Ilhan Omar Refuses to Comment on Terrorist Recruitment in Her District

By PJ Media. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) declined to address a report that found the highest level of terrorist group recruitment has taken place in her congressional district.

According to a Fox News report from February, “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. . .

“What steps are you taking to deter extremism and the recruitment from terrorist organizations going on in your district?” she was asked. (Read more from “Ilhan Omar Refuses to Comment on Terrorist Recruitment in Her District” HERE)

Ilhan Omar Owes Minnesota $4,000

By The Jerusalem Post. The Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board last week ordered Rep. Ilhan Omar to reimburse $3,469.23 in campaign funds that were improperly directed to accounting expenses and out-of-state travel. She must also pay a $500 civil fine.

Specifically, the board found that Omar made a $1,500 payment to her lawyer, which was used to reimburse the accounting firm Frederick and Rosen Ltd. The payment was made so the campaign committee could independently obtain Omar’s tax returns and rebut a blogger’s accusation that she married her brother.

“During the investigation, the Omar committee provided responses explaining that after Rep. Omar won the primary for Minnesota House of Representatives District 60B in August 2016, a blog posted an article with allegations that Rep. Omar was not married to the person she referred to as her husband, and that she was actually married to her brother as part of an immigration scheme,” it explained in the report published by the State of Minnesota board. “The Omar committee created a crisis committee to respond to the allegations.” (Read more from “Ilhan Omar Owes Minnesota $4,000” HERE)
