GOP Lawmaker Threatens Government Shutdown

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) said "the threat of another government shutdown could be Republicans' leverage to pass border security and immigration legislation this fall," the Des Moines Register reports.

Said King: "If the president wields his pen and commits that unconstitutional act to legalize millions, I think that becomes something that is nearly political nuclear... I think the public would be mobilized and galvanized and that changes the dynamic of any continuing resolution and how we might deal with that."
