According to Rep. Ilhan Omar, she believes it is “un-American” for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to capture and detain immigrants (notice, she doesn’t use the word “illegal”) and now she wants the agency defunded.
Omar tweeted this on her timeline: “ICE is requesting 500 beds from Sherburne County to detain immigrants,” she wrote. “It’s un-American to criminalize immigrants for wanting to come to this country for a better life. This is why ICE needs to be defunded”:

As you can read in the tweet above, Omar claimed that immigrants were being criminalized, but if you have been keeping up on current events, with regular Americans know this to be is “illegal” immigrants.
That’s one of those fear tactics Democrats have been pushing over the last 5-8 years, and without any pushback from Republicans, it remains out there for Americans to dislike Republicans even more, especially if they are informed voters and non-voters.
According to MPR News, Sherburne County, “sent the preliminary proposal in response to ICE’s request for additional detention space within 100 miles of its St. Paul field office at Fort Snelling, county officials confirmed. ICE’s deadline for proposals was May 20. It’s not clear when the federal agency will decide whether to pursue them.”
The detention space only holds 300 beds for ICE, which is why they asked for expansion.
For someone who shouldn’t be serving in our Government based on her continued anti-Semitic views and attacks on our way of life, Omar has blended in well with the liar’s club on the left side of the aisle. Many of my friends believe Omar is not here to conform to our system of Government but to reform it and disobey our laws. Pure mockery.
I have to question whether Omar and the other ‘foreigners’ should be here at all. They show no loyalty or respect for our country, our laws, or our way of life. It seems Rep. Nancy Pelosi needs someone to pass intel off to foreign power now that Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz Pakistani agents have fled the country and Sen. Diane Feinstein under the watchful eye after her Chinese Spy was outed. I guess Omar is a perfect choice, eh?
She swore an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the USA and the laws thereof, but she refuses to do so. Anybody else thinks this is grounds for expulsion?
