  Rep. Steve King isn't backing down from his controversial comments on immigration and drugs.    The Iowa Republican has been taking a lot of heat for remarks he made while arguing against the Dream Act.   That's legislation that would create a pathway to citizenship for undocumented children who excel in school.   But King says high academic achievers aren't the only ones who would be given a path to citizenship.     "What I said is for every valedictorian there are a hundred per valedictorian that are smuggling drugs into the United States," King said. "I think the numbers support that so no I will not back off that statement.  I think it's important the people in Congress are able to objectively look at the data out there, the real facts and know 80 to 90% of the illegal drugs that come into America come from or through Mexico and the people that are carrying them are increasingly young people."   Several members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus took to the House floor Wednesday to slam King for his remarks.   Even House Republican leaders, including House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor, have condemned King's comments.
