Ilhan Omar, a Minnesota Democratic Rep., a Muslim and a newcomer to Congress, is already causing controversy, with a sequence of anti-Semitic remarks, al-Qaeda defense, reporter explosions, and alignment with the Democratic Party’s extreme left faction.
She’s already the target of a petition demanding her resignation.
The Homeland Security Department is now being encouraged to explore her and start deportation or other removal proceedings.
Former Justice Department prosecutor Larry Klayman presented the petition to DHS, adding a request this week that the House of Representatives “research, consider and take remedial action” on the problem.
The latest controversy was explained by Siraj Hashmi in a commentary in the Washington Examiner.
Hashmi said the Democrats are facing “a political crisis” with a couple of new lawmakers drawing “the ire from both parties over their stance on the relationship between the US and Israel.”
Omar, along with fellow Muslim Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan were criticized for “remarks about Israel that were rooted in anti-Semitism.”
Before entering Congress, Omar tweeted, “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
Rashid Tlaib and Omar have accused Jewish Americans of dual loyalties. Omar complained in a tweet last month that a Jewish organization that supports Israel influences U.S. elections. “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” she wrote, even though the organization she targeted doesn’t donate to political campaigns.
The complaint to DHS was forwarded this week to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and various committees.
“Rep. Ilhan Omar, according to extensive reporting by investigative journalists, married her own brother in a sham marriage constituting immigration fraud (while still with her first husband). The basis of Omar’s citizenship remains murky, yet her own U.S. citizenship could also prove to be invalid. The sham marriage certainly invalidates her brother’s citizenship and Omar could be prosecuted. Conviction of a crime – or ties to terrorist organizations – could also cause Omar to lose her naturalized citizenship,”
NBC News revealed that Congress ‘ present effort “started as a new attempt to condemn anti-Semitism in the aftermath of the recent controversial remarks by Rep. Ilhan Omar.” But it extended into a wide-ranging argument among Democrats “exposing profound fault lines.”
