More than half of Congress stood up and applauded his call for immigration reform, including El Monte Congresswoman Judy Chu, co-sponsor of the Democrats' bill on the matter. Speaking in the Capitol's Statuary Hall after the speech, Chu said the President "pushed as hard as he could on the issue, and he tried to do it in a way that would not alienate anybody. And I think that was extremely important at this point in time."
