King: Illegal Immigration Erodes America
Washington, DC- Congressman Steve King (R-IA) attended the Supreme Court Hearing on SB 1070 earlier today and released the following video from a press conference he held yesterday with former Arizona state senator Russell Pearce, the author and driving force behind SB 1070.
"Whatever the economic equation is, whatever the social equation is, turning a blind eye to illegal immigration necessarily erodes the rule of law," said King. "When that happens it erodes America. And there are millions of people who come to this country legally and even presumably illegally because they want to come to a country that has the rights and the privileges that we have. Among them- a justice that is blind, a justice that is of laws, not men. So if they leave a country that is corrupt, and come to the United States of America and it's being corrupted by people that turn a blind eye towards illegal immigration, then you've damaged the underpinnings of America."
