Press Release

WASHINGTON - Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) issued the following statement after the House passed a resolution rejecting white nationalism and white supremecy. This resolution follows Rep. Steve King's comments to the New York Times, asking "White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?”, which prompted Minority Leadership to remove Rep. King from his committee roles.

"It's about time Republican Leadership took action against GOP Rep. Steve King—who is a stark, raving racist—for his repeated bigoted and xenophobic statements. I urge Republican Leadership now to look at the statements made by the occupant of the Oval Office."
