Schumer Gives King Credit for Blocking Amnesty
Washington, DC – Congressman Steve King released the following statement in response to Democrat New York Senator Chuck Schumer’s speech on the Senate floor last night attacking King on immigration:
"I'm flattered by Schumer's attempt to insult me, yet give me 100% of the credit for blocking his amnesty bill and agenda," said King. "But his speech was really an attempt to goad Speaker Boehner into moving amnesty on the floor of the House. Schumer knows, and must think Republicans do not, that moving amnesty would destroy Republican unity and our opportunity to gain the majority in the Senate this Fall. Schumer knows that, if John Boehner takes his bait and succeeds in passing any form of amnesty, we will not see the Rule of Law restored within the lifetime of this Republic. I repeat, we have to man the watchtowers 24/7."
