5:32 pm
citizenship for some 1.8 million undocumented immigrants brought here illegally which their children. in two excerpts released by the white house the president will say on immigration as follows "struggling communities, especially immigrant communities will also be helped by immigration policies that focus on the best interests of american workers and american too many lis. "the president will go on to say so tonight i am extending an open hand to work with both parties, democrats and republicans to protect our citizens of every background, color and creed. there will, of course, be an emphasis on the economy, not just statistics but mo meantum and renewed american confidence and on national security the president will emphasize territorial losses by i.s.i.s. and continued confrontation both diplomatic and economic with north korea. jeff. >> glor: major, thank you very much. more than a dozen democrats are boycotting the president's speech. many others will protest in different way. here's nancy cordes.
5:33 pm
>> reporter: president trump will look out on a sea of black tonight, a nod from house democrats to the movement against harassment. >> we regard president trump as offender in chief, sexual assaulter in chief. >> reporter: gwen moore represents milwaukee. he has denied those allegations, of course. >> that-- it is his prerogative to deny them, and it's our prerogative to believe the 19, 20 women who have said ueherwise. >> reporter: the guests they've chose are meant to send a message, too. re you are the pride of america. ( applause ) >> reporter: many democrats are bringing so-called dreamers. ausehe state of the union is better because of the dreamers. >> reporter: arizona republican paul gosar, does not agree. he contacted u.s. capitol police and the attorney general today, urging them to check i.d. at tonight's address, and arrest
5:34 pm
any illegal aliens in attendance. >> i would say to the congressman, "you try it." ( laughter ) >> reporter: as for the speech itself, democrats are already bracing for an economic victory lap. >> two words i don't think we'll hear tonight on the economy: "thanks, obama." >> glor: all right, nancy with us here now. democrats have selected someone izth a very recognizable last name to deliver the response tonight. tell us about him and why he was wlected. r: reporter: that's right. 37 is 37-year-old massachusetts congressman joseph kennedy. he is in his third term. he is a former peace corps volunteer and an assistant d.a., and he was chosen, jeff, because democrats see him as a contrast in every way to president trump, and like his famous grandfather, robert kennedy, he's got a way with words. in fact, some of his speeches from the health care debate last year reviewed online millions of times. >> glor: all right, nancy cordes, i will see you during che speech in just a short time. thank you very much. republican senator marco rubio of florida gave the opposition
5:35 pm
response five years ago when barack obama was president. and earlier today, i talked to the senator about the battle iger immigration, which led to a government shutdown this month. ssasked him if he thinks progress is being made. >> who would have thought two years ago that conservative republicans were prepared to do a pathway to citizenship, you know? pd that's progress. and i've also seen some willingness on the part of my democratic colleagues to do more on the border. ofthink the hang-ups are some of these other issues that are there. but the progress is there is willingness across the board to get something done. but right now, aligning the gives and the takes has been difficult. >> glor: what's the biggest hang-up to a deal right now? >> i think the biggest hang-up is understanding exactly what it is we think citizenship is paired with. my-- i think my view is the white house's position is that citizen-- he's prepared to do citizenship as long he's able to
5:36 pm
riange the makeup of migration to only the nuclear family. i think many democrats would argue, no citizenship is for the thll, or for border security. so we've got to figure that part out. io we do, that then the other k eces start falling into place. >> glor: final question, how do you think the president has done in his first year i would say if you take on a blank piece of paper and write out the achievements -- the unemployment, tax reform-- 250 pimpanies have announced bonuses and raises-- and you just put that on a blank piece of paper, you would say that's an extraordinary first year. and you see that reflected in the financial markets. the problem is, you know, the focus is on the other stuff, you know, the tweet in the morning, .he statement in the afternoon. and it's distracted from those achievements. but that's who the president is. he's very unconventional. that's why he won, and he's not going to change. >> reporter: john dickerson, gayle king, norah o'donnell and i will bring you live coverage of the state of the union address, the democratic response as well, beginning at 9:00 eastern, 8:00 central.

the president does have five days to decide whether to make public a classified memo on the russia investigation. the republican majority on the house intelligence committee voted yesterday to release it. re memo, written by republicans and based on classified intelligence, alleges the f.b.i. and the justice department aggaged in surveillance abuses against members of the trump campaign. more on this now from jeff pegues. >> there may have been malfeasance by people at the f.b.i. >> reporter: today, house speaker paul ryan brushed off questions about whether republicans are intentionally railroading the investigation. >> first, there are legitimate questions about whether an american's civil liberties were violated. >> reporter: democrats responded angrily. >> i don't know if this is some kind of sick game. >> reporter: for now, the bitter partisan divides that threatened to sidetrack the investigation into whether the trump campaign coordinated with russian operatives during the 2016 aections.
5:38 pm
>> russia - if you're listening. >> the four-page classified republican memo was voted out of the house intelligence committee along party lines. the document alleges surveillance abuses by the f.b.i. on members of the trump campaign in 2016. ismocrats have written their own ten-page memo to counter house republicans' claims. isn't transparency a good thing, especially with an investigation pake this one? >> transparency is always a good thing, but this is not transparency. this is a misleading document where they're hiding the underlying materials. >> reporter: adam schiff, a clnking democrat on the r mmittee, says republicans are trying to undermine the special counsel's russia probe. ac i think there's a real fear, as mueller gets closer to the inner circle of the white house, they throw up more and more by way of distraction. >> reporter: the president has five days to review the document. already, white house sources have signaled that mr. trump wants it released. and there are concerns that could jeopardize national security by exposing sources and methods. last week, the justice department warned that making
5:39 pm
that document public would be extraordinarily reckless. jeff. >> glor: jeff pegues with the latest on this memo. jeff, thank you. the audience in the house gallery tonight will include school teacher ivonne orozco, a guest of new mexico senator martin heinrich. she is a dreamer, brought to the u.s. illegally as a child, and manuel bojorquez visited her classroom in albuquerque. >> what makes an ideal community member? >> reporter: 27-year-old ivonne orozco, teaches at the high school in albuquerque. she was recently named new mexico's teacher of the year but was brought into the country illegally by her parents from mexico when she was 12. she is a daca recipient, one of close to 9,000 undocumented teachers working across the n ited states. talking about immigration is sometimes part of the lesson plan. tiw often are these conversations happening? >> you know, most of what we do in the classroom is very
5:40 pm
academic. bu's not an everyday thing. hat when they do happen, i like s make sure that we do have a safe space where students can express all of the things that they are carrying in their hearts. ixthello, buenos dias. >> reporter: we joined her sixth period class to see what that looks like. >> we are going to focus on the topic of immigration in our community today. how does it affect your everyday life? what does it look like for you personally? >> when i was younger, i didn't really recognize immigration as . very big issue. i saw it very black and white. i was like, "oh, that's illegal. it's just illegal." >> okay, i'm an immigrant myself. next month, i'm going to have to miss school for, like, i don't even know how long, because i'm in the process of being a citizen. so i have to, like, go to mexico and do an interview and stuff. and i basically have to wait tiere until they, like, approval so i can come back. >> it's really stressful because i consider my friends as family,
5:41 pm
and knowing that they can be taken from school or home, like, y ares me. >> my mom and my dad were being sreatened of getting deported. i remember my mom, she came up to me and she said, "could you write a letter on the back of this saying how much you want us to be a family"? and at the time i didn't know what it was going to be used for, but i did it anyway. but, no, it was, like-- it was for a court, and she wanted to faow it to the court to be like, "please, don't break up my family." and now when i look back on it, it's really hard thinking how close we had been to losing both of my parents. >> around this time last year, my own father was deported. it was the worst thing in the world to see, to be at the
5:42 pm
airport when he had to leave. he now lives in-- i'm sorry. he lives in monterey with his parents, and i haven't been able to see them in two years. it's just really hard to know that other people around me can ak taken as easily as he was, especially my own teacher. >> i just want to say that the space that you guys have created in this class, i just so appreciate it. >> reporter: what about parents out there who see this and think, "you're injecting politics into the classroom?" >> the parents here at my school ave been incredibly supportive. often, teachers are seen as people who should be, you know, objective and only here for the
5:43 pm
academics, right. my classroom is a space where students can freely express themselves and, also, explore all of these really hot-topic issues. >> reporter: but people will argue that some immigrants might not be in the best interest of the country, and that extending legal status to someone like you is essentially saying, "hey, come in, legally or not." >> most people that are here working as immigrants, you know, they're just really contributing to their communities. we are teachers. we are doctors. we are the people that are giving back to our communities every single day. >> glor: manuel bojorquez in albuquerque tonight. orosco's daca status expires in less than a year. if it isn't extended, she likely will not be abe to continue teaching.

5:48 pm
contain rising health care costs. in essence, they will try to kill off what berkshire hathaway's c.e.o. warren buffet called "the hungry tapeworm on the american economy." >> glor: of course, the big question, jill, is how exactly do you do this? >> well, there are scant details, but they point to leveraging technology and the power of their 1 million toployees to provide simplified health care at a reasonable cost. and this new health care company would run as a service to employees without the need to generate a profit. that would be bad news for pharmacy benefit managers, big ibains, drug distributors, and health insurance companies, which plunged 3% to nearly 7% on rie announcement. clearly, investors are worried that amazon is about to disrupt yet another business. >> glor: jill schlesinger with more on what could be a huge change in the future of health are. jill, thanks. >> sure.
