King mistaken on immigration reform

The Gazette Opinion Staff

Recently, Fourth District Iowa Congressman Steve King spoke to a group in Cedar Rapids. King stated that he will do everything possible to defeat a bipartisan immigration reform bill that is currently being debated in the Senate.

Unless King is a full-blooded American Indian, he has no business throwing darts at a bill that could bring illegal immigration to a trickle. Too bad that the Indians didn’t send King’s forefathers back to their country they originally come from.

When our country is in a deep recession, King should be delighted, because that greatly reduces the flow of immigrants wanting to come into the United States. The only crime that many of the immigrants committed was doing more than an honest day’s work and they had to come illegally to be exploited.

This is America and kings don’t rule our country. Steve King acts like a king and everything has to be his way.
