Texas Congressman speaks on State of the Union

Williams speaks on State of the Union - "Tonight, I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people," says President Donald Trump, during the 2018 State of the Union Address. "This is really the key. These are the people we were elected to serve."

President Donald Trump addressed Americans on future plans and accomplishments in Washington on Tuesday night. He touched on lowering prices of prescription medications and getting harsher with drug dealers and those pushing opioid pills.

Trump also said he is reversing an Obama-era promise, and will keep the U.S. Terrorist Detention Facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba open. 

The president also mentioned his Four Pillar Plan for immigration reform, hoping Congress will vote on it in the near future. The plan would give DACA recipients a path to citizenship, tighten the border and end the visa lottery system - along with chain migration. 

Texas Congressman Roger Williams says he is looking forward to a discussion on immigration reform: "And we'll have conversation about what part of that plan is best for the immigration issues. Our border, those who are involved. I even visited with some dreamers in my office, so I am hearing their issues. So it'll be more of an outline, and then we'll have a discussion."
