THAT WAS QUICK: Anti-Israel Rep. Ilhan Omar Wants to Defund the Department of Homeland Security
Far-left extremist Congresswoman Ilhan Omar doesn’t just want to defund Immigration and Customs Enforcement — she now says she wants to defund the Department of Homeland Security as well.
The Somalian lawmaker also referred to President Donald Trump as “individual 1,” referring to the Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
“When Democrats stood our ground last month, we proved that Individual 1 does not have the public support to ram his hateful wall through Congress,” Omar tweeted. “Let’s stand firm: #Not1Dollar for DHS.”

The tweet was ratioed in a big way — with nearly 3,500 comments and only 1,900 likes at the time of writing this.
The Minnesota Congresswoman has previously made excuses for a 2013 terrorist attack, claiming the attack which left 71 people dead and over 200 wounded was “a reaction” to “our involvement in other people’s affairs.”
Additionally, as a Minnesota state representative, Omar asked a judge to show leniency for a group of men who were convicted of trying to join ISIS.
“The best deterrent to fanaticism is a system of compassion,” Omar wrote in a letter to the judge presiding over the case. “We must alter our attitude and approach; if we truly want to effect change, we should refocus our efforts on inclusion and rehabilitation.”
One of the men she had asked for compassion for had told the judge, “I was not going there to pass out medical kits or food. I was going strictly to fight and kill on behalf of the Islamic State.”
