Rep. Steve King doesn’t understand the fuss over immigrant children being placed in detention centers — after separation from their parents — because he says they’re getting great care and having more fun than most American kids.
The Iowa Congressman was in D.C. Friday when he addressed the outcry … telling us he’s visited one of the centers, and found it totally hospitable. He raved about the kids getting exercise, meals, and a warm place to sleep — not to mention medical treatment that surpasses what they get in their native countries.
Of course, what they they don’t have are their parents.
King, a Republican, insinuates the Democrats are spinning this into a controversy, and adds … the centers were open during Obama‘s administration and no one complained then.
One side note, relevant to the immigration issue … King came under fire this week for retweeting British Neo-Nazi Mark Collett‘s take on immigration. He has not deleted it.
