Rep. Steve King Decries Supposed "Invasion" Of 11,000 Illegal Immigrants Per Night

Speaking on the House floor today, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) claimed that 11,000 illegal immigrants cross into the United States every single night. That would mean that more than four million people enter the United States illegally every year. King's numbers, however, are way off. The Pew Hispanic Center estimates that approximately 500,000 illegal immigrants per year — or less than 1,400 per night — came to the United States between 2005 and 2008.

In Rep. King's World, Republicans Aren't Blocking Unemployment Extensions

Last night on the House floor, Democratic members held a colloquy upbraiding the GOP for systematically blocking emergency unemployment benefit extensions in the middle of a recession. Rep. Steve King (R-IA) took offense, explaining that Republicans aren't to blame because they "don't have the votes to block anything." The notion that Republicans haven't blocked benefits for the unemployed is ridiculous on its face. As this timeline shows, the GOP have repeatedly placed deficit fears above the needs of out-of-work Americans, all while denigrating the work ethic of those who rely on unemployment insurance in this economy.

Steve King Grasping At Straws To Justify "Default Mechanism" Charge

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) is latching onto accusations of racial bias in the Justice Department as a validation of his claim that President Obama has an anti-Caucasian "default mechanism" in his decision making. Those accusations come from former DOJ lawyer J. Christian Adams, who was hired during the Bush administration. Unfortunately for race-baiters like King, Adams is not a credible source, and his charges do not stand up to scrutiny. What King calls "compelling evidence" is factually wrong and based completely on one man's biased testimony.

Rep. King: Speaker Pelosi, Democrats Encouraged Terrorists To Kill Americans 44 Times in 2007-8

Iowa Republican Steve King channeled Dick Cheney on Tuesday night, claiming that after the Democrats retook Congress in 2006 they held 44 different votes to "unfund, underfund or undermine" American soldiers. In the Cheney/King universe, any opposition to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq gets more Americans killed.
