Cantaloupes for King 07-25-13

DREAMers in graduation caps and gowns will deliver cantaloupes to Rep. Steve King’s (R-IA) office Thursday afternoon in protest of the congressman’s controversial statement that most DREAMers have “calves the size of cantaloupes” from “hauling marijuana.”

The DREAMers–or immigrants who came into the country as young children–are being organized by United We Dream, the largest immigrant youth network in the country.

“Congressman Steve King’s accusations are outrageous,” Cristina Jimenez, managing director of United We Dream, said in a statement.  “His insulting comments only add to his track record of extremism and his ongoing crusade against immigrants and American values of fairness, family, and opportunity.”
