Video: DREAMers Confront Rep. Steve King on Deferred Action


DREAMers Erika Andiola & Cesar Vargas confront Rep. Steve King.  Days ago, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) led Republicans to pass legislation than ends Deferred Action, Rep. Luis Gutierrez issues a warning.  The Illinois Congressman and House leader on immigration said there would be ramifications at the ballot box.  Given the numbers and the increasing grassroots activism, it’s a safe bet Gutierrez will turn out to be correct. 

House Republicans vote to deport over 500,000 people who have applied for Deferred Action is sure to have political ramifications.  It’s “like I ordered if off the menu,said Rep. Steve King (R-IA) on the anti-Dreamers bill he wrote. Well, two DREAMers served up a different menu in Iowa.   Is that Rand Paul running from the table?
