Anything less than kicking him out of the party and Congress is a "tacit acceptance of racism from the Republican Party," says Rep. Karen Bass.
Rep. Steve King's (R-Iowa) comments on white supremacy and white nationalism have sparked a call by the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to kick him out of government altogether.
"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," said, CBC Chairwoman Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) in a statement.
"Instead, they must actually condemn Mr. King by removing him from his committee assignments so that he can no longer affect policies that impact the very people he has made it clear he disdains."

Trump's immigration policies go beyond political lines.
Coming off the heels of political chaos at the border, Americans are still feeling emotionally affected by Trump's family separation immigration policy.
According to the Washington Post, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant, called the Red Hen, while out to dinner with friends.
"The cheese course was already on the table" when the owner pulled her to the side and asked that she leave because of her political party's policies.
The Post reported that the owner, Stephanie Wilkinson, politely refused to serve Sanders because "Sanders works for and defends an inhumane and unethical administration."
"I'm not a huge fan of confrontation," Wilkinson said. "I have a business, and I want the business to thrive. This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals."
However, the decision to ask Sanders to leave seems to boil down to basic human ethics rather than because of her being simply a conservative.
Just last week, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirsten Nielsen was heckled by a crowd of protesters while eating at a Mexican restaurant in Washington, D.C.
According to CNN, Nielsen was sitting quietly in back of the MXDC Cocina Mexicana restaurant, not too far from the White House, when she began getting booed and sarcastically questioned:
"Aren't you a mother too?"
"How do you sleep at night?"
"Do you hear the babies crying?"
"If the kids don't eat in peace, you don't eat in peace."
Those are many examples of statements that seem to have less to do with being a Republican, and more to do with being undoubtedly immoral.
Dean Obeidallah, a former attorney and political op-ed contributor for CNN, expressed similar observations regarding recent oppositions.
"Let's make it clear, this is not about asking someone to leave or heckling them simply because they are Republicans or conservatives," he wrote.
"That would be wrong. This is about targeting people who are very publicly involved in formulating and defending Trump's immoral policies."
Obeidallah pointed out that people didn't yell, "Get out of here because you're a Republican" but instead made chants that were specific to Trump's family separation immigration policy literally, "speaking truth to power."
Additionally, Trump is just a percentage point away from former President Richard Nixon when it comes to the total of Americans who want him impeached, according to Newsweek.
And though Sanders was offended by Wilkinson requesting that she leave by – ironically – writing, "I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so. Her actions say far more about her than about me," Wilkinson has no regrets.
"I would have done the same thing again," Wilkinson said. "We just felt there are moments in time when people need to live their convictions. This appeared to be one."
Aaron Rich is suing for defamation, saying conservative figures and media have behaved with "reckless disregard for the truth."
Nearly two years after his death, Seth Rich's family is still dealing with a nightmare from the conservative media that continues pushing conspiracy theories surrounding his murder. But they're not taking it lying down.
The president knows exactly how to feed his base. That's why you don't hear Republicans complaining or even criticizing. Meanwhile, the old white man billionaire administration and its agenda keeps rolling along.
Trump knows exactly what he's doing. After being told by the Mercers that he had to fire Bannon, he had to prove to his base that he is indeed the real king of Shithole Country.
He did that by giving his base a little of the "he's saying what we're all thinking" magic, a phrase I often heard from white people during the campaign (admit it, white people, you heard it too).
The President of the United States said, "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"
But you know what? He's right! Not about the people emigrating, about the shithole country within our own borders.
We are already infested with millions of people in states that chronically drag down our economy. States that dramatically lag — and have for 100 years — in national averages for per capita GDP, healthcare, and education, and exceed national averages on opiate prescriptions, poverty and social security disability recipients (Alabama is #1, Mississippi is #5). States that take more federal money than they give. Laggard states are where the core of Trump's 35 percent support base lives. People who welcome and reward overt appeals to racism. People who enable the white billionaire's agenda.
So go burn a cross. Worship in a hate-filled tax exempt "church." Tell your little joke about mud people. Fly the flag of your defeated nation over your statehouse. Erect statues of defeated generals and war criminals like Bedford Forrest. Cheer your president. But I don't want to pay for it with my taxes anymore.
We have to stop talking about "unconscious bias" and start acknowledging chronic and overt bias, bigotry and sexism. The things that got the president elected. We need to stop "sensitivity training" and start firing people! Fire them now. Reason? You violate our values! You're offensive! And you drag down productivity.
We all owe Trump a debt of gratitude. There's no point in pretending there are good people on both sides. Trump has proven the futility of trying to accommodate the citizens of the shithole country within our own borders. We have to live with them, I suppose, but no more welfare and white affirmative action!
Don't work for companies that tolerate shithole people. Divest yourself and your company of them. As you escort them out, don't resist the urge to say, "Pssst, Mexico isn't paying for a wall. AMF."
Finally, we white people need to take ownership of the mess we created. An environment where calling Mexicans rapists wasn't a career ending event. An environment where the white Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and the white Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are silent on the fitness of this old white man president. We own this, I don't care who you voted for.
Oh, and by the way, my ancestors came from countries that were considered shitholes when they emigrated.

"The Trump campaign is racist, sexist, anti-gay. It's a divisive campaign that's now dividing law enforcement."
The endorsement of Trump by the Fraternal Order of Police appears to have driven a wedge between many Black cops and their white brothers in blue.
Republican Congressman Robert Pittenger blamed Black resentment of whites as the reason for the protests, not police injustice.
Black citizens in Charlotte are not necessarily protesting due to police injustice, but rather because they "hate white people because white people are successful and they're not," according to a U.S. congressman who represents a district in that city.
A meme on Donald Trump Jr.'s Twitter account has numerous racist origins — including an anti-Semitic children's book published in 1938.
