Rep. Steve King (R-IA) during a radio interview Thursday on “The John Fredericks Show” accused President Obama of importing “undocumented Democrats” and essentially buying votes.

“To put it simply, the President is importing millions of illegal aliens, who, when they arrive here, he thinks, and he’s right, they are undocumented Democrats,” King said. “The next phase of this is to document these Democrats so they can vote. This is a raw political power move.”

King criticized Obama’s “lawlessness,” saying he was bringing in people who would “erode the politics of this country” and who don’t have “respect for the rule of law.”

“They don’t understand the law,” King said. “They come from lawless countries so they’re not at all likely to defend our constitution or the rule of law.”

King also compared the loyalty these illegal aliens would have for Obama and the Democratic Party to the loyalty African Americans had for Democrats after President Lyndon B. Johnson passed the Civil Rights Act.
