The guests President Donald Trump invited to hear his Tuesday night address to a joint session of Congress will represent four issues: border security, school choice, small businesses, and Justice Antonin Scalia’s Supreme Court legacy.

Per a White House press release, Trump invited family members of three people who were murdered by illegal immigrants, a beneficiary of school choice, a woman whose life was saved by a small pharmaceutical company, and the widow of the late Scalia.

Trump invited Jessica Davis, the widow of Detective Michael Davis, and Susan Oliver, the widow of Deputy Sheriff Danny Oliver. A twice-deported illegal immigrant killed both men in 2014 while they were in the line of duty.

The Davis-Oliver bill was drafted in honor of the two slain officers and is intended to increase cooperation between local, state, and federal governments to enforce immigration laws, Fox News reported. The bill was sponsored by then Sen. Jeff Sessions and introduced in 2015, but ultimately died in the 114th Congress.
