Representative Steve King Comments Follow Up With Certain Position Removal

Representative (Rep. of Iowa) Steve King has always urged the public not to sympathize with Dreamers or undocumented immigrants who entered the U.S. as children. But last week Rep. Steve King suggested that he has witnessed various undocumented immigrants smuggling drugs across the border during his watch as a border security patrol. These false statements from the Representative has followed up w...ith petitions calling to remove Steve King from a House subcommittee on immigration and has attracted over 100,000 total signatures. Following that, a Credo petition to strip King of his seat on the subcommittee has garnered over 40,000 signatures and a removal of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration Policy and Border Security that has overpassed 76,000 signatures. As King continues to be processed for removal of certain said positions he continues to claim, "There's no question that my comments were anything but ignorant."
