Democrats did everything possible to show-up President Trump during the State of the Union address. Even when he said things that crossed party lines, Dems routinely refused to stand and clap.
Liberals decided to bring a number of illegal DREAMers to Trump’s speech.
Here’s that story…
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats will fill the balcony with so-called Dreamers and other immigrants during President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address next week as the party panned a White House attempt on Thursday to reach a deal on immigration reform.
The White House released a one-page framework for legislation that includes a path to citizenship for 1.8 million Dreamers — recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA — and other undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children. The proposal, the work of senior White House adviser Stephen Miller, was offered as a bipartisan compromise to give young undocumented immigrants a legal foothold in exchange for more than $25 billion in increased border security and a sharp reduction in future legal immigration.
While Miller described the plan as a dramatic concession for the White House, Democrats aren’t yet buying in and plan to make a statement at the State of the Union on Tuesday.
Trump’s four-word response for Dems who brought DREAMers won the night: “Americans are dreamers, too.”
From BizPac Review:
President Trump’s first State of the Union was filled with memorable moments. But no line is more memorable than the president’s case for the entire nation: Americans are dreamers, too.
It is an homage to the forgotten men and women who got the president elected. It pays tribute to our American heritage, including all the immigrants who legally came to this nation and bravely strove to build a better future for themselves and their children.
“Americans are dreamers, too.” Pres. Trump on his duty, and the duty of all elected officials, to defend Americans' "right to the American dream." https://t.co/wdGSMPKty8 #SOTU pic.twitter.com/WuMmnUwamE

More on illegals, per BizPac Review:
Younger illegal immigrants in Arizona make up a far larger percentage of the state’s prison inmates than their share of the population would suggest, according to a new analysis.
While illegal immigrants ages 18 to 35 — a group immigration activists call “Dreamers” — are about 2 percent of of the Arizona population, they are almost 8 percent of the prison population. The over-representation by a factor of four shows that younger illegal immigrants in Arizona are far more likely to commit crimes than U.S. citizens or legal immigrants of a similar age, says John Lott Jr., president of the Crime Prevention Research Center.
“Even after adjusting for the fact that young people commit crime at higher rates, young undocumented immigrants commit crime at twice the rate of young U.S. citizens,” Lott wrote in a report published Thursday. “These undocumented immigrants also tend to commit more serious crimes.”
Lott’s analysis uses data from the Arizona Department of Corrections, which identifies inmates by citizenship and immigration status. It compiles conviction data from 1985 through 2017, using criminal convictions as a proxy for criminality. That metric may actually understate the propensity for criminal behavior among illegal immigrants, because their victims, often illegal immigrants themselves, are less likely to report crime.
