Steve King: Immigrants will "erode the law further" by voting Democratic

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) has never been shy about his staunch opposition to any and all forms of immigration reform purely on the grounds that it might be damaging to his political ambitions, but this is the most plainly he has ever stated it.

At a panel discussion on immigration policy today, King once again asserted that Democrats support bipartisan immigration reform because undocumented immigrants would "vote for a more liberal agenda."

According to King, this in turn, "erodes the law further."

"When people break the law to come here and we reward them with breaking the law, then they think that's all right to break another law. It breeds disrespect for the law. We cannot be a great nation if we are going to willfully destroy the rule of law, especially for political purposes."

With this statement, King is hoping America will forget two things.

  1. Undocumented immigration is considered a misdemeanor.
  2. Lack of legal recognition is precisely the problem.

King is living in a magical fantasy land where undocumented immigrants will continue to live in fear of the law after they are recognized, and where deportation does not shield the actual criminals from full legal repercussions.

One more thing: No matter how inconvenient it is for King's political ambitions, voting for a Democrat is not a criminal offense.
