The president and members of Congress are picking guests who highlight their policy views for tonight’s presidential address to a joint session of Congress, reports Yahoo News’ Chris Wilson: “The White House announced that six guests would be joining first lady Melania Trump at the address. Half of that group have lost family members in killings by undocumented immigrants.” Meanwhile, “Many Democrats have invited guests who benefited from the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and the proposed DREAM Act to draw a contrast to the president’s messaging and policies.” And Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), invited Tom Perez, the former labor secretary, who just beat him out for the post of chair of the Democratic National Committee. Democratic women will wear white at the Trump speech tonight, to highlight their disputes with the administration on women’s issues and situate themselves in the history of women’s political activism.
