Congressman Steve King has crossed the line.Last week, King asserted that
"for [every DREAMer] who's a valedictorian, there'sanother 100 out there who weigh 130 pounds -- and they've got calves the size of cantaloupes because they're hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert."
That ugly, hateful language has no place in our debate about immigration. Period.
If Speaker Boehner and House Republicans truly want to condemn Congressman King’sviews, it’s time for them to remove him from his positions of authority on the
Immigration Subcommittee and Judiciary Committee.
Ideas like King’s are contrary to the principles that make this country great and make
him unfit to hold an authoritative position on the Judiciary Committee.Bernardo, if you believe, like I do, that there is no place for xenophobes on theJudiciary Committee stand with me and demand Boehner take action.
Thank you for your support.Steve IsraelDCCC Chairman
