The Only Time President Trump Really Got Booed During His Address to Congress

President Donald Trump was booed once during his first joint address to Congress, when he brought up a new immigration crime office.

As Trump warned of violence committed by undocumented immigrants, he said he would establish a new office to help the victims. “I have ordered the Department of Homeland Security to create an office to serve American victims,” the President said Tuesday night. “The office is called VOICE: Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement. We are providing a voice to those who have been ignored by our media, and silenced by special interests.”

The comment drew audible boos from the audience. Trump brought multiple people as his guests to the joint address who had family members killed by undocumented immigrants, including Jamiel Shaw, who he often referenced on the campaign trail.
