Overreaction: Rep. Steve King Pitches A Hissy Fit When DREAMers Held Peaceful Protest In His Congressional Office
Credit: Maricela Aguilar, @maricelaguilar
One week after House Republicans passed an amendment that effectively deports DREAMers, undocumented high school students held a peaceful protest in Rep. Steve King’s (R-IA) office. In their caps and gowns, the undocumented members of United We Dream occupied his office during regular hours to advocate for immigration reform.
As is his usual fashion, King overreacted, tweeting that his office was under invasion:

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.

#Gof8 You promise border security. How, when we can’t secure Congress from Obama amnesty? Schumer, McCain, come guard my door.

King regularly introduces bills to stop “anchor babies” and discriminate against non-English speakers. He has compared immigrants to dogs and livestock.
