Embattled Congresswoman Ilhan Omar surprised audience members at a speaking event this week; arguing the United Nations should be “brought in” to handle the immigration crisis at the US-Mexico border.
“Listen, we’re really losing our moral high ground… It doesn’t make any sense for us to be committing these kinds of human rights violations. To have these policies in the way that we interact with migrants and asylum seekers,” said Omar.
“If we want to continue to be the kind of country that condemns countries in Africa or Asia or Latin America for its treatment of refugees… We should do what any other country that’s dealing with this situation. We have to bring in the United Nations,” she added.

Omar exploded on the Trump administration earlier this week; viciously accusing the White House of “targeting dehumanizing, and impoverishing” minorities across the United States.
“This administration just okayed deporting children with cancer. There’s no length Trump isn’t willing to go to target, dehumanize, and impoverish black and brown people,” posted Omar on social media.
