Rep. Steve King (R-IA) has become the go-to guy on immigration for the Republicans. Earlier he helpfully explained to Univision that comparing undocumented immigrants to a “good bird dog” was a compliment. Now he’s telling us that for every one of those children brought into the country by their parents and trying to get ahead through the DREAM Act, there are ten kids smuggling pot.
King: It doesn’t mean there aren’t groups of people in this country I have sympathy for. I do. And there are kids being brought into this country by their parents unknowing that they’re breaking the law. And they will say to me and others who defend the rule of law: we have to do something about the 11 million, and some of them are valedictorians.
Well my answer to that is — and by the way their parents brought them in it wasn’t their fault — it’s true in some cases, but they aren’t all valedictorians. They weren’t all brought in by their parents.For every one who’s a valedictorian, there’s another hundred out there that weigh 130 pounds and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’ve been hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert.
If you want to know why the majority of Hispanics are Democrats, this guy is one of the reasons. He should be on the payroll of the DNC.
