There will be lots of dreamers in the gallery at President Trump’s state of the union address Tuesday.All of Oregon’s Congressional Delegation, except lone Republican Representative Greg Walden, will bring or send DACA recipients as their guests.

Last year, President Trump announced he would end the DACA program, which would affect 11-thousand young immigrants in Oregon.

Representative Peter DeFazio says he never attends the address. He is, however, sending Lane Community College student and DACA recipient Jesus Santiago as his guest.
