Republican leaders have announced their disapproval of Rep. Steve King's (R-Iowa) criticism of young, undocumented immigrants, also known as Dreamers. In a recent interview, Steve King claimed that the majority of Dreamers are engaged in drug trafficking. "For everyone who's a valedictorian," King said, "There's another 100 out there that weigh 130 pounds and they?ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they're hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert. Those people would be legalized with the same act."
