Immigration hardliner Steve King (R-Iowa) caused a stir Thursday when he put out a distressed tweet saying that his D.C. office had been "invaded" by "brazen, self-professed illegal immigrants."
20 brazen self professed illegal aliens have just invaded my DC office. Obama's lawless order gives them de facto immunity from U.S. law.

It was an interesting choice of words. After all, who's more brazen than Steve King?
Whether you agree or disagree with his politics, there's no question that King is a man who doesn't temper his opinions or hold his emotion back. He's compared immigrants to dogs, then defended the comparison. He led a vote in the House of Representatives aimed at deporting more DREAMers that he knew the Senate and president would reject, just to show he could. And he's not afraid to attack diversity and multiculturalism when pushing to make English the official language of the United States.
The DREAMers who showed up to his office look tame by comparison.
