In other SOTU news, Congressman Marc Veasey (TX-33) is taking a leading DREAM Activist, Julieta Garibay, as his guest to the speech tonight. Garibay is a co-founder of UT's University Leadership Initiative, an organization of undocumented students that promotes education and civic engagement to immigrants. Garibay will be one of the first, if not the first known undocumented immigrants to attend the State of the Union. Kudos to Marc Veasey for bringing this inspiring young leader to the big speech tonight. The Dallas Morning News has more.
