King Says No To Immigration Bill

Iowa Congressman Steve King is leading opposition to the push to pass some sort of immigration reform through the U.S. House.

King and other Republicans in the U.S. House met privately to discuss the issue.

King suggests House Republican leaders structured the private meeting in such a way as to sway newer House members who may be undecided on the issue and King worries the ground may be shifting against him. Some Republicans argue the G-O-P will continue to lose ground with the growing ranks of Latino and other minority votes if Republicans in the House kill immigration reform.
