Conservatives: Obama’s State of the Union Immigration Reform Appeal Fell Flat


Conservatives in the House of Representatives feel like President Barack Obama’s brief call for immigration reform legislation during Tuesday evening’s State of the Union speech fell flat.

Rep. Steve King (R-IA), a hawk on immigration, told Breitbart News to look at how the vast majority of Republicans in the chamber—with the exceptions of House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), among few others—stayed seated in disapproval of Obama’s push for amnesty.

“It didn’t soar like some State of the Union addresses will,” King said.
