“Forget about the wall, stop separating families and focus on immigration reform.”
President Donald Trump will be surrounded by feminists and illegal immigrants who vehemently oppose him when he delivers his State of the Union address on Tuesday.
Female Democratic lawmakers will be on hand in record numbers for the speech in the House of Representatives in Washington, DC, thanks to a surge of liberal women who were elected to the body in November. Many of the newly sworn-in women are expected to wear white as a feminist statement.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will sit just over the president’s shoulder on the dais ― even as she goes head-to-head with Trump over funding for his border wall, which threatens to shut down the government again when the temporary reopening expires on Feb. 15.
On the floor of the house will be many Trump-unfriendly female faces, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, and Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. All three freshman lawmakers have called for Trump’s impeachment, and Tlaib emphasized her support for the idea by calling him a “motherfucker” right after taking office.
Meanwhile, two female Central American immigrants who worked for Trump without legal documentation will be among the guests sitting in the gallery above his head.
The immigrant women both went public last December about their years tending Trump’s golf clubs. Victorina Morales, who is Guatemalan, worked at a club in New Jersey; and Sandra Diaz, a 46-year-old Costa Rican, worked at his Bedminster club. Moralez had told The New York Times that she came forward through their shared immigration attorney because she was upset by Trump’s hardline rhetoric on immigration.
“We are tired of the abuse, the insults, the way he talks about us when he knows that we are here helping him make money,” said Moralez, who is still in the country illegally, whereas Diaz has been granted residency. “We sweat it out to attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation.”
Now an invited guest of Democratic Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman of New Jersey at the State of the Union, Moralez sought to dictate immigration policy to Trump in an interview with The Independent on Friday.
“Forget about the wall, stop separating families and focus on immigration reform,” she scolded the president.
I hope in his #SOTU, @realDonaldTrump finally acknowledges the real face of immigrants in the US – woman & children fleeing violence; law-abiding, tax-paying people. If he can't, I've invited Ms. Morales so that he can look her in her eyes and tell his lies to a familiar face.

After Trump’s address, failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams was slated to give the Democrats’ response. Liberals have expressed enthusiasm for the choice. Feminist activist Amy Siskind last week went as far as to call for a boycott Trump’s speech so that Abrams would have the better TV ratings.
Hi everyone –
It’s time to organize again and make sure Stacey Abrams gets higher ratings than the liar-in-chief for the #SOTU– just like we did with his Oval Office address of lies.
Spread the word: keep your tv off until Stacey speaks!
