Another House Republican Leader Condemns Steve King's Attack on Immigrants

Another House Republican Leader Condemns Steve King's Attack on Immigrants
by Roger Algase

In the wake of criticism by other influential House Republicans of Representative Steve King's (R-Iowa) latest racist anti-immigrant remark, in which he accused DREAMER's of being "drug mules" (see my July 25 post), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) has also weighed in against King.

POLITICO (July 25) reports that Goodlatte, in an interview with Telemundo, condemned King's comment as "inappropriate", "not helpful" and "not accurate". See: Bob Goodlatte on Steve King: 'Not helpful'

However, the same article also quotes Goodlatte as continuing to insists that "border security" and "interior enforcement" would have to come first before a pathway to citizenship for unauthorized immigrants could even be considered, and that he does not support a "special" pathway to citizenship in any event.

In other words, Goodlatte is still fixated on the same old "enforcement-first", or "enforcement-only", policy that Republicans have been pushing for during the last decade, if not the last two decades. This way, there will never be reform, because the Republicans will never agree that the enforcement measures are working, even if the US were to turn into another North Korea.

While ostensibly condemning Steve King's hate speech, House Republican leaders are still making every effort to accomplish King's goal of making sure that there will be no immigration reform. Whether House Republicans attack immigrants directly with racial slurs, as King is doing, or whether they go through an elaborate charade of pretending to support reform while insisting on impossible conditions and offering only poison pills, their purpose is the same. In the words of right wing pundits Bill Kristol and Rich Lowry, the House Republicans' only goal is to put a stake through the heart of immigration reform.
