    GOP lawmaker to bring DACA recipient to Trump's State of the Union

    GOP lawmaker to bring DACA recipient to Trump's State of the Union


    January 27, 2018


    A centrist House Republican announced Friday that he will bring a recipient of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program as his guest to President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday amid debate in Congress over whether such young immigrants should be permitted to stay in the U.S.
    Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.) has invited Adrian Escarate, who was brought to the U.S. from Chile when he was 3 years old, to be seated in the gallery overlooking the House chamber during Trump’s speech.



    According to Curbelo’s office, Escarate graduated cum laude from St. Thomas University in 2011 and received a work permit through the DACA program, which went into effect a year later under then-President Obama.
    The Trump administration is rescinding the DACA program, meaning that the roughly 700,000 recipients like Escarate would face deportation if Congress doesn’t enact a legislative fix.



    “One of my chief legislative priorities this Congress and the last has been to forge a compromise on immigration that delivers a fair, permanent solution for young immigrants like him,” Curbelo said in a statement.
    Curbelo added that he was “encouraged” by the immigration frameworkoutlined by the White House on Thursday, which calls for granting a pathway to citizenship for nearly 2 million young immigrants in exchange for billions of dollars for Trump’s promised wall along the Mexican border and other policies to restrict legal immigration.


    Honored to have Adrian, a #SoFla #DACA recipient, as my guest for #SOTUnext week. I was encouraged by the immigration outline the @WhiteHousereleased yesterday & look forward to working w/ colleagues from both sides of the aisle to make sure Congress fully recognizes #Dreamerspic.twitter.com/LexyvcRNyd

    Scores of Democratic lawmakers are also inviting young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as their guests to the State of the Union on Tuesday. But Curbelo is so far the first Republican to make the same gesture.

    Curbelo, who is running for reelection in a district won by Hillary Clinton in 2016, has positioned himself as a centrist on immigration issues.



    He introduced legislation last year that would provide a path to legal status for immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.



    Curbelo’s bill is more conservative than the DREAM Act, which Democrats are pushing along with a handful of other Republicans.



    The DREAM Act would apply to qualifying young immigrants who had entered the U.S. before the age of 18 and lived in the country for at least four years. Curbelo’s measure, by comparison, would require qualifying immigrants to establish that they arrived in the U.S. before the age of 16 and lived in the country continuously since at least 2012.

    Oh, how convenient - went from "brought here thru no fault of their own" to entered before age 18 & been here for 4 yrs.

    Seriously - Is this bs going to fly???? This is way different than "brought by parents as a child"!!!!!!

    Pelosi to Bring Illegals to SOTU; Trump Should Bring ICE Agents

    Todd Starnes · Jan. 29, 2018

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and a number of other Democrats plan to fill the House gallery with illegal aliens when President Trump delivers his first State of the Union address.

    ABC News reports at least 24 House Democrats plan to bring illegals — the so-called “Dreamers” — to watch the Tuesday night speech from the House gallery.

    The illegal aliens will be sitting in seats that in previous years were meant for brave military heroes, law-abiding taxpayers and America’s best and brightest.

    The sad truth is that Democrats would rather align themselves with foreign invaders who violated our national sovereignty, thumbed their nose at the rule of law, and pillaged and plundered taxpayer-funded resources.

    And now, Pelosi has decided to turn the U.S. Capitol into a sanctuary — a safe safe — for people who are living in our nation illegally.

    In response, President Trump should fill the remainder of the House gallery with Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

    Imagine the message he could send to the world if he directed ICE agents to arrest every illegal alien in the House chamber live on national television.

    Just last week, an angry horde of illegals stormed the office of Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC).

    “F— this conservative! F— this person,” one so-called “Dreamer” shouted. “This office is supposed to protect me. This office is supposed to make me feel like home.”

    Other Dreamers staged a mock funeral in the Senate and hurled racial insults at Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Breitbart News reported.

    There are millions of immigrant Dreamers who want to come to the United States legally, but Democrats have decided a rampaging mob of profane illegals would make better citizens.

    So if President Trump truly wants to demonstrate a no-nonsense, “America First” policy, he should round up every illegal alien attending the State of the Union address and put them on school buses with a one-way ticket back across the border.

    And if it’s not asking too much, perhaps the Justice Department could launch an investigation to determine if Pelosi and the other Democrats broke federal law by harboring illegal aliens.

    It’s time to put a stop to this lawlessness.

    California has already been overrun by the foreign invaders. New York City waved the white flag without so much as a fight. We must not allow Democrats to surrender Capitol Hill.
