'You Came from a Lawless Country; Do Not Import Lawlessness into America,' Rep. King Tells Illegal Alien
Rep. Steve King (R-Ky.) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) were interrupted while dining on burgers at a fundraiser in Iowa by two DREAMers, Erika Andiola & Cesar Vargas.
Erika Andiola says to King: "I'm actually a DREAMer myself. I'm originally from Mexico, but I've been raised here. I went to Arizona State University. I know you want to get rid of DACAs, I really want to give you the opportunity 'cause you really want to get rid of it, just rip mine," Andiola tells King as she hands him her identification card. "Go ahead and do that."
DACA, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, exempts children of illegals from deportation, allowing them to work in the U.S. for two-year periods. On Friday, King voted to end the program.
While she's saying this, Sen. Paul ditches his half-eaten hamburger and leaves (but he makes sure to take his drink with him.) Which is the only logical reaction in this situation, because the video back-and-forth shows the inanity of arguing here.
King tells them that, while they may have come to the U.S. to escape a "lawless country," they broke American laws to do so, instead of going through legal channels. Thus, they have no respect for U.S. laws, he says.
"You came from a lawless country; do not import your lawlessness to America," Rep. King tells the illegal aliens.
(Sergio Gor, a representative for Paul, said he had to leave so quickly because he had a "media avail after the event and that's where we had to be.") In other words, anywhere but there.
