BROOKLYN - Rep. Steve King (R-IA) is coming under fire for controversial comments he made regarding the Senate's immigration bill last week.

King said that "for every young undocumented immigrant who is a school valedictorian, 100 others are bringing drugs across the U.S.-Mexico border."

King is sticking by his statement, despite the backlash.

"It's utterly true," he says.
