All Steve King's Men http://allstevekingsmen.com Fri, 23 May 2014 19:15:38 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Steve King (R-IA) http://allstevekingsmen.com/steve-king-r-ia/ http://allstevekingsmen.com/steve-king-r-ia/#comments Wed, 04 Dec 2013 09:49:19 +0000 http://allstevekingsmen.com/?p=184 "For everyone who’s a valedictorian, there’s another 100 out there who weigh 130 pounds — and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert."]]> King Likened Visa Applicants To Dogs, Then Insisted “It Was A Compliment.” According to the Huffington Post, “Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) on Sunday stood by eyebrow-raising comments he made in May, insisting that he was praising immigrants when he compared selecting visa recipients to choosing a ‘good bird dog.’ ‘It was a compliment … They knew it was a compliment, they turned it into an insult because they’re professional hyperventilators,’ the immigration hardliner said in an interview on Des Moines NBC affiliate WHO-TV, posted by a site run by the campaign of his Democratic opponent, Christie Vilsack.” [Huffington Post, 10/21/12]

King Said For Every Dreamer “Who’s A Valedictorian, There’s Another 100 Out There Who Weigh 130 Pounds – And They’ve Got Calves The Size Of Cantaloupes Because They’re Hauling 75 Pounds Of Marijuana Across The Desert.” According to Roll Call, “Rep. Steve King is defending his comments that children who were brought to the U.S. illegally don’t deserve ‘amnesty’ because they’re not ‘all valedictorians’ despite a firestorm of criticism from Republican leaders and Democrats. [...] The Iowa Republican told the conservative website NewsMax last week that he is sympathetic to the situation in which many undocumented children find themselves. But he said those so-called DREAMers are not all created equal. ‘Some of them are valedictorians — and their parents brought them in. It wasn’t their fault. It’s true in some cases, but they aren’t all valedictorians. They weren’t all brought in by their parents.’ ‘For everyone who’s a valedictorian, there’s another 100 out there who weigh 130 pounds — and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert. Those people would be legalized with the same act.’ King said until there is some way to tell the difference between the ‘innocent ones’ and those who have been ‘undermining our culture and civilization and profiting from criminal acts,’ no one should advocate for ‘amnesty.’” [Roll Call, 7/23/13]

King Called Illegal Immigration “Slow Motion Holocaust” And Said It Has Killed More Americans Than September 11th. According to The Forward, “The ADL has been highly critical of a May 27 speech delivered by Rep. Steve King, an Iowa Republican, in which he argued that illegal immigrants have killed many more Americans since September 11, 2001, than were killed in the Al Qaeda attacks that day. King, who was speaking to a gathering of anti-immigration activists in Las Vegas, warned that ‘we have a slow motion holocaust on our hands.’…King, who has referred to Senator Joe McCarthy as a ‘great American hero,’ countered that he used the word ‘holocaust’ in a generic sense, meaning a great destruction, and that he was in no way referring to World War II.” [The Forward, 7/7/06]

King Equated Immigrants With Livestock And Proposed An Electrified Border Fence. According to The Hill, “In 2006, King went to the House Floor and built a model of a concrete border fence that he suggested should be electrified. ‘We could also electrify this wire with the kind of current that would not kill somebody, but it would simply be a discouragement for them to be fooling around with it. We do that with livestock all the time,’ King said at the time.” [The Hill, 1/7/11]

King Called For Delay Of Immigration Reform Because Of Boston Marathon Attack. According to the Washington Post, “Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) is calling for comprehensive immigration reform to be put on hold in light of Monday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon, citing speculation (since deemed misplaced) that the attacker was a student from Saudi Arabia. ‘Some of the speculation that has come out is that yes, it was a foreign national and, speculating here, that it was potentially a person on a student visa,’ King told National Review. ‘If that’s the case, then we need to take a look at the big picture.’ He added that ‘we need to be ever vigilant,’ and that security should be the focus right now, not a path to legalization. ‘If we can’t background-check people that are coming from Saudi Arabia, how do we think we are going to background check the 11 to 20 million people that are here from who knows where?’” [Washington Post, 4/16/13]

King: “The Current Practice Of Extending U.S. Citizenship To Hundreds Of Thousands Of ‘Anchor Babies’ Must End.” According to the Huffington Post, “Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), an outspoken hardliner on immigration, introduced a bill on Thursday that would ‘clarify those classes of individuals born in the United States who are nationals and citizens of the United States at birth.’ […] ‘We need a common sense solution to fix the flawed interpretation of the Constitution’s citizenship clause, and ‘The Birthright Citizenship Act of 2013′ does just that,’ he said in a statement on Friday. ‘The current practice of extending U.S. citizenship to hundreds of thousands of ‘anchor babies’ must end because it creates a magnet for illegal immigration into our country. Now is the time to ensure that the laws in this country do not encourage law breaking.’” [Huffington Post, 1/4/13]

Scott Walker (R-WI) http://allstevekingsmen.com/scott-walker-r-wi/ http://allstevekingsmen.com/scott-walker-r-wi/#comments Tue, 03 Dec 2013 16:29:48 +0000 http://allstevekingsmen.com/?p=344 According to the Associated Press:

"On the chopping block in Walker's two-year budget proposal... [is] in-state college tuition for the children of illegal immigrants."

]]>
After the 2012 elections, Republican officials nationwide agreed that the party would have to improve its standing among Latinos before the next presidential election. Unfortunately for the party’s future electoral hopes, recommendations laid out in the vaunted “autopsy” from the RNC were all but ignored as Republicans followed the lead of anti-immigrant Congressman Steve King in their attempt to kill immigration reform.

“Look to the governors” is a common refrain among Republican leaders who insist that GOP leaders in the states will magically solve the party’s problem with constituencies such as Latinos, young voters and women. Just today, however, it was reported that a campaign staffer for Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) had published shockingly offensive and racist tweets, including one threatening to “choke that illegal mex.” In damage control mode, Gov. Walker fired the staffer. The occurrence was remarkably similar to a situation this August, where another Walker employee was fired for comparing undocumented immigrants to Satan.
Walker was right to fire those employees, but he’s not out of the woods with Latino voters. Not by a long shot. When he faces voters, Walker will have to answer for dismantling tuition equality for the children of undocumented immigrants in Wisconsin.

Walker’s Reelection Campaign Fired Deputy Finance Director Taylor Palmisano For Tweeting Derogatory Comments About Hispanics.According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, “For the second time in less than four months, Gov. Scott Walker has fired an aide for making demeaning comments about Hispanics on social media. Walker — who has been calling on fellow Republicans to do more to reach out to minority voters — ousted Taylor Palmisano as his campaign’s deputy finance director on Tuesday. The first-term governor made the move after No Quarter contacted his campaign regarding the inflammatory tweets.” [Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, 12/3/13]

Palmisano Tweeted, “I Will Choke That Illegal Mex Cleaning In The Library.” According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, “In one, Palmisano, 23, complained about an individual who was doing custodial work in a library in which she was working. ‘I will choke that illegal mex cleaning in the library. Stop banging (expletive) chairs around and turn off your Walkman,’ she posted on March 9, 2011.” [Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, 12/3/13]

During A Bus Trip From California To Nevada, Palmisano Tweeted, “Nobody Speaks English & These Ppl Dont Know How 2 Control Their Kids #Only3morehours #Illegalaliens.” According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, “Two months earlier, she went to Twitter to write about her bus trip from Pasadena, Calif., to Las Vegas after watching the Wisconsin Badgers play in the Rose Bowl: ‘This bus is my worst (expletive) nightmare Nobody speaks English & these ppl dont know how 2 control their kids #only3morehours #illegalaliens.’” [Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, 12/3/13]

In August Of 2013, Walker Fired Assistant Deputy Secretary Of Transportation For Facebook Comments Comparing Illegal Immigrants To Satan. According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, “In a stunning online rant, a top Gov. Scott Walker official likened illegal immigrants to Satan during a Facebook debate over a bumper sticker declaring open season on foreigners living in the United States without documentation. ‘You may see Jesus when you look at them,’ Steven Krieser, assistant deputy secretary at the state Department of Transportation, wrote Tuesday regarding illegal immigrants. ‘I see Satan.’ […]Walker’s response was swift and dramatic. Less than two hours after his office was informed of the rant, Walker fired Krieser. He had been paid $96,628 a year as the No. 3 official at DOT.” [Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel,8/8/13]

Walker’s 2011 Budget Eliminated A Program That Grants In-State College Tuition To Children Of Undocumented Immigrants. According to the Associated Press, “The showdown over collective bargaining rights for public employees is just the first step in a contentious debate over how to solve Wisconsin’s budget woes, with newly elected Republican Gov. Scott Walker also seeking to dismantle an array of social policies enacted under his Democratic predecessor. On the chopping block in Walker’s two-year budget proposal are early release programs for prisoners, in-state college tuition for the children of illegal immigrants, mandatory insurance coverage of contraceptives, college financial aid for high school grads who are good citizens and public financing for Supreme Court campaigns. […]Walker’s budget plan also would ax a Democratic initiative approved under Doyle that grants in-state college tuition rates to children of illegal immigrants, so long as the students have graduated from a Wisconsin high school and lived in the state for at least three years.” [Associated Press, 3/8/11]

The Final Budget Approved By The Legislature Included Walker’s Cut. According to the Associated Press, “Prospective politicians, college students, business owners, state workers and commuters all will face a new world when the new state budget takes effect Friday. […]If you’re a child of an illegal immigrant, going to college in Wisconsin is about to get much more expensive. The budget ends in-state tuition rates for children of illegal immigrants and forces them to pay out-of-state rates. Those changes will apply to anyone who enrolls for classes after Friday.” [Associated Press, 6/30/11]

Students In The Program Had To Graduate From A Wisconsin High School And Sign An Affidavit Promising To Seek Permanent Residency. According to the Wisconsin State Journal, “As of May, Wisconsin was one of 12 states that allowed illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition, according to the National Immigration Law Center. To qualify for the program, a student had to prove he or she graduated from a Wisconsin high school and had lived here for three years, as well as sign an affidavit that he or she will seek permanent residency as soon as possible.” [Wisconsin State Journal, 6/21/11]

About 100 Undocumented Immigrants Took Advantage Of The Program Before Walker Cut It From The Budget.According to the Wisconsin State Journal, “About 100 illegal immigrants took advantage of a law allowing them to pay in-state tuition at University of Wisconsin System schools in the 2010-11 academic year under a short-lived program that will likely expire July 1, according to a State Journal analysis. Republican Gov. Scott Walker is expected to sign a two-year budget that will ban offering resident tuition for illegal immigrants, ending a program that former Gov. Jim Doyle, a Democrat, signed into law two years ago.” [Wisconsin State Journal, 6/21/11]

October 12, 2013: Christie Told The Latino Leadership Alliance, “You Should Make Your Decisions Based Upon What They Promise You They Will Do And Then Hold Them To It. Too Many Promises To This Community Have Been Broken.” In a speech to the Latino Leadership Alliance on October 12, 2013, Christie said, “This is the moment you’re most powerful. This is the time you should be grabbing each and every one of these folks aside and asking them where they stand on the issues that matter the most to you. And then, everybody, regardless of how you voted in the past, whichever party, you should make your decisions based upon what they promise you they will do and then hold them to it. Too many promises to this community have been broken over time.” [LLANJ 2013 Gala Keynote Speaker Honorable Chris Christie, Uploaded 10/14/13]

Christie: “24 Days Before An Election, I’m Willing To Bet That Everybody Wants To Be Your Friend. Everybody Wants To Be Your Friend.” In a speech to the Latino Leadership Alliance on October 12, 2013, Christie said, “In the same way we have to remember who are friends are, we have to remember who are friends are not. That’s just as important. ‘Cause especially this time of year, 24 days before an election, I’m willing to bet that everybody wants to be your friend. Everybody wants to be your friend.” [LLANJ 2013 Gala Keynote Speaker Honorable Chris Christie, Uploaded 10/14/13]

October 15, 2013: Christie Said It Was “Time Now” For The State To “Responsibly Fund” Tuition Equality. In a gubernatorial debate on October 15, 2013, Christie said, “What I said on Saturday night was it’s time now, given that economic times are getting better, and the state budget revenues are now going up, that this is now something we need to sit down with the legislature, and I suggested in that speech in the lame duck session, to sit down and talk about how we would responsibly fund tuition equality.” [Gov. Christie Supports NJ DREAM ACT in Debate, Uploaded 10/16/13]

November 25, 2013: Christie Said He Would Not Sign Dream Act Bill In NJ Senate. According to “Ask the Governor” on New Jersey 101.5, SCOTT: “The Senate and Assembly versions don’t match up-” CHRISTIE: “Correct. There’s a number of problems with the Senate bill that I’ve made very clear to the Senate President, and that my staff has made very clear to Senator Ruiz. They decided to pass it in the form, in the form it’s in now, in the Senate form, I would not sign it.” [New Jersey 101.5, “Ask the Governor,” 11/25/13]

Newark Star-Ledger Editorial HEADLINE: “Christie’s Flip-Flop On Immigration: Editorial.” [Editorial – Newark Star-Ledger, 12/1/13]

Newark Star-Ledger Editorial: “Christie Has His Eyes On The Presidency. And If He Has To Roll Over Latinos To Get There, He’ll Do It.” According to a Newark Star-Ledger editorial, “The real reason for his flip-flop? Christie has his eyes on the presidency. And if he has to roll over Latinos to get there, he’ll do it.” [Editorial – Newark Star-Ledger, 12/1/13]

Newark Star-Ledger Editorial: Christie Opposed A Provision Of The Bill That Ensures The It Does Not Violate Federal Law. According to a Newark Star-Ledger editorial, “His other excuse was that out-of-state residents would be eligible for in-state tuition if they went to a private high school in New Jersey. Think about this: He’s saying we should scrap this bill because someone might come to our pricey boarding schools from out of state, then decide to go to a public college and get in-state tuition. How many students could this possibly apply to? Christie says he won’t sign on until legislators fix this, but the bill was purposely written that way, so it does not violate a federal law that bans offering immigrants without legal status anything that is not offered to citizens.” [Editorial – Newark Star-Ledger, 12/1/13]

"They have to relocate the rats. And, not only that, that’s actually not the worst part, they cannot break up the families of the rats... it is worse than our immigration policy. You can’t break up rat families. Or raccoons, and all the rest, and you can’t even kill ‘em. Its unbelievable."
]]>
Cuccinelli Compared Immigration Policy To Pest Control And Rat Extermination, Declared That Washington D.C.’s Pest Control Policy Was “Worse Than Our Immigration Policy” Because “You Can’t Break Up Rat Families.” According to the Huffington Post, “Cuccinelli made his strange remark during a radio interview in 2012. Speaking on the conservative radio show ‘The Morning Majority,’ the attorney general launched into a critique of Washington, D.C.’s pest control policies, which he claimed protected rats from being killed. ‘They have to relocate the rats. And, not only that, that’s actually not the worst part, they cannot break up the families of the rats!’ Cuccinelli said, incorrectly suggesting that the District’s 2010 Wildlife Protection Act forced pest control specialists to dump them across the river in Virginia. Cuccinelli then made his comparison. ‘So, anyway, it is worse than our immigration policy,’ he said. ‘You can’t break up rat families. Or raccoons, and all the rest, and you can’t even kill ‘em. Its unbelievable.’“ [Huffington Post, 7/26/13]

Gary Miller (R-CA) http://allstevekingsmen.com/gary-miller-r-ca/ http://allstevekingsmen.com/gary-miller-r-ca/#comments Sun, 28 Jul 2013 21:38:08 +0000 http://allstevekingsmen.com/?p=180 On Mandatory DNA Collection from Undocumented Workers:
"This absolutely has to be part of the equation."
]]>
Miller Supported Proposal From San Bernardino County District Attorney To Require All Undocumented Workers Submit DNA Samples In Order To Stay In America On Pathway To Citizenship. According to the Daily News of Los Angeles, “One of Southern California’s top prosecutors is urging Congress to require immigrants to submit DNA samples as a condition of staying in the United States. San Bernardino County District Attorney Michael A. Ramos sent a hand-delivered letter to House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., asking that pending immigration legislation include provisions allowing immigrants’ DNA samples to be cross-checked against the FBI’s database to prevent criminals from obtaining U.S. citizenship. ‘If they want to really be here on some form of work visa, or whatever Congress decides on a path to citizenship, I want to make sure they’re law-abiding,’ Ramos said. Ramos said he believes the vast majority of undocumented immigrants are otherwise law-abiding people who have entered the United States in search of work, and he anticipates only a very small percentage of immigrants will be blocked from citizenship by a DNA test linking them to criminal activity… Ramos also sent his letter to both of California’s senators – Democrats Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer – and House members representing San Bernardino County. Among them, Republicans Paul Cook and Gary Miller signaled some support for the district attorney’s idea… Miller, R-Rancho Cucamonga, was more explicit in his support. Miller, who has supported tight immigration laws throughout his career, said he can find no fault in the DNA sampling proposal. ‘This absolutely has to be part of the equation,’ Miller said.” [Daily News of Los Angeles, 1/31/13]

  • Miller Praised Mandatory DNA Sampling For Undocumented Workers, Said “This Absolutely Has To Be Part Of The Equation.” According to the Daily News of Los Angeles, “Ramos also sent his letter to both of California’s senators – Democrats Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer – and House members representing San Bernardino County.

Miller Condemned “Birth Tourism” As An Escalating Problem For The United States. According to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, “Rep. Gary Miller, R-Brea, says birth tourism is a growing overseas industry in countries such as China, South Korea and Saudi Arabia where companies facilitate mothers’ trips to the United States exploit American immigration law. ‘It’s a loophole and it’s a problem,’ Miller said.” [San Gabriel Valley Tribune, 12/10/12]

Gary Miller Boasted About Being “The First Sponsor Of House Legislation Which Would Deny Citizenship To Anchor Babies.” According to a press release from Rep. Gary Miller’s (R-CA) office, “The author of the Arizona immigration law, State Senator Russell Pearce, will soon introduce legislation in the Arizona State Senate to deny citizenship to anchor babies.  Birthright citizenship is yet another loophole in our laws that encourages and facilitates illegal immigration.   In fact, approximately 200,000 to 300,000 babies are born to illegal immigrants each year.  By granting children of illegal immigrants citizenship, the child can eventually anchor an entire family in the United States, even though they gained access to our nation illegally.  In addition, the child – and potentially their family – will have access to a wide array of taxpayer-funded benefits, including access to a U.S. education and recently enacted government-run health care.  It is unfair to grant birthright citizenship to children of illegal immigrants because it undermines the intention of the 14th Amendment and rewards those that have recklessly broken our nation’s immigration laws.  Congressman Miller is the first sponsor of House legislation which would deny citizenship to anchor babies and spoke to Senator Pearce this week about efforts to end this practice. Congressman Miller commends Senator Pearce for his efforts to close this loophole at the state level and looks forward to working with him on this issue.” [GaryMiller.House.gov, 6/18/10]

Jan Brewer said Friday that most illegal immigrants entering Arizona are being used to transport drugs across the border, an assertion that critics slammed as exaggerated and racist. Brewer said the motivation of ‘a lot’ of the illegal immigrants is to enter the United States to look for work, but that drug rings press them into duty as drug ‘mules.’ ‘I believe today, under the circumstances that we’re facing, that the majority of the illegal trespassers that are coming into the state of Arizona are under the direction and control of organized drug cartels and they are bringing drugs in,’ Brewer said. ‘There’s strong information to us that they come as illegal people wanting to come to work. Then they are accosted and they become subjects of the drug cartel,’ she said. Brewer’s office later issued a statement in response to media reports of her comments. It said most human smuggling into Arizona is under the direction of drug cartels, which ‘are by definition smuggling drugs.’” [Huffington Post, 6/25/10]

We know people are being trained to come in and act like Hispanic when they’re radical Islamists. We know these things are happening. It’s just insane not to protect ourselves."]]> Louie Gohmert Argued That Immigrant Children Could Be Used As An Elaborate Plot By Terrorists To Weaken The American Economy. According to a floor speech by Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), “We owe it to Arizona and the people of the United States to enforce the borders. There are people coming into the country who want to destroy our way of life. I talked to a retired FBI agent who said that one of the things they were looking at were terrorist cells overseas who had figured out how to game our system. And it appeared they would have young women, who became pregnant, would get them into the United States to have a baby. They wouldn’t even have to pay anything for the baby. And then they would turn back where they could be raised and coddled as future terrorists.  And then one day, twenty…thirty years down the road, they can be sent in to help destroy our way of life. Because they figured out how stupid we are being in this country to allow our enemies to game our system, hurt our economy, get setup in a position to destroy our way of life, and we won’t do anything about it – we’ll even sue a state that tries to do anything about it.” [Gohmert Floor Speech, 6/24/10]

Rep. Gohmert Claimed Al Qaeda Is Training Terrorists To “Act Like Hispanic.” According to Politico, “Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert alleged Wednesday that Al Qaeda operatives were being taught to “act like Hispanic” and cross the border illegally into the United States. ‘We know Al Qaeda has camps over with the drug cartels on the other side of the Mexican border,’ Gohmert said on C-SPAN. ‘We know people are being trained to come in and act like Hispanic when they’re radical Islamists. We know these things are happening. It’s just insane not to protect ourselves.’ A Gohmert spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to a request for evidence supporting Gohmert’s claims.” [Politico, 4/17/13]
