Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams delivered the Democratic response to the address. Abrams slammed the recent government shutdown and spoke out against voter suppression. She also addressed gun control, climate change and immigration reform.
Stacey Abrams: “We know bipartisanship could craft a 21st century immigration plan, but this administration chooses to cage children and tear families apart. Compassionate treatment at the border is not the same as open borders.”
