    Immigration activists confronted Rep. Steve King in a delightfully uncomfortable exchange that the Iowa politician completely botched. At a fundraiser in Okobiji, Iowa, Dream Act Coalition members Erika Andiola and Cesar Vargas addressed King on his anti-immigration policies. Andiola called King out on some of his more inflammatory remarks, including his allegation that some undocumented illegal children smuggle drugs that are hidden in their “calves the size of cantaloupes.” In response, King said to her “You're very good at English. You know what I'm saying." King added "I’m really sorry that you come from a lawless country. I hope that you can have a happy life. But please, do not erode the rule of law in America.” Ever loyal and gallant, Rand Paul, who was campaigning with King, bolted with an aide as soon as the two activists appeared.
