Rep Steve King (R-IA) addresses the gathering at the launching of a group known as AVIAC, Advocates for Victims of Illegal Alien Crime. It’s a 501(c) (3) founded by victims of illegal alien crime who have lost loved ones to illegal aliens inside the United States, whose children would still be alive today had the illegal been removed or prevented from entering. Their government failed them in the most horrific way, with the loss of their family member, putting the interests of foreign squatters above those of the American citizens.
Rep King recognizes and has been fighting against that failure since coming to Congress in 2002. He talks of kicking a dent in his filing cabinet in 1986 when Reagan signed that Amnesty, knowing how long it would likely take and the deviation en route to restoring the rule of law. “Now we’re on the cusp of restoring the rule of law and respect for the rule of law.”
King talks of the parents who have suffered the loss of their child, saying, “Every one of those lives that have been snuffed out by someone who is unlawfully in America, illegal aliens, is a preventable death. That’s what these families here know, they know that the deaths that they’ve suffered in their family are preventable.”
King notes that Eisenhower enforced immigration law well but that each succeeding administration enforced it less and less until you got to the outlaw Obama who said, “I have prosecutorial discretion. I’m going to decide not to enforce whole vast areas of the law and I’m going to reward lawbreakers because what, it helps him politically? That seems to have been the equation.”
He says that when we encounter the illegals in the streets demanding that they be made Americans, “we need to apply the law, in fact, the law requires that they be placed in removal proceedings.
He talks of his frustration since coming to Congress which led to him commissioning two studies, one in 2005 and another in 2011, which showed that 28% of those who are incarcerated in our federal penitentiaries are criminal aliens.” He notes that most of those are not in prison for immigration law violations, that their rate of incarceration is much higher than that of Americans, but even if it weren’t so, there’s no excuse for any percentage, any preventable illegal alien crime against Americans.
King notes that the families on stage with him who have lost loved ones are the equivalent of Gold Star families. He describes the legislative efforts underway and planned for immigration enforcement, including the construction of the border wall, and the hiring of 10,000 additional ICE agents, tripling the staff.
King urges support for the organization, “So that America understands the price that Americans have paid for the failure to enforce immigration law.”
