Steve King compares legal immigrants to “pick of the litter” dogs

Steve King makes a campaign speech in Mason City in 2012.

Steve King is at it again, this time releasing a video where he compares legal immigrants to bird dogs, saying that America gets the “pick of the litter” when choosing who to allow into the country.

King sent an email Thursday calling attacks on him “baseless” after he recently said that illegal aliens have “hands the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert” while they weigh just 130 pounds.

In Thursday’s email, King asks for money and donations while saying that he has positive things to say about legal immigrants.

“In this video it is clear I complimented legal immigrants,” King stated Thursday in an email. “In fact, I’ve even received dozens of messages from Hispanics who have watched the video letting me know it was complimentary and many of them declared their disgust for the way the left has tried to twist my words! If you also agree, I hope you’ll make a generous donation to my campaign. Every single dollar you’re able to give will help me fight back against these baseless attacks.”

    Taking out of context quotes to make news is so small of you all. Listen to the whole segment. Mr. King tells it like it is.

      No, he tells it like your racist mind likes to hear it.

        love funnel – you must be clairvoyant to know how someone’s mind likes to hear things or you are simply using the typical liberal name calling tactic. Which is it?
        The comments were not racist. Since you like to throw the term around just which race are you referring to?

      Speaking truthfully is not rope.

        @4ever49-this time I think Kings let his mouth outrun his common sense. We really expect our congressmen to be smart enough not to let their mouths get them in a bind like this. Everyone seems to be distancing themselves from him over this.

    Oh yea…Who would’ve picked Elvis’s parents?

    I don’t like the idea of King and his ilk choosing who gets picked.

      I’m just wondering about your post, what Elvis are you talking about…

      So “King and his ilk” should not be choosing? Just who do you think would do a better job – you & your ilk? There is not one thing wrong with us being able to control who enters the country.
      It is very obvious that MSM has set out to use emotion rather than logic and facts to frame this issue and slam King and you’ve taken the bait.
