ILHAN ERUPTS: Omar Says It’s ‘Shameful’ that Joe Biden is Continuing to Build Trump’s ‘Racist Wall’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.08.21

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar publicly rebuked President Biden Wednesday over reports his administration is continuing to construct key segments of Donald Trump’s border wall to “plug gaps” between the United States and Mexico.

“It’s shameful and unacceptable for @POTUS to continue the construction of Trump’s xenophobic and racist wall,” posted Omar on Twitter.

 

Wyoming Senator John Barrasso confirmed over the weekend that members of the Biden administration instructed him to “delete pictures” taken along the US-Mexico border as part of an effort to obstruct the media’s access to the crisis.

“We were told to delete the pictures. No one did. You’ve seen the video coming out of all of these kids crammed together under the foil blankets, huddling together,” Barrasso told Fox News.

“They are crammed in like sardines,” Barrasso added. “This is what the Biden administration is trying to hide from the American public.”

Vice President Kamala Harris was appointed by Joe Biden to oversee the administration’s handling of the border crisis nearly two weeks ago but has so-far failed to deliver any major address on the issue.

Instead, Harris used her time this week to meet with minority-owned businesses in Oakland, California.

“Her assigned efforts on immigration, which includes overseeing diplomatic efforts with Northern Triangle countries, fit into a broader trend of the administration delegating substantial foreign policy responsibilities to her. For example, she has held calls with major world leaders like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu,” reports Fox News.

“Since the beginning of the administration and a week after Biden’s announcement, Harris has fielded questions from the media but has yet to hold a formal press conference. Meanwhile, the border crisis captivated the nation’s attention and raised a series of concerns about national security and the stability of the U.S. immigration system as a whole,” adds Fox.

“So this new surge we’re dealing with now started with the last administration, but it’s our responsibility to deal with it humanely and to – and to stop what’s happening,” Biden said last Wednesday.

“And so, this increase has been consequential, but the vice president has agreed – among the multiple other things that I have her leading – and I appreciate it – agreed to lead our diplomatic effort and work with those nations to accept re- – the returnees, and enhance migration enforcement at their borders – at their borders.”

OMAR ERUPTS AGAIN: Ilhan Omar Blames Border Crisis on ‘White Nationalism’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.29.19

Recently sworn-in Congresswoman Ilhan Omar weighed-in on the country’s escalating border crisis this week; baselessly blaming the migrant caravan’s arrival in El Paso on “white nationalism.”

“This is abhorrent and inhumane. It’s without a doubt a reflection of what white nationalism is doing to our country. As a country, we have to acknowledge that this is how people are being treated here and decide that we are better and we must do better,” tweeted Omar.

The embattled legislator made national headlines weeks ago when she accused American politicians of supporting Israel due to secret campaign donations and a “dual loyalty” to the Jewish State.

OMAR ERUPTS AGAIN: Ilhan Omar Claims Israel Denying ‘Freedom’ to Millions, Mocks Their ‘Democracy’

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.20.19

Embattled Rep. Ilhan Omar continued to escalate her fiery rhetoric against Israel this week; saying their government is denying “freedom” to millions of Palestinians while mocking the Jewish State’s “Democracy.”

“We in the United States have a constructive role to play. We give Israel more than $3 billion in aid every year. This is predicated on them being an important ally in the region, and the ‘only democracy’ in the Middle East,” mocked Omar.

“We must be asking, as Israel’s ally, the Netanyahu government stop the expansion of settlements on Palestinian land and ensure full rights for Palestinians if we are to give them aid,” she added.

Omar posted a massive, anti-Israeli tirade on social media Friday, just hours after she was denied entry into the Jewish State for her outspoken support of multiple boycott initiatives.

“Let’s be clear: the goal of our trip was to witness firsthand what is happening on the ground in Palestine and hear from stakeholders —our job as Members of Congress. But since we were unable to fulfill our role as legislators, I am sharing what we would have seen,” she posted on Twitter. “First, I planned to hold meetings with members of the Knesset (both Jewish and Arab) along with Israeli security officials.”

“The humanitarian crisis in Gaza is one of the worst in the world—with 97% of water unfit for human consumption and on the verge of collapse. Most of the people in Gaza are children,” she added. “77% of shops have closed bc of military occupation. Palestinians walk with garbage nets above their heads, put up to catch trash thrown by settlers. Violent attacks on Palestinians are routine.”
