Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart confronts Rep. Steve King, then speaks about incident

Congressman Steve King of Iowa has been facing criticism over comments he made about the children of undocumented workers, telling a conservative website, “For everyone who’s a valedictorian, there’s another 100 out there that weigh 130 pounds and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert.”  Legislators on both sides of the aisle, including Republican leaders, have condemned the comments.  In the meantime, King is doubling down on what he said.  Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart met up with the Congressman and asked him to explain his remarks. Chris Hayes reports on the latest in the Steve King saga, and talks with Diaz-Balart.
