You won’t believe who Ilhan Omar is bringing to the State of the Union
Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is drawn to controversy like a moth to a flame.
This time she is determined to make a spectacle out of Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech.
And you won’t believe who Omar is bringing as her guest.
Younger Democrats like Omar believe open borders are a moral imperative.
They reject any claims of American sovereignty and want illegal aliens from all over the world to pour across our borders.
Trump pledged to crackdown on illegal immigration and secure the borders in order to put American First.
Globalists like Omar reject any suggestion that immigration policy should reflect what best benefits American workers.
To that end, she is making a show of herself at the State of the Union by inviting a Liberian immigrant scheduled for deportation to be her guest to Trump’s State of the Union speech.
The Hill reports:
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) announced Monday that her State of the Union guest will be a Liberian immigrant who is facing possible deportation due to a Trump administration policy change.
Omar said in a statement that her guest will be Linda Clark, a Minnesota resident who has lived in the U.S. since 2000, after fleeing Liberia due to an ongoing civil war.
“Linda is exactly the type of American success story we should celebrate,” Omar, a Somali immigrant herself, said in the statement. “Someone who came to this country seeking a better life, played by the rules, and built a life for herself.”
Omar’s statement said that the Trump administration’s decision to end Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) for Liberian Americans means Clark and thousands of others may be removed from the U.S. in the coming months.
Democrats are moving in an increasingly radical direction on immigration.
Base voters reject any enforcement of immigration laws as “white supremacy.”
And they cheer Omar as a ”rock star” for openly flaunting federal immigration law.
Some Democrats worry that this outright rejection of border security will doom the party in 2020.
But it looks like that train has already left the station.
