Democrat Rep. Announces Outrageous Guest at SOTU

Democrat Rep. Announces Outrageous Guest at SOTU Every year, as the State of the Union address looms, both parties make a big to-do about who they’re inviting as guests. “A New Jersey Democrat has invited a surprising guest to President Trump’s State of the Union address: an illegal immigrant who was fired from the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster,” Fox News reported Thursday. “Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman said Wednesday that she extended the invitation to Victorina Morales, a Guatemala-born woman who was fired from the golf property where she worked as a housekeeper for five years.” It’s worth noting that Morales wasn’t actually fired from the club, according to The Washington Post — she merely didn’t return to work on the advice of her lawyer after going public as an illegal immigrant. (As a side note, how many housekeepers have attorneys advising them on their every move? It’s almost like this was carefully orchestrated by someone. But I digress.) First the erroneous: Trump obviously didn’t hire Morales, nor did any of his children or his top lieutenants or anyone who knows them. As for the “law-abiding” part, the reason we call illegal aliens illegal is that they’ve broken a law. The number of fired illegal immigrants from the Trump Organization seems to be 12 — 13, if you count Morales’ resignation. To say that the president “made a career and a fortune from exploiting” illegal immigrants is farcical. And that’s the object lesson of this gesture: The Democrats support the lawbreakers. It’s an empty gesture, as these invitations always are, but it’s a telling one.
