    Talking Points Memo ^ | 8/21/14 | TOM KLUDT
    Rep. Steve King (R-IA) has a lot of thoughts about race in America, as he demonstrated in an interview Wednesday that touched on the protests in Ferguson, Mo., the "sin" committed by the likes of Rev. Al Sharpton and the "race card" played by the Congressional Black Caucus. The conversation started during an interview with Iowa radio host Jan Mickelson, who observed that it's important to have "courage just to say what you see, and you can't worry about being called a racist if you're just saying what you see." King agreed, and took the opportunity to address the unrest...

    The U.S. Border Patrol earlier this month arrested a 12-year-old illegal immigrant smuggling 80 pounds of marijuana from Mexico into Texas, reigniting a debate over controversial comments made by a Republican congressman earlier this year about children’s involvement in the cross-border drug trade. Rep. Steve King, an Iowa Republican who has called for a crackdown on illegal immigration, had said there were more young illegal immigrants smuggling drugs than there were ones who were valedictorians of their classes in U.S. high schools. In the Texas incident earlier this month, Border Patrol agents arrested six Mexicans — two adults, two 17-year-olds,...

    ABC News’ Rick Klein reports: Though GOP efforts to repeal President Obama’s health care law is almost certainly set to fall short, Republicans are already plotting their next steps – and are planning to use power over the government’s purse strings to block much of the law from taking effect. On ABC’s “Top Line” today, Rep. Steve King – a main co-sponsor of the repeal effort – told us that he’s not giving up on the possibility that the Senate will also repeal the law, as the House is planning to do this week. That means a new Republican president...
  • Steve King Op-Ed: The DREAM Act Is An Amnesty Bill That America Cannot Afford

    Congressman Steve King official website ^ | December 6, 2010 | Steve King
    President Obama and the liberal open-border leadership of the Democratic Party are pushing for passage of legislation granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. They are doing this despite the fact that this costly legislation will make a difficult job market worse, will place a higher tax burden on Americans, will ensure greater difficulty in balancing budgets on the state and federal level, and will undermine respect for our nation’s immigration laws. -- Congress should wake up from this nightmare by defeating the DREAM Act. In November, voters’ concerns about the weak economy and the poor job market contributed to...

    RSN: Congressman King, what can we do to take our country back? King: Well, the people have run up a new flag next to Old Glory and that is the Gadsden Flag, don’t tread on me. That is the spirit of this renewed America that we have. But what we’re doing in Congress now is basically fighting a rearguard action. We’re hanging on to the freedom we have. Now we may take some back with this new Congress, but we know we can’t sustain this unless we take the culture link to complete interview
  • King Questions Goodell on Limbaugh Comments (full version - with Rush's response)

    In an October 28, 2009 House Judiciary Committee hearing, Congressman Steve King questions NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on comments he made regarding Rush Limbaugh. VIDEO Rush's Response to Commissioner Goodell's Answer: Of course, Goodell's a total weasel. He had no answer about the Dolphins' owners so wouldn't even address the question, and he got on his high horse about how McNabb is a fine player and a fine person and it has nothing to do with the color of his skin, when I (a) never said he was not a fine person; (b) never said he was a bad QB...

    At a time when bilingual education remains entrenched in the United States, two-thirds of Hispanics polled nonetheless support making English the official U. S. language. Most lawmakers have yet to get that message, with a few notable exceptions. At the Eagle Forum Summit this past Thursday, Rep. Steve King of Iowa spoke on “an endeavor for me that goes back to 1996.” That endeavor is making English the official language of the United States. “Throughout all of history, there is nothing more powerful and unifying than a common language.” Rep. King, throughout the past decade, has done countless hours of...
