Arizona DREAMer Andiola Gets in King's Face

Posted By on Thu, Aug 7, 2014 at 8:45 AM

The video of Arizona DREAMer Erika Andiola with Cesar Vargas confronting Iowa Rep. Steve King—with Sen. Rand Paul running away is having a great run on the internets. And of course, making those in Arizona familiar with Andiola's work on behalf of immigration reform particularly proud.

When King asked Andiola is she understands the English language after she asks the congressman if he wanted to rip apart her DACA card is priceless, but especially when she explains she's a collage graduate. Paul is being labeled a coward for walking away, but perhaps when he saw DREAMer Andiola he realized he'd look worse than usual—like his friend King.

Viva Andiola!
