Democrat house minority leader Nancy Pelosi called on GOP leaders to remove Republican Steve King from his committee chairmanship over controversial tweets about immigration. King praised right-wing Dutch prime minister candidate Geert Wilders, who criticized a lack of cultural assimilation of immigrants in western Europe. “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies," Geert Wilders wrote. Speaker Paul Ryan's office released a statement on Monday disagreeing with the statement, but Pelosi argued the response wasn't substantial. “Steve King’s racist statements must be called out as unacceptable, and the tepid, brush-off response from the Speaker and the GOP leadership is disgraceful,” Pelosi.
