For quite some time, it’s been an established fact that Rep. Ilhan Omar has absolutely no love for the United States of America. In addition to making a plethora of anti-Semitic statements over a period of years, Omar has previously dismissed the tragedy of 9/11 as “some people did something.” What’s even more unfortunate than Omar’s obvious loathing for America (a nation where she was elected to serve in government) is the Democrats’ tolerance of her shenanigans.
Omar’s latest display of disrespect comes in the form of accusing the United States of committing human rights violations against illegal immigrants at the Southern Border. Breitbart News reports Omar’s statements that the United Nations ought to get involved in the situations which are happening at the Southern border. Apparently, the congresswoman takes issue with the fact that Border Patrol officials are not simply allowing migrants to illegally cross the border.
A Closer Look at Omar’s Latest Accusation Against the U.S.
During Omar’s recent visit to Minnesota, the congresswoman maintained that America is treating illegal immigrants like criminals “when they have not committed a crime.” This, in and of itself, is an inaccurate statement. Unlawfully crossing the United States border IS a crime; however, Omar’s analysis is not shocking, given that so many people in her party are supportive of government-sanctioned illegal immigration.
Nevertheless, Omar called for the United Nations to involve themselves in the situations at the border and slammed America for not allowing illegal immigrants to pour in at will.
In the congresswoman’s own words:
“It doesn’t make any sense for us to be committing these kinds of human rights violations, to have these policies in the way we interact with migrants and asylum seekers if we want to continue to be the kind of country that condemns countries in Africa, in Asia, or Latin American countries for its treatment of refugees and asylum seekers.”
None of these statements are out of character for her; Omar has branded Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers as “militarized, brutal, and unaccountable” and called for the abolition of the institution altogether.
The Face of the Democrat Party
Omar, and other radical Democrats like her, have become the face of the Democrat Party, something which President Trump has pointed out many times. Leaders within the party continue to put up with elected officials making wild, outlandish statements, such as Omar’s, and it’s truly unfortunate.
Enforcing the immigration laws is not a human rights violation, by any stretch of the imagination. This idea that officials at the border are criminals is absolutely outrageous and Omar ought to be ashamed of herself for suggesting this. As long as Democrats continue to support illegal immigration and demonize members of law enforcement, their party will continue to suffer on various levels.
