Congressman Steve King is no fan of immigration reform — nor, apparently, the democratic process. On Thursday morning, members of a youth coalition called United We Dream, which is funded by the the National Immigration Law Center (a Los Angeles non-profit), paid a perfectly legal visit to the Iowa Republican, who in his capacity
as the Vice-President a member of the House Subcommittee on Immigration has inveighed repeatedly — and beyond boisterously — against the ongoing efforts to enact immigration reform that would recognize undocumented persons already living in America. The UWD high-schoolers, dressed in graduation caps and gowns, documented their peaceful visit to King's Senate office on Capitol Hill. As part of a demonstration, they presented a pile of flip-flop sandals (Update: a photo not taken in his office) to protest the weakened resolve of Marco Rubio, King's party colleague and Gang of Eight leader, to pass his own bill.
20 brazen self professed illegal aliens have just invaded my DC office. Obama's lawless order gives them de facto immunity from U.S. law.— Steve King (@SteveKingIA) June 13, 2013
Invaded? Not quite. The UWD members appeared at his office during normal visiting hours for the Rayburn Office Building, where King's office is located.
