Iowa conservative firebrand Rep. Steve King said much of President Donald Trump’s base is getting “uneasy” about his inaction on immigration.
Speaking on Radio Iowa, King criticized Trump for picking “pro-immigration” economist Gary Cohn as an adviser.
“People are policy,” King said, “so whenever I see those kind of appointments come in place, I do get concerned about it.”
While King, a hardliner on immigration, said he was a fan of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, he wants Trump to take action on former President Barack Obama’s deferred action policies for undocumented immigrants and parents of American citizens.
“And I’ve told the president this: ‘Every day you don’t address this, it gets harder and harder to do,’” he said.
