WASHINGTON – Today, the Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), issued the following statement after Congressman Steve King (R-IA) was removed from his House Committee assignments:

“Thanks to pressure from the Congressional Black Caucus and others, Steve King is in a much weaker position to promote his racist agenda. Republicans must now take a hard look in the mirror and firmly decide that they will reject racism in all forms, including standing up to Donald Trump, who like Steve King, has made a career of racist and outlandish statements that divide our country. It’s up to the Republicans to save their party from the abyss and convince the American people that their values are firmly rooted in a future where everyone can succeed regardless of race.”

On Saturday, the Congressional Black Caucus Chair called on Republicans to remove King from his committee assignments. Read that statement here.
