It’s no secret that Rep. Ilhan Omar and her sisters on the squad have been against deportations from their first day in office; the only variation on the theme is that sometimes the reasons change for wanting to abolish ICE. In this case, it seems that ICE isn’t concerned that it might be spreading the coronavirus to Somalia, where dozens of individuals (at least she knew enough not to call them citizens) are set to be deported.
First, they decided they had to let inmates out of prison to slow the spread of the coronavirus, and now Omar wants to cancel deportations to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
ICE is set to deport dozens of individuals from my district to Somalia, risking the spread of COVID.
ICE’s actions will not only put these individuals at risk, but could have far-reaching consequences for Somalia.
This week, I sent a letter to ICE to get answers.

Earlier this week, you said housing is a human right… let them all stay in your house.

You failed to mention why they were being deported; would you please do so.

Let’s first ask: why are they being deported?
Everything else is secondary and brought on by their actions

Question: Are they here illegally? There's your answer

Somalia Population: 15.01 million
Covid-19 cases: 3,371
Covid-19 deaths: 97
Hydroxychloroquine use: Over The Counter
I'd say your deportees are safer there than they are in Minnesota. TaTa

If the COVID-19 outbreak is so much worse in the United States than any other country, as the Biden campaign keeps insisting, Omar should be glad they’ll be sent to a safer nation.
Ilhan Omar pretends to care about ‘the lives and loved ones of all who died’ when some people did something on 9/11 https://t.co/i59btmHxZd
