FOREST CITY | The issues of border control with Mexico, immigration, health care, agriculture and RIN waivers were just some of the topics discussed during a town hall meeting held this morning at Britt City Hall.
The town hall meeting was attended by U.S. Representative Steve King (R-Iowa).
King said he was pro-legal immigration and has spoken to Welcome New American Citizens at the naturalization ceremonies multiple times, including in Sioux City and Washington, D.C.
“We help people who are complying with our immigration laws,” he said. “I’m pro-rule of law. I am opposed to illegal immigration, and I’ve spent a lot of time on the border. I’ve traveled almost every mile of that border. I’ve stayed down there at night and in some of the most dangerous places ridden with the border patrol for as long as four days in a row.
"I mean, I do know what’s going on at the southern border.”
Approximately a dozen citizens participated in the event by asking King questions on several of these hot button topics.
