The number of people calling for Ilhan Omar’ removal from Congress has grown and in fact, s0ome people are calling for her expulsion from Congress, the revocation of her citizenship and deported back to Somalia. That may be impossible if she is indeed married to Tim Mynett, an American citizen. And even expulsion from the House is doubtful since you can count on RINOs to vote in Omar’s favor or to vote present or vote not at all. She will continue to support terrorists from within Congress.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) sparked calls for her removal from Congress over the weekend after she is a Somali first and a M8uslim second with no mention of America at all. She also said she is the Somali advocate in Congress and that she will continue to fight for the Somali cause. I wasn’t aware that Somalia was entitled to voice in the US Congress let alone a vote or advocacy. Omar claims the translation is erroneous and gives a false impression of what she said.
I got calls from a lot of people saying, “Ilhan, you need to talk to the U.S. government; what is the government of the U.S. doing?’”My answer to their question was that the U.S. government will do what we tell them to do about it. We need to be confident in ourselves. We live in this country; it is the country that we pay tax to, and it is the country that one of your daughters is in. As long as I am in the U.S. Congress, no one will take a way in the Somali sea or water. And I will not support the U.S. government in supporting other people to rob us. Rest assured that it will not happen, Minnesota. The lady that you sent to Congress knows about you, and she feels your interest like you all do.
Omar made the remarks on Saturday while speaking at an event at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis celebrating the recent re-election of Said Abdullahi Deni as the President of the Puntland State of Somalia.
Omar’s remarks come as there have been recent tensions between Ethiopia and Somalia over Somaliland. Ethiopia reportedly came to an agreement with Somaliland that would recognize Somaliland as a country independent from Somalia in exchange for Ethiopia, which is a landlocked country, gaining access to 12 miles of the coastline in the region through a lease agreement.
Somalia flatly rejected the agreement, saying in a statement: “There is no space for mediation unless Ethiopia retracts its illegal [memorandum of understanding] and reaffirms the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Somalia.”
According to a professional translation of Omar’s remarks acquired by The Daily Wire from an international translation service, Omar referenced the agreement between Ethiopia and Somaliland: “A few days ago, we heard the news about some people claiming to be Somalis getting into an agreement with Ethiopia.”
We were profoundly surprised, even shocked on discovering the remarks made by Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D) of Minnesota in a recent public forum, widely circulated on most social media platforms and attached below for your reference.

A translation of Omar’s remarks that appeared in the video clip that went viral on social largely aligns with the translation provided to the The Daily Wire in conveying Omar’s overarching message, which is that she is advocating for her homeland from inside the U.S. Congress, and that it seems to be one of her top priorities, if not her top priority.
