We'll definitely be tuning into this. We hope Jorge Ramos holds Rep. King's feet to the fire. Any thoughts? Comment below!

WASHINGTON -- When Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) appears Sunday on Univision's "Al Punto con Jorge Ramos," he'll be doing something most anti-immigration reform Republicans haven't: entering a Spanish-language forum where neither the host nor most of the audience agree with his views.

He's not the typical Republican guest on Spanish-language news. King is a vocal opponent of amnesty and leads a group focused on blocking comprehensive immigration reform. Last month, he successfully pushed an amendment to end an Obama administration policy to stop deporting some Dreamers, or undocumented young people. He already announced opposition to a yet-to-be-released bill from two other Republicans that would legalize Dreamers and allow them to stay in the United States.

Although Republicans often appear on the two biggest Spanish-language public affairs programs, "Al Punto" and Telemundo's "Enfoque con José Díaz-Balart," they're almost always pro-immigration reform. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who helped draft the "gang of eight" immigration bill, has appeared on "Al Punto" twice so far this year and Enfoque" four times. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) went on "Al Punto" three times and "Enfoque" once, while Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) had two "Al Punto" interviews and two on "Enfoque."

    I would really like to know his reasons behind this….is his focus only on Latinos? Does he feel the same about other undocumented immigrants of European decent? Why not allow the younger generation to stay? What threat do they pose to this country? What are his real concerns that he can actually present with facts to be true. Sometimes they say that undocumented workers “steal jobs” and “feed off the system.” Does he have proof?
