Anti-Semitic Dem Rep. Ilhan Omar falsely blames ‘white nationalism’ for forced outdoor detention of illegals

On Thursday, Ilhan Omar, the anti-Semitic Minnesota Democrat who doesn’t think Donald Trump is human, blamed “white nationalism” for the fact that the Customs and Border Patrol at El Paso was so overwhelmed by illegal immigrants that it had to temporarily detain them outside.

“This is abhorrent and inhumane,” she tweeted.  “It’s without a doubt a reflection of what white nationalism is doing to our country. As a country, we have to acknowledge that this is how people are being treated here and decide that we are better and we must do better.”

Of course, Omar failed explain how, exactly, “white nationalism” allegedly caused thousands upon thousands of immigrants to come to the border, nor did she note that authorities are so overwhelmed that the system is at the breaking point and many of these illegals are being released into the country after a cursory background check.

According to the Washington Post:

The nation’s top border official warned that the U.S. immigration enforcement system along the nation’s southern boundary is at “the breaking point” and said Wednesday that authorities are having to release migrants into the country after cursory background checks because of a crush of asylum-seeking families with children.

Kevin McAleenan, the commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said that for the first time in more than a decade, his agency is “reluctantly” performing direct releases of migrants, meaning they are not turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, they are not detained, they are not given ankle bracelets to track their movements and they are allowed to leave with just a notice to appear in court at a later date.

He said that this is a “negative outcome” but that it is “the only current option we have” because of overcrowding at detention facilities as Central Americans stream to the border knowing they will be able to gain entry with asylum claims.

“Crossings have been overwhelmed with hundreds of migrants seeking asylum daily; Border Patrol stations are crammed and have no space for detainees; the immigration court system is backed up with hundreds of thousands of cases; and health services are having to triage batches of patients who have a variety of ailments and communicable diseases,” the report adds.

If Omar really cared about these individuals, she would either vote to fund a border wall or vote to provide adequate facilities to handle what can only be seen as an invasion.  But that makes sense.

Our colleagues at Liberty Unyielding asked Omar a very relevant question:

Good question.  We won’t hold our breath waiting for an answer.  That’s because she doesn’t HAVE an answer.  Her idea of a “solution” is to blame white people, which sounds rather racist to us.  And ignorant.

Perhaps this Twitter user is onto something:

Perhaps she should use that as a campaign slogan.
