Steve King's 'racist' immigration talk prompts calls for congressional censure


With the 2016 midterms, Congress will be changing.  According to news reports, Democrats have said that they have heard enough from Congressman Steve King, whose immigration rhetoric has prompted calls for Congress to formally censure the Iowa Republican. 

At a rally one day before the midterm elections, King was recorded in Webster City, Iowa, speaking about jalapeño peppers when he referred to immigrants as "dirt," according to The Weekly Standard. "I guess I'm going to have to go and get some dirt from Mexico to grow the next batch," King said, prompting a supporter to interject, "Trust me, it's already on its way."
