I know what you’re thinking: Illhan Omar AGAIN?!?
Why won’t she just keep her mouth shut?
This time around, the controversial Democrat Muslim House Rep. tweeted on Tuesday to advocate for ICE to be completely abolished, calling it “brutal” and “unaccountable.”
Here’s the tweet:
Other Twitter users were quick to respond to the foolishness displayed in Omar's tweet, pointing out the consequences of getting rid of ICE would be dire.
Take a look at these response tweets:
Some people on Twitter made references to Omar's unpatriotic comments made awhile back about 9/11, which she flippantly disregarded as "some people did something..."
Omar's recent tweet echoed comments she made previously regarding Trump's merit-based immigration plan, in which she also advocated for the elimination of ICE.
Fox News has more details on what she had to say regarding the immigration plan a few weeks ago:
“Today the president has unveiled an immigration plan that makes no mention of DACA, a program Trump unilaterally ended in late 2017, that has been hanging by a thread thanks to court injunctions,” Omar began in a speech to liberal activists. “A plan that fails to make sure people with temporary protection status and deferred enforced departure recipients don’t have a path to a permanent status or citizenship. A plan that seeks to limit asylum seekers fleeing violence.”
Omar, a Somali refugee, insisted that Trump's plan would have a "devastating effect on millions of people around the world" like her and believed that the US, which she referred to as "beacon of hope for the world," should provide immigrants a "simple and accessible path to become documented" and not "dehumanize" them or "call them 'animals.'"
The Washington Examiner also had the following to say about Omar's call to get rid of ICE:
Rep. Ilhan Omar called on America to abolish ICE, to quit all deportations — to basically open U.S. borders wide to all who would cross, friend or enemy, apparently.
How did this woman manage to work through her oath of office without giggling?
After all, congressional members are sworn into their seats, and part of that swearing-in ceremony requires them to promise to protect America against all enemies, as well as to defend the Constitution.
How can there be a Constitution without law and order?
How can there be a country without protection of, and selection at, the borders?
“[T]he president has unveiled an immigration plan that makes no mention of DACA, a program [President Donald] Trump unilaterally ended in late 2017, that has been hanging by a thread thanks to court injunctions,” Omar said, in a videotaped speech that came in response to Trump’s border plan.
She said the plan unfairly fails to ensure a path to citizenship for those in-country on temporary protection status — for those fleeing violence and applying for asylum.
“Our nation is, and has always been, a beacon of hope for the world,” Omar went on, as Mediaite noted. “We should be welcoming immigrants into our country and providing them a simple and accessible path to becoming documented, not treating them like criminals or dehumanizing them by calling them animals.”
The “animals” reference is the left’s well-worn skewing of Trump’s long-ago reference to MS-13 gang members and others with criminal, thuggish intents.
The left is never very strict with the truth.
