Washington Post fact checkers say King’s comment is baseless

U.S. Rep. Steve King’s claim that drug-running undocumented immigrants with bulging muscles and massive sacks of marijuana outnumber high-achieving “Dreamers” has earned four Pinocchios from Washington Post fact checkers — the most grievous distinction available.

King, who represents Iowa’s 4th Congressional District, kicked up a firestorm last week when he asserted in an interview that “For every one who’s a valedictorian, there’s another hundred out there who weigh 130 pounds, and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling seventy-five pounds of marijuana across the desert. Those people would be legalized with the same act.”
