US immigrants 'living in fear' of Trump's deportation drive

Immigration remains a divisive issue before President Donald Trump's State of the Union speech to Congress.

by Rob Reynolds

US President Donald Trump will give his first State of the Union address to Congress later on Tuesday, kicking off his second year in office. He is expected to mention immigration issues in the speech.

Republicans and Democrats cannot agree on a policy that allows hundreds of thousands of young, undocumented immigrants to live and work in the US.

Many of them live in fear of deportation.
