"Steve King is much like the Wizard of Oz when it comes to immigration," Schumer said during a 10-minute floor speech. "He is pulling the levers behind the screen to make it seem he has the power. [The] Republican party will learn sooner or later, like Dorothy did in the 'Wizard of Oz,' that actually King works by fear and he doesn't have the power, that the Wizard's power is overstated he can't really do very much. And the only way to get back home and do something real is in ourselves."

Schumer Compares Steve King to 'Wizard of Oz' on Immigration

Nearly two weeks after Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, challenged Sen. Charles E. Schumer and other Senate Democrats to a "duel," the New York Democrat returned the favor on the Senate floor Wednesday, calling King the "Wizard of Oz" on immigration.

"Steve King is much like the Wizard of Oz when it comes to immigration," Schumer said during a 10-minute floor speech. "He is pulling the levers behind the screen to make it seem he has the power. [The] Republican party will learn sooner or later, like Dorothy did in the 'Wizard of Oz,' that actually King works by fear and he doesn't have the power, that the Wizard's power is overstated he can't really do very much. And the only way to get back home and do something real is in ourselves."
