WASHINGTON, DC. - Donald Trump is going full-steam ahead with his immigration agenda, catering to his base with tough talk and trying to force a difficult choice on Democrats who have promised to protect immigrant communities.

Trump’s State of the Union speech was notable for its emphatic rhetoric on illegal immigration and for the significant time devoted to the topic.

The president offered little by way of an olive branch to Democrats, instead repeating an existing White House proposal and — in the single most memorable line of the night — insisting “Americans are dreamers too.”

The effort to press ahead with the hard-line approach that Trump enunciated during his 2016 campaign is backed by many people in his orbit.
