these model citizens. pic.twitter.com/yyJLrsFIHQ

.@RepPeteAguilar: “Every day Congress fails to pass a solution that protects #DREAMers, and people like Leti are forced to live with a cloud of uncertainty over their head.” Leticia Herrera, a #DACA recipient from @CSUSBNews, is Aguilar’s #SOTU guest.https://t.co/fJTVvvbbR8 pic.twitter.com/fvW7eigcQL

Meanwhile, GOP. Rep. Paul Gosar called on the Capitol Police to do their jobs and arrest the illegal immigrants.
“Today, Congressman Paul Gosar contacted the U.S. Capitol Police, as well as Attorney General Jeff Sessions,” he tweeted, “asking they consider checking identification of all attending the State of the Union address and arresting any illegal aliens in attendance.”
“Additionally, Congressman Gosar asked that they arrest those using fraudulent social security numbers and identification to pass through security,” he continued.
“Of all the places where the Rule of Law needs to be enforced, it should be in the hallowed halls of Congress,” Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar added. “Any illegal aliens attempting to go through security, under any pretext of invitation or otherwise, should be arrested and deported.”
Perhaps the best retort came from James Woods, whose tweet sums up the Democratic Party’s exceeding interest in providing amnesty to immigrants who didn’t follow the law or whose parents didn’t follow the law.
