Ilhan Omar – along with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – is one of the highest profile freshman members of Congress.
But like Ocasio-Cortez, Omar is in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
And Ilhan Omar just admitted something about one crime that will shock you.
Open borders is one of Omar’s pet causes.
The Minnesota Congresswoman never misses an opportunity to slam immigration enforcement as white supremacy and demand opening the borders to millions of illegal aliens.
Omar even went so far as to rip the concept of “illegal immigration” itself in one recent tweet.
She claimed it unfairly paints migrants as criminals.
“The word illegal alone, in the context of immigration, casts a dark and misleading cloud implying that immigrants who cross a border without authorization have no rights.” https://t.co/P0G32XCcuU

The simple fact of the matter is that if you break a country’s laws, you are technically a criminal.
Nation’s have borders and immigration laws to maintain order, sovereignty and a shared sense of purpose.
It is well within any country’s rights to regulate the flow of people who cross its borders.
Omar does not believe that to be the case.
Democrats claim they are not for open borders.
But not one leading Democrat will rebuke Omar for encouraging illegal immigration by saying it isn’t even a crime.
That’s because deep down they all agree with her.
They just try not to express those feelings out loud because they know they are political poison.
However, Omar has no such filter.
And her comments help provide the contrast Donald Trump wants to establish as he heads into his re-election campaign.
