In his “State of the Union” (SOTU) Democrat response address on Tuesday night, Rep. Joe Kennedy III (D-MA) spoke Spanish to illegal aliens, promising to put them first in a legislative agenda led by Democrats.
“And to all the Dreamers out there watching tonight, let me be absolutely clear, ustedes son parte de nuestra historia vamos a luchar por ustedes y no los vamos a dejar,” Kennedy said in Spanish. “You are part of our story. We will fight for you and we will not walk away.”

Kennedy made delivered the comments towards illegal aliens who are enrolled and eligible for the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which will officially end in March 2018, making the nearly 800,000 illegal aliens enrolled in the program eligible for deportation.
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.
Breitbart News’ Joel Pollak said Kennedy’s speaking Spanish to DACA illegal aliens contradicts Democrats’ narrative that the DACA population is fully assimilated to American life.
.@RepJoeKennedy addresses "Dreamers" in Spanish. But we are told that these "kids" are as American as anyone else & can't relate to their countries of origin. Exactly the wrong way to convince the rest of America to agree to a compromise. Identity politics over pragmatism. #SOTU

Every year, the U.S. admits more than 1.5 foreign nationals, with the vast majority deriving from family-based chain migration, whereby newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S. In 2016, the legal and illegal immigrant population reached a record high of 44 million. By 2023, the Center for Immigration Studies estimates that the legal and illegal immigrant population of the U.S. will make up nearly 15 percent of the entire U.S. population.
Mass immigration has come at the expense of America’s working and middle class, which has suffered from poor job growth, stagnant wages, and increased public costs to offset the importation of millions of low-skilled foreign nationals.
