ILHAN OMAR: Americans Have a ‘Moral, Ethical, Legal’ Responsibility to Take Care of Migrant Children

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.02.21

Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar weighed-in Thursday on the escalating border crisis; saying Americans have a “moral and ethical” responsibility to help migrant children seeking asylum in the United States.

“This really is a reminder that we have a moral and legal responsibility to provide that opportunity for these kids. And it’s also the ethical thing to do. This is an issue that’s very personal for me,” said Omar.

 

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

“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 Says President Trump ‘Targeting Immigrants and People of Color’

Embattled Rep. Ilhan Omar continued her all-out attack on President Trump Wednesday; viciously accusing the Commander-in-Chief of “explicitly targeting immigrants and people of color.”

“This President has explicitly targeted immigrants and people of color at every turn. We need an urgent legislative fix for thousands of Minnesotan DED recipients. That’s why I’m supporting the Dream and Promise Act,” she tweeted.

Omar’s comments come days after she made national headlines over a series of anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli statements; claiming American politicians have a “dual loyalty” to the Jewish State.

OMAR ERUPTS AGAIN: Omar Slams 'Occupation' of Palestine, Says She Won’t ‘Pledge Support’ to Israel

Embattled Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar raised eyebrows -yet again- across the country over the weekend; posting a series of tweets where she refused to “pledge her support” to Israel and blasted the “occupation” of Palestine.

“I am told everyday that I am anti-American if I am not pro-Israel. I find that to be problematic and I am not alone. I just happen to be willing to speak up on it and open myself to attacks,” she posted on social media.

“I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee. The people of the 5th elected me to serve their interest. I am sure we agree on that!” she added.

New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind slammed Omar’s anti-Israeli rhetoric Sunday; saying “On this week’s episode, she’ll talk about Jewish power, money and dual loyalty!”
