ILHAN’S PLAN: Omar Says Hunger in America Like ‘Refugee Camp in Kenya,’ Calls for ‘Universal School Meals’

Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar directly compared America’s childhood conditions with a “refugee camp in Kenya” on social media over the weekend; calling for “universal school meals” for students across the United States.

“11 million children in the U.S., a nation of tremendous wealth, face the kind of hunger I experienced in a refugee camp in Kenya. It’s unacceptable that our students go hungry and into debt for not having lunch money. Children’s futures depend on making school meals universal,” posed Omar on Twitter.

Omar introduced a package of new proposals Wednesday called the ‘Pathway to Peace’; outlining her vision of what American foreign policy should look like in the 21st century.

“Today, I am proud to introduce the Pathway to PEACE, a bold vision that prioritizes multilateralism and diplomacy over militarism,” posted Omar on social media. “I believe that when the United States says it champions human rights, democracy, and peace, we should mean it!”

“I now get to have the honor and the privilege of using my experience and perspective to create a vision for a world where there are no young girls living through war, there are no nations being destroyed,” she added.
