Congressman King, President Trump Speak Regarding Ending DACA
King outlines immigration law priorities that would restore respect for the Rule of Law
Washington, D.C.- Congressman Steve King and President Donald Trump spoke by phone yesterday evening to discuss the unconstitutional Obama-era “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA) program. During the call, Congressman King reaffirmed his opposition to DACA, an Obama-era amnesty program for illegal aliens that undermines the Rule of Law in America. King encouraged the President to keep the promise, first articulated by candidate Donald Trump on June 16, 2015, to end DACA.
After his constructive discussion with President Trump, King recorded and released the following video providing insights into his call with the president. In his remarks, King outlines an agenda of additional policy proposals he would like President Trump to incorporate into any DACA related negotiations that may occur next year. These proposals, viewed by King as essential elements of restoring respect for the Rule of Law, include: making English the official language of the United States; ensuring illegal aliens are not counted by the census for purposes of Congressional apportionment; ending tax deductions taken by employers of illegal aliens; and ending the current practice of granting automatic US citizenship upon birth to the children of illegal aliens.
