Critics often accuse Ilhan Omar of being an apologist for Islamic terrorism.
Omar has denied these charges.
But Ilhan Omar made an admission that had everyone talking treason.
Recently, a federal Judge in Virginia struck down the government’s use of terrorist watch lists.
Muslim groups claim federal authorities used them to unfairly target members of the Islamic faith.
Law enforcement argued they were necessary to prevent terrorists from boarding planes and engaging in other sensitive activities.
Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib celebrated the ruling.
The Daily Caller reports:
Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar joined Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib in celebrating a court ruling against the use of terror watch lists by American law enforcement.
“This is tremendous,” Rep. Omar said. “Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard to make sure Constitutional rights are extended to all regardless of religion, race or ethnicity!”
Rep. Tlaib also chimed in, writing, “I have heard of horrifying stories of Muslim Americans who were placed on the so called ‘watch list,’ with no pathway (you know, due process!) to getting their names removed. Today, it’s Muslims, but tomorrow it can be you, if we don’t stop this madness.”
In a district court ruling in the Eastern District of Virginia this week, Judge Anthony Trenga ruled against the use of terror watch lists, saying that it violated the Constitutional rights of Americans placed on the list. Critics of the program include Muslim-American advocacy groups who alleged that the program unfairly targets and profiles Muslims.
The lawsuit was brought by the controversial Council on American Islamic relations.
Critics accuse the group of being a front for Islamic terrorists.
And it was at a CAIR event where Ilhan Omar dismissed the 9/11 terrorist attacks as “some people that did something.”
Omar celebrating a CAIR-backed case that potentially allows Islamic terrorists access to air travel is too much for many Americans to bear.
