Congressman Steve King doesn’t like that a girl who came to America before she was one-year-old and now, at age 20, was attending the State of the Union address, is in America.


“#Obama perverts ‘prosecutorial discretion’ by inviting a deportable to sit in place of honor at #SOTU w/1st Lady,” King wrote. “I should sit with Alito.”

King’s Tweet likely refers to Ana Zamora, a 20-year-old student from Dallas who was invited to sit with Michelle Obama during the speech. President Obama’s 2012 executive action granted Zamora and thousands of other so-called “dreamers” legal status, including the possibility of obtaining work permits and drivers’ licenses.

The president’s November 2014 executive action further granted legal status to Zamora’s undocumented parents — a construction worker and a small business owner. In response, Zamora wrote a thank you letter to the White House that led to her being selected for the coveted seat beside the first lady.[su_csky_ad]

    “Deportable?” And Mr. King is deplorable!

    The Congressman also told the Politico, “We have to fight. We have to fight now or we’re going to have to fight later.” I suppose we can take that as just more mindless goper rhetoric. Or is it code? A call to action, perhaps even violent action, against people like Ana Zamora or her parents? Reckless, to say the least. Deliberate? But, defiantly deplorable!

    Wouldn’t it make more sense to deport foreign nationals who have actually done damage to the nation?

      another flip flopper trying to imitate Romney.

    Not even an adjective “deportable”. He used the word as a noun.

    Rep. King and facts are rarely, if ever, in the same room. What an embarrassment to the human race!

      Yeah, he made it to fourth place in the RIGHT WING DUNCE CONTEST when he said he didn’t think women could get pregnant from rape.

      He was also pro-dog fighting.

    WTF! these folks are right next door to US.

    Hell, Sara’s gotta come all the way across Canada to get here all squishied up in a wide body Cessna.

    Iowa is on a roll….this idiot and the pignutter Ernst. Texas watch out…you may lose your place as the rightwing looney bin of the nation

    King is obviously running for president. He’s currently stuck in fourth place in the RIGHT WING DUNCE CONTEST and this bit of styupidity is not enough to unseat Nyewt Gingrich from third place.
    You’re gonna have to work harder, Mr. King, to get that nomination!

    How ironic. Steve King accusing somebody else of being deplorable. I’d accuse him of hypocrisy, but, like most republicans, I don’t think he knows the meaning of the word.

    a “deportable”? whats that? sounds like an “empty chair that remains nameless”

  10. No way out January 21st, 2015 at 6:22 pm

    My word for this stooge? Deplorable.

  11. uzza January 21st, 2015 at 10:19 pm

    She’s not a “deportable”, asshole, she’s a woman.
