Press Release

Washington, DC – Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY) issued the following statement regarding Rep. Steve King’s Twitter post that, “we can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies”:

“Steve King’s repugnant comments have no place in our society and are unbefitting of a Member of Congress. I have served with Steve King on the House Small Business Committee and have been frequently outraged by his anti-immigrant remarks. This, however, is a new low and I call on all honorable Republican Members of Congress to forcefully denounce these hateful remarks by their colleague.”
