FWD.us campaign leader

GOP Rep. Steve King (IA-4) doubled down on his awful and absurd claim that most DREAMers are drug mules by refusing to apologize for his inflammatory remarks.

We know that DREAMers - undocumented immigrants brought to our country as children - are hardworking young people who contribute to our communities every day, but in an interview with the Spencer Daily Reporter, he said “I’m not going to apologize. What I’ve said is objectively true, and any time that Republicans have criticized me, it’s not because of what I said, it’s because they disagree with my agenda.”

This is exactly the type of anti-immigrant rhetoric that we can’t allow to dominate the debate. Passing immigration reform in 2014 would strengthen the American economy and do right by American families, and would allow millions of undocumented immigrants to contribute more fully to their communities.
