(Washington, D.C.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) announced today that Romer Cisneros, a DREAMer from Queens, will be his guest to President Trump’s State of the Union address.

“Tonight, I have the great pleasure of welcoming Romer to the State of the Union Address. Romer, a former intern of mine, is an incredible young man who also happens to be one of 800,000 DREAMers. Romer is worth fighting for, and he is part of my motivation to find a resolution for DREAMers,” Chairman Crowley said. “I hope in his address, President Trump will deliver a strong vision for America, one that includes ways to strengthen the country through investments in health care, education, job creation, and our aging infrastructure. DREAMers like Romer also deserve an answer on their future.”

Romer and his family immigrated to the United States from Peru when he was just seven years old. Romer is a senior at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, where he is studying to be an attorney. Romer previously interned for Congressman Crowley.

"Attending the State of the Union is of great importance. I want to personally see the direction President Trump plans to take our country and express clearly the direction I, and thousands of other DREAMers, hope our country will move in," said Romer.
