Every year, as the State of the Union address looms, both parties make a big to-do about who they’re inviting as guests.

I’ll admit I’ve come to loathe this inexorable, meretricious process, even when the Republicans were sticking it to President Barack Obama, although their choices were usually better.

Take 2016, for instance, when then-Speaker Paul Ryan invited the Little Sisters of the Poor — the Catholic group at the center of a challenge to Obamacare’s birth control requirements — to sit in his box during the address.

This year, the takeaway from the Democrats is that they’re prioritizing those who broke the law to enter or stay in the country to work — provided, of course, those individuals worked somewhere in the Trump Organization.

“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.)

However, at least 12 illegal immigrants were fired by the Trump National Golf Club in Westchester County, New York. The Trump Organization has pledged to use E-verify in the future.

Watson Coleman, meanwhile, claimed this was proof the president had made his fortune off the backs of what seems to be a handful of illegal immigrants.

“President Trump justified shutting the government down for five weeks by demonizing immigrants as the scourge of the country and the root of our nation’s crime and insecurity,” she said in a statement.

“Meanwhile, CEO Trump led a company that has relied extensively on the hard work of undocumented immigrants like my constituent Victorina to keep his resorts clean and his putting greens trimmed. Donald Trump wants to build silly walls to stop the same immigrants that he’s made a career and a fortune from exploiting. …

“I hope that in his State of the Union address, Donald Trump will finally acknowledge the real face of immigrants in this country — women and children fleeing violence, law-abiding, tax-paying people who would do almost anything to be Americans.

“And if he can’t, I’ve invited Victorina so that he may look her in her eyes to tell his lies to a familiar face.”

Even for a member of Congress — a body where lying and demagogy are the rule and not the exception, particularly on the fringes — that dumpster conflagration of tired Democrat tropes and naked sentimentality is unique in just how wrong and how maudlin it manages to be in so few words.

First the erroneous: Trump obviously didn’t hire Morales, nor did any of his children or his top lieutenants or anyone who knows them. The idea that she would be “a familiar face” is an absurdity. We don’t know that Morales was fleeing violence, and most illegal immigrants aren’t.

As for the “law-abiding” part, the reason we call illegal aliens illegal is that they’ve broken a law; whether or not Watson Coleman agrees with that law is irrelevant in the matter. Conflating illegal immigrants with immigrants as a whole — notice when Watson Coleman implies that Morales is “the real face of immigrants in this country” — is an insult to immigrants who follow the law.

Oh, and at present, 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.

Merriam-Webster might also quibble with Coleman’s use of the word “constituent,” as it defines the word (at least in terms of its relation to a polity) as “a body of citizens entitled to elect a representative (as to a legislative or executive position)” or “the residents in an electoral district.” Morales cannot vote nor be a resident in a strict sense in the district, although she can be said to physically be there (and, since this is New Jersey, be in absolutely no danger of being removed).

All this proves is that, like many establishments in the service industry, the Trump Organization wasn’t as stringent about E-verify as it should have been. That appears to have changed, if under pressure.

As for the Democrats, they were for those “silly walls” before they were against them, and the shift was mostly due to identity politics becoming the official creed of the political left.

This entire statement was designed to obfuscate the fact Morales broke the law by coming into this country and that Americans, by in large, support the law she broke.

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.

      Absolutely! She has broken the law. Arrest her and while you are at it, arrest Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman for aiding and abetting an illegal.

    If she is “Law Abiding” how does she explain being illegal? If she is truly a tax payer, where did she get her social security number and has anyone bothered to check. If the Democratic Rep is inviting her, is she not aiding and assisting a criminal to attend a secured government function? There are so many questions about this and other moves by the Democratic party, I don’t know where to start. Partisan fighting is one thing, but this congress is the most dysfunctional mess in History (in my humble opinion).

        I read the article about this woman. She claims the resort staff told her where she could go to get fake papers. Obviously, they should not have done that, and presumably, they will be punished if they did. However, she made the choice to go get the fake papers and use them to get and keep the job, knowing full well it was illegal. Sorry, I’m not feeling sympathetic for her poor life choices.

      Democrats do not have the mental or moral capacity to answer the questions you have raised. Every Democrat in this country should be forced to have the word “traitor” permanently stamped on their empty heads.

      Wonder how long this newly established friendship with the illegal will last? My bet is that the grandstanding Democrat will not say boo to her ever again.

        You are exactly right! DemonRATS use and abuse people for their own grandstanding. They don’t care about illegal aliens just like they don’t care about USA citizens. DemonRATS are demonRATS.

      Best idea yet! I think ICE should be invited there to speak about the lies Democrats tell, when they don’t even know what they’re talking about! Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and mostly all of the Democrats have no idea of what it’s like to be harrassed by an Illegal, because if they did, they would not be so anxious to allow them to come here!

      INVITE A TEAM OF ICE AGENTS, BORDER PATROL STAFF, AND THE ANGEL FAMILIES. LET THEIR PRESENCE IN THE MOST IMPORTANT EVENT AS THE STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS BE ACKNOWLEDGED. THEY ARE HEROES IN THEIR OWN SPECIAL WAY. THEY DESERVE RECOGNITION FOR THEIR VALOR AND DEDICATION. THEY ARE THE TRUE PATRIOTIC AMERICANS.

    Nothing could be finer than to arrest her on the spot, turn her over to ICE and wave ADIOS with a smirk on his face!!!!
    MAGA!! Build the wall!!
    TRUMP 2020!!

    U.S. Border Patrol Makes Biggest Fentanyl Bust in U.S. History 254 lbs. being smuggled across our border. Enough to kill 1/14 of the population of the United States. Yes there is a crisis and we need to declare a national emergency.

    Democrats have always rolled out people to use for propaganda remember when crying Chuck did it using criminals to get your message across doesn’t seem smart to me the same old same old and same establishment democrats pushing the same agenda as always they don’t use black Americans as much because they have woken up to the democrat party plantation control so the new base of the democrat party is illegal immigrants black Americans are put in jail for lesser crimes than democrats criminal activities democrat party completely ignores America’s laws something that dictators do to take control of the country

    “Those silly walls”. I wonder if she lives behind one in “Joisy”?? New jersey is one of the most crime ridden states in the union. Anyone who has money lives in a walled and guarded community. BTW, if walls are “silly” then those people in prison must be laughing their collective asses off.

    Sorry but as a business man with so many companies he relies on management to deal with employees. Trump can not be held responsible for the few illegals out of hundreds of employees. For that matter Pelosi should bring along her own illegals that she uses to profit from her vineyard. She is such a scheming two faced skank. They should not be allowed in and arrested for deportation. Pelosi and all sitting Democrats in the house should be charged with treason and aiding known criminals to freely cross our border.

    —- They that come into our country illegally, are not “illegal immigrants”, “undocumented immigrants”, or “immigrants” of any stripe. They are by U.S. law, “illegal aliens”. To name them “immigrants” is to confer on them a quasi-legal status that they have neither earned or deserve.

    Nothing could be clearer than the Democrats inviting illegal immigrants to the State of the Union Address because that’s who they represent. They aren’t representing the voters in their districts who elected them but instead they’re representing law breakers who defy our immigration laws!

    More conclusive proof that stupid people continue to say and do stupid things in their attempt to garner the attention they so dearly crave but do not deserve. Homeland Security should advise ICE to be there to arrest this person as soon as she is identified.

    have border patrol there to arrest them who knows they may have never showed up for their court hearings after being allowed to illegal enter the US shows how much Democrats care for even the illegals to risk getting them arrested and deported. Democrats just using them and hoping that they will then vote illegally or if they get citizenship legally for the dems

    And now that this ‘illegal’ is here, complete with phony SSN, she was appropriately fired–has she sought to become LEGAL RESIDENT? ICE should be on duty and fulfill their duty to arrest her and get her out now. I think everyone would be happy except maybe the stupid demonrats who are staging this fiasco to try to embarrass our president. It will only make them look like the fools they are to those who know what is going on.

    This shows that President Trump is not a hypocrite. He sticks to what he believes in and does not waiver. If it is true that this illegal will be at the State of the Union Address, does this mean she cannot be touched by ICE? Then there is the fact that is ILLEGAL to harbor a fugitive from the law so take Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman to jail, as well. If Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman invited this particular illegal to the State of the Union Address, my question is WHY? This illegal was not fired, she just didn’t come back to work on her attorney’s advice!! lol Those aliens that came to America legally, I have volumes of respect for. Those who came here illegally are the ones I feel should be sent back. The Democrats keep saying that this is a country of immigrants. Yes it is! The immigrants in the past came into Ellis Island, mostly, and were PERMITTED ENTRY TO THIS COUNTRY! These crossing the Rio Grande, the illegals, should have no say about their future in America and those who scream, holler and cry about the illegals have not broken any laws? THE FREAKING WALKED INTO THIS COUNTRY ILLEGALLY BECAUSE THERE WAS NOTHING TO STOP THEM! Ms. Steinle and many other good, honest Americans trying to “live the American dream” were murdered by illegals. In Ms. Steinle’s case, the murderer got away with the murder, in my opinion! Democrats care more about their “ILLEGALS” then they do for their constituents!

    Now is the time to arrest them for election fraud and the ones that invited them. Why do we invite illegals to come and how do the get clearance to get in for the event? Time to think of good American citizens to come instead of a bunch of illegals. (Maybe they were give legalization through Obama without going through the system – who knows.)

    The “Take Care Clause” (or “Faithful Execution Clause”) demands that these illegal aliens be arrested when they enter the Capitol building (or even before) and be subjected to the laws of this country PASSED BY CONGRESS that they are violating. I wonder if the democrats are also violating the law? if so, Constitution demands they be arrested as well.
