Democrats bringing illegals to State of the Union

Illegal immigrants are rumored to be at the top of the guest list for the State of the Union tonight. One illegal immigrant is even reportedly being escorted by the First Lady herself.

In addition to Apple CEO Tim Cook, Michelle Obama has invited 20-year-old Alan Aleman, an illegal immigrant from Nevada who hasn’t been deported because he came to the United States before he was 16 and is therefore protected under the Obama administration’s new deportation rules.

And so far, four other Democrats have revealed they are bringing an illegal immigrant as their dates, too.

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) is taking Ambar Pinto, a Northern Virginia Community College student and a 19-year-old illegal immigrant.

Rep. Marc Veasey (D-Texas) is bringing along Julieta Gariby (32) who has been in the United States since her family moved from Mexico when she was 12.

Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez (D-Ill.) invited Gabino Sanchez, a 27-year-old illegal immigrant living in South Carolina, and Rep. Kathy Castor (D-Fla.) is taking Jose Godinez-Samperio, an illegal immigrant who wants to practice law some day.Rep. Steve Stockman

These aren’t the only members of Congress making a bold statement with their SOTU guests. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is bringing a fourth-grade girl from Newtown, Conn. And just to spice it up, Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Tex.) is taking Ted Nugent, musicians and gun advocate extraordinaire.

Guess the old take-your-husband or wife thing is out this year.

    Obama is a lying A/Hole he took an oath to up hold and defend the laws of this country and he just issues executive orders to avoid not doing whatthe law demands But rather just what he wants to do.. I say round every damn Illegal up and send them packing . Ted Kennedy and LBJ knew what they where doing with their back door immigration reform act in 1965 , They flat out stopped all immigrants from Europe and went to the Caribbean Islands and and Latin countries and India Africa to push them ahead of the line Too flood on in here even Cuba dumped its prisons on us in 1979 and Carted did nothing . I see it as an invasion of my country to have it taken from myself and mine to give to others who have paid no price to walk these streets of Gold .. Why can I not own property in Mexico ? If I go there I best speak their language unlike here I’m tired of bending over and being raped by them all. I wounder how many real citizen could get into his speech if they wanted too ? I call it an invasion they call it building a voter base..

MSNBC Host: Obama’s terrorism summit is a ‘dog and pony show’
You know it’s bad when President Obama has even lost the support of MSNBC.

DCCC fundraises off shutdown that didn't happen
Democrats really jumped the gun on this one. It seems that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee was in such a hurry to fundraise over their hatred for Republicans this weekend that they were willing to spread a little misinformation to do so.
