Rep. Ilhan Omar’s citizenship in jeopardy as she now needs competent immigration counsel to ensure that there is no threat of her losing her citizenship, or, worse, deportation.
“The Department of Justice has reportedly assigned a special FBI agent to work hand in hand with Immigration, Customs and Enforcement and the Department of Education Inspector General Charge to investigate Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for alleged criminal violations relating to perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, state and federal tax fraud, federal student loan fraud, and bigamy.” The Federalists reported.
This recent case against Ilhan Omar is a big one, as it is believed she immigrated to the United States in 1995 and became a citizen in 2000 at age 17, the problem here is, she was underage at the time.
Individuals under 18 are ineligible to apply for US citizenship, this would mean Omar’s naturalization was done by another means.
David Steinberg has covered the Ilhan Omar saga over the years and has openly questioned whether she is who she says she is.
early on Thursday that he was “not happy” with supporters who chanted, “Send her back,” during his scripted rant against Rep. Ilhan Omar on Wednesday night, Donald Trump abruptly contradicted himself and praised the baying mob.
“These are people that love our country,” Trump said later on Thursday — echoing his defense of the white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, who chanted, “Jews will not replace us,” as “very fine people.”
The president amplified his praise for the crowd on Friday, when asked if he regretted the tweet that inspired the chanting — in which he had first suggested that Omar, and three other Democratic congresswomen of color, should be deported for criticizing his policies. “These are incredible people,” Trump said of the “Send her back” chorus, and then withdrew his statement that he had been unhappy with them. “What I’m unhappy with,” he said, is “the fact that a congresswoman can hate our country.”
Later on Friday, Trump claimed, falsely, that the crowd’s chanting had been motivated not by his lies about Omar and her colleagues but by “terrible” things “they’ve said about our country” and Israel. “You just can’t talk about our country that way,” Trump said, “and when people are angry at them, I fully understand it.”
On Thursday afternoon, Trump also blatantly lied about what happened during the televised rally in North Carolina the night before, offering the preposterous claim that he had stopped the chanting against the Somali-American congresswoman by “quickly” speaking over the din.
In fact, when the shouts of “send her back” erupted from the crowd near the end of Trump’s three-minute diatribe, filled with distortions and lies about the Minnesota Democrat, Trump paused for 13 seconds, as the call to deport a congresswoman was repeated eight more times.
