Steve King Denounces 'Creeping Effort'
to Push 'Irrational' Amnesty This Year
Rep. Steve King:"...we will not restore the rule of law within the lifetime of this republic." Breitbart -- May 31, 2014
On Saturday, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) denounced the "creeping effort" in Congress to pass what he said was an "illogical" and "irrational" "comprehensive amnesty" bill this year.
Appearing on Breitbart News Saturday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 with Breitbart News Executive Chairman and host Stephen K. Bannon, King said Republicans and Democrats are "looking for some kind of opening" to grant amnesty to "some sympathetic group," which would then allow them to keep broadening categories until all of the country's illegal immigrants are given amnesty.
King cited the ENLIST Act that would have given citizenship to illegal immigrant DREAMers who join the military as one such example. House Republicans ultimately decided not to include that amendment in a Defense Authorization bill after intense pressure from conservatives and veterans.
He told Bannon at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans that the White House is pushing for amnesty because it is an issue that divides Republicans and unites Democrats. [...]
If amnesty passes, King warned that "we will not restore the rule of law within the lifetime of this republic."
And if the republic cannot restore its rule of law, King said America's "destiny collapses" because "an exceptional pillar of American exceptionalism is the rule of law."....
