President Trump’s 2018 State of the Union Address will be given on Tuesday, January 30, 2018, at 9 pm EST in the chamber of the United States House of Representatives. But will President Trump’s second State of the Union address, be overshadowed by a balcony filled with DACA residents (illegal aliens, who were given deferred deportation status by a radical community organizer and former Democrat president, whose only goal was to create a massive voting block for Democrats)? Americans should be outraged by the Democrat’s stunt will be used to deflect from the long list of incredible, pro-forgotten man, pro-American worker, and pro-veteran accomplishments by President Trump, a Republican-led House, and Senate, along with Trump’s hard-working administration.
Perhaps Americans should be demanding that ICE asks for proof of citizenship outside the doors of the SOTU address. Just a thought…
According to Politico, Democrats plan to fill balcony with ‘Dreamers’ for State of the Union
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.
Dear Mr President, the American people will be extremely offended if ‘Dreamers’ aka illegals are permitted to attend the #SOTU invited by Democrats leaving out our children and veterans! Illegals should not be permitted to attend period! @realDonaldTrump

Here are a few answers to questions many Americans have about illegal aliens who were given deferred deportation status by former President Barack Obama.
Does DACA give recipients legal status in the U.S.?
The DACA program doesn’t provide a path to citizenship, and even though recipients have deportation deferred, they still do not have lawful status.
How old are they?
The average age of DACA recipients was 25 years old last year, according to a national survey of 3,063 DACA holders in August 2017. The vast majority — 82.5 percent — were under 30.
Where do they live?
The largest concentrations of those with initial DACA approvals were in California (28 percent) and Texas (16 percent), according to USCIS. About 5 percent of initial DACA approvals came from New York; another 5 percent came from Illinois, and 4 percent came from Florida. But there have been DACA recipients from all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Northern Mariana Islands.
Here are a few FACTS on DACA recipients:
Now, let’s talk about immigrants on welfare (courtesy of working American citizens):
According to USA Today: More than half of the nation’s immigrants receive some kind of government welfare, a figure that’s far higher than the native-born population’s, according to a report to be released Wednesday.
About 51% of immigrant-led households receive at least one kind of welfare benefit, including Medicaid, food stamps, school lunches and housing assistance, compared to 30% for native-led households, according to the report from the Center for Immigration Studies, a group that advocates for lower levels of immigration.
Those numbers increase for households with children, with 76% of immigrant-led households receiving welfare, compared to 52% for the native-born.
