There are a lot of people, mostly pompous asses, who owe Congressman Steve King an apology.
And the scientific community is united in that fact
King took heat for statements about drug cartels utilizing young drug mules to get their product into this country.
In July (Mule Train) we noted news stories, about the the practice, dating back to 2001.
Earlier this month, The U.S. Border Patrol earlier this month arrested a 12-year-old illegal immigrant smuggling 80 pounds of marijuana from Mexico into Texas.
In total agents arrested six Mexicans — two adults, two 17-year-olds, a 16-year-old and the 12-year-old — smuggling more than 300 pounds of marijuana.
When you add in the number of children caught crossing the U.S. border has surged over the last two yearsand take into account that a federal judge in Texas accused the government of effectively aiding the drug cartel, which the ICE director defends, the attacks on King go up in smoke.
