Rep. Steve King has a well-deserved reputation for being one of the loopiest members of Congress, ranking up there — err, down there — with Bachmann and Gohmert. And now he says that if we don’t send in the national guard to secure the Mexican border, we’ll have billions of immigrants coming here. And he didn’t misspeak — he meant to say that.
Saying that since Obama has the resources necessary to close the border but is refusing to do so, King therefore urged border governors to call up their National Guard units and do it themselves because soon “it won’t be any longer a question of whether we can deport eleven million people; it will be tens of millions more and the question will be how many billion people can we let into the United States?”
“And I say that term ‘billion,’ I didn’t just pull it out of the air,” King made clear, “there’s seven billion people on the planet and over half of them would like to be in America.”
