No, "unfortunate" is when something bad happens to you by accident. This was more like "stupid and bigoted." About what you'd expect from King.

Oh, and guess what, Steve? Mexico only HAS drug problems because America can't get enough drugs and yet fights a foolish war on them every single year! Think about that for awhile and meditate on why your comments are "stupid and bigoted."

King just isn't sick and twisted enough to buy into the Left's narrative that Ignoring America's Immigration Laws is a Good Thing. King is just too honest to appeal to those see nothing of value in American citizenship. Those who see no value in America are on Team Obama.

Boehner (R-Ohio) said in a statement late Tuesday afternoon that the comments from King were “hateful.”

According to a recent Latino Decisions poll, 66 percent of Latino voters said anti-immigrant quotes represent “many Republicans in Congress” compared to just 27 percent who said they represent only a few isolated individuals.

While King is lacking in couth here, the BOTTOM LINE is that Racist Mexico OWES the US TRILLIONS.

Now, it is NOT just Obama who has failed soooo miserably to protect our borders---but the BUSHES and the CLINTONS and the Main-Stream Media also.

The United States is the laughing stock of the entire world.

We have the greatest military in the world and we are NOT ALLOWED(by the BANKSTERS) to even protect our own borders.

But, if the International Banksters want the Turkey/Syrian border protected, then no problem.

If the government actually took action to ENFORCE the immigration laws and allow ONLY LEGAL immigrants to remain within our borders, no one would have a clue about what an 'illegal' looks like or what an 'illegal' does.

The fact that this guy has 'unfortunate' ideas about illegals, means that the government is NOT DOING ITS JOB!!!

No one could have 'unfortunate' illegal immigrant comments because there would be few, if any illegals to talk about !!

If someone is not a citizen, and they're involved in some illegal activity, then they should be deported.

100 years ago, immigrants came to America carrying shovels or advanced university degrees. That's the kind of immigration we need and should support.

Despite waht the modern day adage says, we actually don't have to take the bad with the good. There is nothing wrong with sniffing a fish or fruit before putting it in your shopping cart. We do it all the time.

We still have hope that after Obama we can regain some of our National dignity and honor. The long nightmare will end.

The national nightmare will end when people with your views lose any power to influence what happens here.

Steve King is illustrative of the extreme right loons who have infested the political scene, and have crawled into our lives. If fruitcakes like him can be found anywhere in America's history, those must have been dark times indeed.

Influence of the conservatives is gaining strength as we see the massive failure of the left year after year.

Recession, fannie/freddie, stimulus, shovel ready, cash for clunkers, green energy joke fiasco's...foreign policy in shambles, military and defense getting gutted..........obamacaretax getting worse...

You killing yourselves, we don't have to do a thing.
