"We are here today to have what I think will be the longest press conference, maybe in the history of the United States Congress," said King. "The reason for this is because there's been an accelerated debate that has moved through to the United States Senate to move an immigration policy that I believe is at its heart and core, amnesty. I've always believed that was a mistake. In 1986 it was a mistake; it would be a mistake today. So we want to make sure that the American people understand the components of this debate -- the politics of it, and the policy of it -- and have an opportunity to weigh in to each one of us, to Members of the House and to the Members of the Senate."
