Good for Steven King! ...Rep. Steve King: 'I Have No Moral Obligation' To Help Illegal Aliens Stay In USA

Rep. Steve King: 'I Have No Moral Obligation' To Help Illegal Aliens Stay In USA

In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, straight talking Rep. Steve King (R-IA) makes a seldom heard argument that cuts to the heart of the immigration problem. Congressman King said:

I was talking to someone about immigration reform and I told him what I thought was wrong with the approach on the bill.

He looks at me and he says "What are you going to do? How are you going to solve this problem of eleven million illegal immigrants?"

So, I gave my answer which is not a new idea; seal the border. But as I drove home that night I realized I didn't give the correct answer.

My real answer is, "Why do I have to do anything to solve a problem that people created willingly for themselves?"

They choose to come here illegally and live in the shadows. They are happy enough to take the risk of sneaking into the United States or overstaying their visa, sneaking around and using fraudulent documents to get a job or tapping into welfare and living here in the shadows for the balance of their lives. That was their best option; the worst would be prison or deportation.

The answer to that question is: I don't have to do anything to fix that problem.

I have no moral obligation to make it easier for people to stay here if they are people who broke the law to get here. That moral question isn't answered by anyone; I don't have to fix that problem. The more uncomfortable it gets for them to stay, the less problems we have. The less uncomfortable it gets, the more problems.

Wild Thing's comment..................

King is absolutely right, we did nothing to cause this and the illegals did. It should not be up to our government to give this amnesty to illegals and IMO especially when they are those doing it legally.

They're living a criminal life and they get rewarded. What is this country degenerating to when we reward criminal activity?

One of the main problems with the illegal alien problem is the large number of Americans supporting illegals whether it is employers, civil rights/Latino organizations or politicians looking for voters. I've always thought that if a fine, say $5000 per illegal employee was levied on employers, the problem would dissolve.
