CNN's Ruben Navarette: Keep the Dreamers; Discard Congressman Steve King

In an editorial column for CNN, Ruben Navarette makes a case for keeping the Dreamers (i.e. undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children) and sending away Iowa Republican Congressman Steven King.

Steve King, a rabid right-wing congressman from Iowa, recently claimed that Dreamers are much more likely to be drug smugglers than good students.

Navarette's column is linked below.

CNN's Ruben Navarette: Deport Congressman Steve King

"Now King has really outdone himself. With Republicans poised to introduce their own version of the DREAM Act, he recently suggested that -- contrary to the popular image of undocumented students brought here by their parents who become class valedictorian -- young illegal immigrants are just as likely to enter the country as drug mules."
