The Pick of the Litter
By Emma X
Even I think dogs are better
than some people.
The irony is that both issues, animal rights and illegal status, are sort of the same for Steve. He has publicly compared illegal immigrants to dogs, and failed to see the hatred in the metaphor. "U.S. immigration law should only allow the 'best' immigrants into the country," says Steve, "similar to the way dog buyers would chose the 'pick of the litter'." It is clear to anyone who examines Mr. King's illustrious legislative career that he much prefers European breeds to the Central American variety.
In January, King re-introduced his 'anchor babies' legislation, proposing the removal of citizenship of children born in America to illegal immigrant parents (co-sponsor of the bill was friend of the blog Louie Gohmert of Texas). Forget that people born on American soil are American citizens according to the Constitution. Steve says they must be hunted down like dogs and deported. He rejects criticism like a hound rolling in dirt to get pesky flys off his back, and why shouldn't he? No one is stopping him. His amendments are being approved. His peers continue without fail to toss him a bone every time he barks.
|Mr. King went so far as to design a model border|
fence to present to Congress. It can be electrified if needed;
not to the degree that it would kill someone, but it would act
as a deterrent. He knows it will work, he says, because "we
do that with dogs".
It's not like the current proposed legislation is strong. It's sole purpose is to try to get Latino voters to view the Republican Party favorably. Everyone knows their heart is not in it, and like-minded conservatives have already watered it down to the point of absurdity, introducing border protection requirements that would be impossible to achieve. Steve King seems to want to further rub our noses in it, and his fellow legislators won't make it a dog fight.
Recently the College Republican National Committee published the results of an extensive poll conducted to determine how young Latino voters feel about the Republican Party. It was titled, "Grand Old Party for a Brand New Generation". The bottom Line? Latino voters tend to think that the GOP could not care less about them. Words associated with the GOP were "close-minded, racist, rigid and old fashioned". So, Reince, don't spend more millions to find out why. Just take a good look at Steve King. He's your top dog in the fight.

Legal or not, their first life lesson is about their value to
America. 'B' is for Border, 'C' is for Control, and 'D' is
