Representatives Steve King (R-IA) and Brian Bilbray (R-CA) have staked out roles as two of the most vehement and controversial anti-immigrant mouthpieces in Congress. Recently, they have offered their collective expertise to Arizona law enforcement, who have spoken out strongly against the state’s new profiling law, SB 1070, because of the way that it inhibits community policing and fighting real crime.

The Representatives' advice to worried police has been simple: “just check their shoes!”

Shoe fetish aside, Rep. King also made the absurd statement Monday that law enforcement could spot those here illegally by either noting indicators such as, “What kind of clothes people wear…what kind of shoes people wear, what kind of accent they have, the type of grooming that they might have…” or:

“…just a sixth sense...”  

America's Voice decided to have some fun envisioning King’s worldview as a horror flick.

Watch it:

If you find this as ridiculous as I do, please sign the petition to Obama to stop Arizona-style profiling and help spread the word!
