FACT CHECK: Democrat's Answer To The State Of The Union Address, Annotated

Two dozen undocumented immigrants will attend President Trump's State of the Union speech in Congress at the height of negotiations over the status of hundreds of thousands of immigrants who were brought to the United States illegally as children

He smartly posed Trump not as the embodiment of the popular will (as autocrats commonly do) but as a "bully" - who will "land a blow and leave a mark" but can not "match the strength and spirit of the people united in defense of their future".

Kennedy is the grandson of the late Robert Kennedy, the former US attorney general and NY senator who was assassinated in 1968.

Speaking in front of the school's students, Kennedy will call the spot "a fitting place to gather as our nation reflects on the state of our union". "We're a country that needs to be united, and the goal is for all of us to win". "Every one of us who raises our right hand is prepared to give everything in the defense of our country".

Kennedy said, "It would be easy to dismiss the past year as chaos".

Democrats, as well as the open borders lobby, Republican establishment, and the big business lobby, have pushed for months for a large-scale amnesty plan that would legalize millions of illegal aliens while crushing the wages of American workers and further burdening America's working and middle class. "This administration isn't just targeting the laws that protect us", he stated. The great nephew of president John Kennedy and Senator Ted Kennedy. "Instead, it will be resistance, resistance, resistance", wrote Michael Reed, Republican National Committee spokesman. Waters has said she won't attend Trump's speech, joining several Democratic colleagues - including Reps.

His selection by Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was in part a slap at an emerging Kennedy rival, Rep. Seth Moulton, who backed a move to unseat Pelosi as leader after the 2016 election. He has been a member of the House of Representatives since 2013.

Bengtsson-Davis said in a statement Trump's announcement he'd ban transgender people from the USA military "sort of blew me away".

Kennedy will not be in the chamber as President Donald Trump addresses Congress because he will be delivering the Democratic response following the president's speech. "His administration threatens to drag our nation back to a shameful past, one in which our people were judged not by the quality of their character, but by the color of their skin and by their religious beliefs", she said in the speech. When Trump mentioned appointing a record number of judges, a few Democrats hissed and booed.

Paging Elizabeth Warren - somebody borrowed your punchline. They pull for their city. Lawmakers and the White House are feuding over the details of a long-term legislative solution to replace DACA.

"I don't believe that [the ban] is reflective of our country at its best, or of the values Americans hold", Kennedy told the Globe.

Most Democrats are using the event to highlight concerns about immigration, health, gun violence prevention and sexual misconduct.

"Congressman Kennedy is an inspiring leader who has a unique ability to break down complex policy issues and connect with our hearts and souls", Luján said.
