Late last week, as certain Republican presidential hopefuls were arriving in Iowa for this weekend’s Freedom Summit; illegal immigrants in Iowa, together with their supporters were issuing threats and warnings for such candidates: “Stay away from a major driving force behind the event you'll be attending – Rep. Steve King – if you want to have any chance of winning Hispanic votes ( See “Amnesty Supporters to GOP: Stay Away From Rep.

ILLEGALS AND THEIR SUPPORTERS TELL GOP’S 2016 CANDIDATES TO SHUN GOP CONGRESSMAN STEVE KINGThe Washington Times reports that one of the so-called “Dreamers” who is in the United States as a result of President Barack Obama's 2012 amnesty for “Illegals” brought here by their parents said this: "If the GOP wants to win [in] 2016, then they are going to have to make sure that they stay as much as possible away from Steve King as they can...."

Also according to the Times report by Seth McLaughlin, Monica Reyes, co-founder of DREAM Iowa, a pro-amnesty group, also warned Republicans to shun King, now in his seventh term in the House. "We will stand up for our communities, and we will try to protect what we earned and what we worked hard to get," Reyes said.

We have a vitality that’s unequaled on the planet.

On a similar topic, Politico noted that “On Tuesday, King criticized a DREAMer invited to sit in the first lady’s box at the State of the Union address as “a deportable,” a remark that he defended after facing criticism. The congressman, who has been confronted several times on camera by immigration advocates, has previously said most undocumented immigrations have ‘calves the size of cantaloupes’ from smuggling drugs and compared them to dogs.”
