What to Know About Ilhan Omar, the Former Refugee Who Won Minnesota’s Democratic Primary By Sarah Nechamkin@sarahnechamkin WOMAN’S PLACE IS IN THE HOUSE AUG. 15, 2018 thecut.com
“..What’s her political background?
The former refugee gained traction two years ago, when she became the first Somali-American elected to a state legislature in Minnesota by defeating a 22-term Democratic incumbent. Because her district, which encompasses Minneapolis and its surrounding suburbs, is reliably liberal, she is widely expected to take the House seat.

Why is she a big deal?
Not only would Omar be the first Somali-American to hold national office; she would be joining Rashida Tlaib — a Palestinian-American who won her Democratic primary in Michigan and will be running unopposed — in becoming the first two Muslim women in Congress…”

Trump Stuns: Ilhan Omar ‘Was Married to Her Brother?’ – YouTube

Did Ilhan Omar marry her brother? Her hometown newspaper investigated and told us what they found By Louis Jacobson on Thursday, July 18th, 2019 at 5:48 p.m. politifact.com
“…• In 2016, as Omar was seeking a state House seat, the conservative website AlphaNewsMN, followed by other ideological sites, posted a screenshot of an Instagram post — since deleted — that was allegedly uploaded by Elmi on June 12, 2012, shortly after Omar gave birth to her third child. The caption of the photograph identified Elmi as holding the baby girl, calling her “nieces.” To some, this suggested a sibling relationship…”

The Baseless Attacks Against Ilhan Omar Are BS

Ilhan Omar has been the subject of conspiracies and disinformation attacks that falsely claim she’s connected to 9/11, married her brother, said white men should be put in chains, and more. None of that is true — and it’s easy to prove.

Rep. Ilhan Omar Has Been A U.S. Citizen Longer Than Melania Trump By David Moye POLITICS 07/15/2019 08:20 pm ET Updated 3 days ago (7.19.19-Today) huffpost.com
Donald Trump presumably doesn’t question his wife’s right to criticize her adopted country.

“…On Monday, CNN’s Jake Tapper noted an interesting comparison in relation to the fourth congresswoman, Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, who immigrated to America as a child from Somalia and became a U.S. citizen as a teenager.

“Longer than the first lady,” Tapper noted.

Omar became a citizen in 2000 at the age of 17, while Melania Trump became a citizen six years later at the age of 36, a year after she married the future president…”

“…Kalhorn, confirming that the man had been fired, tells Yahoo Lifestyle, “The comments of this associate are not reflective of the core values of Bucky’s Convenience Stores,” and that the company is working to “ensure that all customers are treated with respect.”

However, Kalhorn notes that he believes the situation has been exacerbated due to the recent Twitter tirade involving Trump and “the Squad” of minority Democratic congresswomen.

“I think the whole thing has been blown out of proportion because of the situation in Washington and there not being anything done about immigration at the border,” says Kalhorn…”

Neutral Perspective: “Racism” or “Not”?

California teacher held at border checkpoint: “It made me feel sick to get asked” Last Updated Jul 26, 2017 3:13 PM EDT cbsnews.com
“.. A California teacher posted a video of border patrol agents detaining her after she refused to say if she was a U.S. citizen at a checkpoint in New Mexico, about 35 miles from the border.

The video has many wondering if she was within her rights or had an obligation to comply.

When San Diego resident Shane Parmely was stopped at a New Mexico border patrol station she refused to answer the agent’s questions. She was heading home from vacation with her three children and asked one of them to start recording the exchange.

The videos have generated thousands of views on Facebook and sparked a heated debate on immigration rights.

The middle school teacher says she did it after hearing her Latino friends talk about their experiences at checkpoints.

“It made me feel sick to get asked, knowing what my friends have been through. It just made me feel physically ill,” Parmely said. ..”

When a police shooting victim is a white woman-
The sympathetic reaction to Justine Damond’s death shows the relentless power of race in America.

Updated by German Lopez@germanrlopezgerman.lopez@vox.com Jul 24, 2017, 1:10pm EDT vox.com
“…It’s not just Breitbart. Conservative media, based on some sleuthing on Google, has been generally quiet about Damond’s death — which is notable on its own, given that these outlets often counter what they see as liberal news narratives with their own narratives, particularly when it comes to police shootings. As one example, a Google search turns up four stories on the Blaze, the network founded by conservative pundit Glenn Beck, about Damond, but there are pages and pages of results from the Blaze for each of the killings of black men like Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, and Philando Castile.

When conservative outlets have written about Damond’s death, they by and large have framed her as a victim. Here is, for example, Fox News: “Australian woman shot dead by Minneapolis police after calling to report possible crime.” And here is the Blaze: “Questions swirl after Australian woman is fatally shot by Minneapolis police; bodycams were off.”

Damond’s lawyer played into this as well, calling Damond “the most innocent victim” of a police shooting that he has ever seen. He quickly added, “I’m not saying Philando wasn’t innocent, too, or that Frank Baker wasn’t innocent. But here is someone who called the police and was trying to stop someone from being hurt … and ends up being shot in her pajamas.”

Ranking victims of police shootings is odd enough, but there are plenty of totally innocent victims of police killings besides Damond. Consider that, in Detroit, police in 2010 killed a sleeping 7-year-old when they stormed her home while looking for her uncle — though this girl, unlike Damond, was poor and black…”

“..Tom Plunkett, Noor’s attorney, said the officer feels very bad for the family of Justine Damond. Plunkett also elaborated that Noor felt that being a police officer was a calling since he came to America.

“He joined the police force to serve the community and to protect the people he serves,” the statement read.

Noor joined the Minneapolis Police Department in March of 2015 and was later celebrated as the first Somali officer for the 5th Precinct.

After the officer was identified, people on social media noticed the difference in reaction to the case. ..”

Traffic had slowed Borjas’ car at a corner in Willowbrook, California, around 7 p.m. on July 4.

“..Laquisha Jones, a 30-year-old African American woman who lives in Los Angeles, was assisted by three or four other men who are still at large, police say. Here’s what you need to know:..

“She was yelling at him, ‘Go back to your country,’ or ‘Go back to Mexico,’” the witness said, via The Los Angeles Times. “It was racist.”

Rodriguez is from Mexico, but visits his family in Los Angeles often. The witness explained that while she was on the phone with 911, the men returned to continue beating Rodriguez…

One week after Mendoza launched the GoFundMe site for his grandfather, over 9,000 people have donated to contribute to the current $250,000 sum…

The witness did not photograph the other suspects who are alleged to have taken part in the attack, but identified them as African American males…

Many Twitter users are citing the Trump administration as a catalyst for this violent act, as seen above. Still others are claiming racism on the part of the media outlets who didn’t outwardly identify Jones as African American in their titles….

King has not replied to users about why he’s not commenting, though many are suggesting it’s because the perpetrator of the act is an African American woman. Some users are even alleging that King tweeted out news of the attack, then deleted the tweet upon finding out Jones’s race…”

Meanwhile, Latinos, whose populations started shifting north for economic opportunities in the U.S. and away from the civil unrest in South America, continue to trickle into the region by the tens of thousands every decade, adding around 280,000 to the Latino population between the same time frame…”
