    Conservative Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) is headed to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s (R-Va.) hometown of Richmond for a special town-hall meeting on immigration reform.

    Last month King said that for every "valedictorian" who is in the United States illegally, there are another 100 with “calves the size of cantaloupes” hauling marijuana across the desert.

    The event was billed as a “Stop Amnesty” event — a response to the pro-reform rallies being held around the country. But instead of massive turnout by those who agree with King’s assessment that the bill “proposes to legalize a lot of people that will include the people who are drug smugglers,” a mere 50 to 60 people came to the event, by Politico reporter Seung Min Ki’s estimate. One person in attendance Tweeted that there were possibly 30 people there.
