Ilhan Omar has an terrible lot to be grateful for, but she isn't grateful. She slammed Carlson for attacking the congresswoman instead of celebrating her as an achievement "of what a special country this is", pointing out that the Omar originally came to the US with her family fleeing a life of fear and insecurity.

"Maybe we are importing people from places who are simply antithetical to ours", he said, describing Omar. Who knows what the problem is, but there is a problem and whatever the cause, this can not continue. The Romans were the last to try that with predictable results.
Since she was elected to represent Minnesota in the 2018 midterm election, Omar has quickly risen as a key member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. She's a living fire alarm, a warning to the rest of us we better change our immigration system immediately.
