Omar Goes BERSERK, Says It’s ‘Un-American’ For ICE To Detain Illegals, Demands Agency Be Defunded

Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar believes it is “un-American” for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to capture and detain illegal aliens.

And, she wants the agency defunded because she doesn’t believe the work ICE does every single days matters.

Omar took to Twitter to respond to a report from MPR News, which detailed how the unprecedented influx in illegal aliens apprehended at the border has resulted in immigration officials not having enough space to hold them all.

MPR News reported that Sherburne County “sent the preliminary proposal in response to ICE’s request for additional detention space within 100 miles of its St. Paul field office at Fort Snelling, county officials confirmed.”

The detention space only holds 300 beds for ICE, which is why it asked for the expansion.

“ICE is requesting 500 beds from Sherburne County to detain immigrants. It’s un-American to criminalize immigrants for wanting to come to this country for a better life. This is why ICE needs to be defunded,” Omar wrote.

As evidenced by her tweet, Omar is arguing that immigrants are being criminalized, and she even refused to call them “illegal” immigrants.

Omar’s logic is also incredibly twisted.

Why is it “un-America” for immigration officials to apprehend and detain those who broke the law to enter the country?

Since becoming a member of Congress in January, Omar has come under fire for making several anti-Semitic and controversial remarks.

Two weeks ago, Omar smeared conservative people of faith and insulted pro-life Americans during an off-the-rails speech on the floor of the House of Representatives.

During her rant, Omar took issue with conservatives and their pro-life stances on abortion, as if wanting to preserve the life of a baby in a mother’s womb is a bad thing.

“The recent efforts like those in Alabama, in Georgia, are only the latest in a long history of efforts to criminalize women for simply existing, to punish us when we don’t conform to their attempts to control us,” Omar said.

“But because it’s happening here with the support of the ultra-conservative religious right, we call it religious freedom,” Omar said.

Omar added: “This isn’t about religious morality or conviction because we’ve seen time and time again those that talk about their faith and want to push policies because of their faith are the ones that simply are caught with the hypocrisy of not living it out in their personal lives,” Omar added.

I am frustrated every single time I hear people speaking about their faith and pushing that on to other people because we know those so-called religious politicians, when it comes to their life, their choices, they want to talk about freedom,” Omar continued.

During an interview before that on the Nation’s “Next Left” podcast, Omar insulted Trump voters and called them “ignorant.”

While speaking on Capitol Hill late last month, Omar declared that, “This is not going to be the country of white people.”

Before that, she was swiftly condemned for describing the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks as “some people did something.”
