Here's the Congressional Black Caucus' Idea of Punishing Rep. Steve King

McCarthy said the language used by King "has no place in America" and added that he wouldn't allow such words to continue "to stand and have any role with us".

The next day, King apologized for the comments, saying, "I reject that ideology". "I'm having a serious conversation with Congressman Steve King".

McCarthy, now the top Republican in the House upon Paul Ryan's departure from Congress, did not elaborate on what actions he planned to take against King, whether it would be to ask for King's resignation, support a primary opponent, or simply censure the Iowa lawmaker. Numerous other party leaders, including House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), Sen. The Congressional Black Caucus, a group of lawmakers now composed entirely of Democrats, has called for King to be stripped of his committee assignments.

"If Republicans really believe these racist statements have no place in our government, then their party must offer more than shallow temporary statements of condemnation", CBC Chairwoman Rep. Joni Ernst tweeted a statement condemning King. On Friday, in a House speech, he expressed regret for the "heartburn" his remarks had caused. He also told CNN, "I'd like to see an America that's just so homogeneous that we look a lot the same". Republicans have chided him for his remarks but the Congressional Black Caucus has a form of punishment for King: removing him from all of his committee assignments.

The leader of the Republican minority in the U.S. House of Representatives said Sunday that "action will be taken" against Congressman Steve King, a Republican lawmaker from rural Iowa who has questioned why the terms "white nationalist" and "white supremacist" are offensive. We are a great nation and this divisiveness is hurting everyone. King has insisted he is an advocate for "Western civilization", not white supremacy or white nationalism. "We can not continue down this path if we want to continue to be a great nation", she wrote Saturday morning.

Cruz declined to say whether he'd support King in the future, but he called white nationalism evil and brought up his criticism of the Tarrant County GOP's vote on whether to remove a Muslim City Council member Thursday. State Sen. Randy Feenstra, R-Hull, announced this week he'd seek the Republican nomination, facing the nine-term King.
