This entire Congressional session, House Republicans have refused to take action on real immigration reform, preferring to vote multiple times in favor of ending DACA and deporting DREAMers. The latest of these votes came last week and the House Republican driving them has been super-extremist Rep. Steve King (R-IA).
Since King has been so eager to take DACA away from more than half a million DREAMers, Erika Andiola of DRM Action confronted King in Iowa Monday night and asked him if he had the guts to personally take away hers.
Handing him her DACA card, Erika said, “I know you want to get rid of DACA. I want to give you the opportunity, if you really want to get rid of it, just rip mine. You can go ahead and do that.”
King refused, saying that he did not comment about personal cases. At one point in their discussion, King actually told Erika, “You’re very good at English,” to which she snapped back, “I was raised in the United States.”
Also coming under scrutiny is Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), whom King was dining with, who promptly booked it as soon as Erika announced that she is a DREAMer.
