Omar’s Blasted, Refuses To Address ‘Highest Terrorist Recruitment’ In Her District

Rep. Ilhan Omar is getting blasted after the FBI recently found the highest level of terrorist group recruitment is taking place right in the Minnesota district she represents. The controversial Congresswoman was confronted with the shocking news and is now getting blasted badly for her ridiculous response. You don’t want to miss this.

Terrorist recruitment is still going on at full force, and it just happens Ilhan Omar’s own district is the place the FBI has found the “highest terrorist recruitment levels.” However, it seems the Minnesota Congresswoman couldn’t care less.

According to a Fox News report: “More men and boys from a Somali American community in Minneapolis have joined – or attempted to join – a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country.”

The city of Minneapolis is located in Omar’s district.

“FBI stats show 45 Somalis left to join the ranks of either the Somalia-based Islamic insurgency al-Shabab, or the Iraq- and Syria-based ISIS combined. And as of 2018, a dozen more had been arrested with the intention of leaving to support ISIS,” stated the report.

Well, when one determined reporter showed up on Capitol Hill to confront Omar on this alarming news, the Muslim Congresswoman does what she does so well. She deflects saying she had no idea there was a report.

This is odd since she is on the Foreign Affairs Committee. 

“What steps are you taking to deter extremism and the recruitment from terrorist organizations going on in your district?” she was asked.

“I have not seen that report,” Omar replied.

PJ Media followed up, asking Omar, “It’s FBI stats but in general, what steps are you taking — what is your message to people who may want to join one of those groups within your district?”

Omar hurriedly walked away refusing to respond, which tells us she isn’t doing a damn thing to stem the tide of terrorist recruitment in her own district.

Minnesota’s 5th District is now is the biggest hotspot for terrorists looking to recruit extremists right on American soil. 

Americans are outraged at the shocking news and blasted Rep. Omar for her non-response.

“@Ilhan is a Trojan Horse, a Sharia plant, a terrorist, anti-Semitic, a fraud, a felon, and a thief. Why is Congress allowing this American enemy a seat in our House? @SpeakerPelosi @HouseDemocrats,” tweeted Twitter user “Ruthless.”

“Not very translucent of her, now is it. She has been given her marching orders. She is there to wreck things, and cause chaos,” tweeted Shelley Mack.

“⁦@NIACouncil⁩ ally Rep. Ilhan Omar is tongue-tied when it comes to questions about terrorist recruitment in her district. Perhaps she should focus on her own district instead of talking about Iranian activists – an issue she knows very little about,” tweeted Peter Kohanloo.

This isn’t the only problem Omar’s had recently. Michelle Malkin, who is a Fox News contributor and conservative journalist, exposed the Minnesota Congresswoman’s problems with potential tax fraud.

“My column two weeks ago on Ilhan Omar’s Marriage Fraud Immunity Card mentioned the Minnesota state investigation of her use of campaign funds for personal expenses related to her divorce, plus other spending for out-of-state travel,” Malkin said. 

“The report was released today on her shady spending practices in response to Minnesota state Rep. Steve Drazkowski’s complaints last year. She has been ordered to pay about $4,000 in reimbursements & fines, plus file amended disclosures,” Malkin concluded.

“The state board ordered Omar to personally reimburse her campaign for just under $3,500 the campaign spent on out-of-state travel for Omar and on her joint tax returns,” reports the Daily Caller.

Omar is also required to pay a civil penalty of $500 for using campaign funds to pay for her travel to a conference in Florida, where she received an honorarium for speaking.

The problem for Omar is the investigation found she used campaign funds to pay a tax attorney where she claimed joint status with her now husband. However, the years she filed jointly, the couple was not married.

Now, that’s the issue, and you bet investigators are now looking into her fraudulently filing jointly.

Through it all, the anti-Semitic Congresswoman blames everyone else by using the victim card. Omar called the man who brought the charges against her, Rep. Steve Drazkowski, a “bigot.” Last week, when she was caught redhanded and proclaimed guilty, Omar denied she had done anything wrong.

Minnesota’s 5th District deserves better. This woman is not equipped in any way to handle the place where we find the highest level of terrorist recruitment in the country. It’s time for Minnesotans to wake up before it’s too late.
