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.

  1. If I spoke like this moron does about a co-worker, I’d be fired. Why do we allow our politicians to behave in such a depraved and ugly manner? I say fire all these irresponsible, ranting, rude, lying louts. Now.

    Oh, and by the way Representative King? The President isn’t running for reelection. Dumbass.

  2. Are these the same “Undocumented Democrats” that Hilary Clinton supposedly imported in 2000?

  3. on the outside chance that this would actually be true would it be possible to request that they get placed in this xenophobic dumbass’s district so we might be rid of him?

  4. Hillary is not my ideal candidate, and I am regularly disgusted by the conservadems in congress, but compared to the Republican candidates and the Republican members of Congress, Hillary is Hypatia, Madame Curie and Lise Meitner rolled into in one and congressional democrats are the Vulcan High Council, respectively.

  5. Solution is simple. Send the INS to IOWA. Visit every single farm, food processing plant, hotel and restaurant. Let La Migra check for everyone’s papers. Send the illegal immigrants back to their home countries and let the legal Republicans fill all those job openings.
