King Says GOP Under a 'Spell'

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) told CNN that Republicans are under a "spell" when it comes to immigration reform.

Said King: "Last year, almost everybody in my conference would've agreed with me on this immigration issue. And this year, it seems as though after the presidential election a spell's been cast over a good number of Republicans and they seem to think the presidential election was about immigration. I'd ask them, find me that debate between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama that addressed immigration. I don't remember it. I can't find it. The election was about jobs and the economy, not immigration. And yet some Republican strategists and leadership have decided let's just go ahead and debate immigration for twelve months and then we'll see if we can solve the problem."
