Faith Leaders, Community Organizations to Denounce Congressman King’s Divisive Immigration Views

Coalition to deliver more than 1,200 petition signatures to King’s office in Ames

Des Moines, IA – On Wednesday in Ames, a coalition of faith-based and community organizations will deliver more than 1,200 petition signatures to Congressman Steve King, calling on him to stop promoting a discredited report from the Heritage Foundation and to stop promoting hateful, divisive rhetoric about comprehensive immigration reform.

WHEN: Wednesday, June 12th, 1:30 PM

WHAT: Citizen petition delivery to Congressman Steve King

WHO: Connie Ryan Terrell, Executive Director, Interfaith Alliance of Iowa; Matt Sinovic, Executive Director, Progress Iowa

WHERE: Office of Congressman Steve King , 1421 S Bell Ave, Ste 102, Ames, IA, 50010

Recently, the Heritage Foundation released a controversial immigration report, widely discredited after it was discovered that one of its authors believes that “no one knows whether Hispanics will ever reach IQ parity with whites.”

King has embraced the controversial report, and used it as a reason to oppose common sense immigration reform. In a recent press conference, King cited the shoddy Heritage figures as fact, saying that “at no stage in their lives” do undocumented immigrants “make a net financial contribution to this country.”

Iowans are encouraged to sign a petition and speak out against King’s divisive rhetoric, and encourage him to follow the lead of Republicans who have already spoken out against the Heritage report, including Senator Marco Rubio and his colleague in the House, Congressman Paul Ryan.

    Hispanics being slandered are no doubt smarter than some of our Republican representatives.

    Why would anyone say that about Hispanics? It makes no sense.
