Meet Joe Kennedy, who will deliver the Democrats' SOTU response

Two dozen undocumented immigrants will attend President Trump's State of the Union speech in Congress at the height of negotiations over the status of hundreds of thousands of immigrants who were brought to the United States illegally as children

Mr. Sanders, meanwhile, announced Monday he would deliver his own response to Mr. Trump on social media, just as he did during the president's address to a joint session of Congress a year ago.

Earlier Tuesday, House minority leader Nancy Pelosi of California warned Democratic lawmakers not to walk out of Trump's speech or draw attention to themselves with any disruptive protest, insisting they leave the focus on the president.

He is the grandson of Robert Kennedy, the former New York Senator who was assassinated during his 1968 run for president, and the great-nephew of JFK and late Massachusetts Senator Edward Kennedy.

Kennedy said Americans could too often face a "false choice" between demographic groups or geographic areas.

There will be the "official" Democratic response by Massachusetts Rep. Joe Kennedy, and the Spanish language response by Virginia Delegate Elizabeth Guzman.

Delivering the response to the State of the Union has been called the "worst job in politics", but it can also be an opportunity to send a strong message and claim a place on the national stage. For more on both, go here.

The party opposite of the president traditionally delivers an official response, which is also nationally televised.

The 37-year-old congressman will address the nation from a technical school in Fall River, Mass.

The problem for some people, including Linus Torvalds , was that Intel's initial response was lackluster. There are a pair of Knowledge Base articles that walk users through this manual process here and here.

Sen. Dick Durbin, of IL, the Senate's No. 2 Democrat and a key immigration negotiator, said "One part of the speech he's exalting faith and family and then when it comes to the families of those who immigrated to this country he takes exactly the opposite approach". "He will surely not be apologizing for the many lies he told American voters: how he promised to defend the interests of working people, but then sold them out to Wall Street and the billionaire class".

He volunteered with the Peace Corps.

In an Instagram post on Tuesday, she thanked Kennedy for "this awesome experience".

Neal said he hasn't spoken directly to Kennedy about his speech, but said Democrats talked about it at their Tuesday morning meeting. In Congress, he is a leading voice for LGBTQ equality, voting rights, civil rights and immigration reform. "We choose pensions that are solvent, trade pacts that are fair, roads and bridges that won't rust away, and good education you can afford", Kennedy said.

Taking a cue from Hollywood, nearly all of the Democratic women wore black in a symbolic stand against sexual harassment, honoring the "Time's Up" and "Me Too" movements.

"Somewhere down the road, if a Senate seat were to open, yeah it's something I'd certainly take a look at", he said in profile in Politico.

Despite his harsh words for the current administration and his confrontation of serious social issues like economic inequality and racism, Kennedy's conclusion was full of hope.

"But that's got to be right in time for me and my family", he said.
