Steve King Stokes Old Feud With Raul Labrador

Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-ID) has just announced his intention to run for House Majority Leader, but he already has made a few enemies in the house for his support for some kind of immigration reform.

Just hours before Labrador’s announcement, King took a shot on him on Twitter for supporting amnesty.

After Labrador announced, King posted another note on Twitter.

In early 2013, Labrador raised eyebrows among anti-amnesty Republicans after he made a series of immigration proposals.

But King has other reasons for opposing Labrador.

When the vocal anti-amnesty Iowan made his controversial comments about immigrants with “calves the size of cantaloupes” in July 2013, Labrador was quick to call the comment “reprehensible and irresponsible.”
