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.

ILHAN UNDER FIRE: Nancy Pelosi Jabs Ilhan Omar at Annual AIPAC Conference
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi took a swipe at Rep. Ilhan Omar at the annual AIPAC convention this week; saying in ‘Democratic societies” no one should question another’s “loyalty or patriotism.”
“In our Democratic societies, we should honor legitimate debate on how best to honor our values and to advance our priorities without questioning loyalty or patriotism,” said Pelosi.
