Rep. Steve King: Democrats Are Like Pontius Pilate

Date: August 4, 2010

Religious figures and groups — including the National Association of Evangelicals, Christians for Comprehensive Immigration Reform, and the United States Catholic Bishops Conference — are also uniting behind the push for comprehensive immigration reform. Just yesterday, Rev. Rich Nathan, of Columbus, Ohio’s Vineyard Church, stated in a press conference that immigration reform is “about the only public policy issue upon which there is great unanimity across the Christian spectrum. Abortion divides us, gay rights divide us, war and peace divides us — comprehensive immigration reform unites us.” Steve King wants to ensure, however, that comprehensive immigration is politically polarizing issue.
