Would someone pretty please with sugar on top get Ilhan Omar a dictionary? And if she’s still confused by what the word ‘alien’ actually means perhaps break out the puppets and crayons?
No one is an "alien."
This is family separation on a massive scale.
Dehumanizing immigrants and tearing apart families will not make us any stronger. It will only destroy lives, traumatize children, and make our country less safe. https://t.co/a8q9YV3AGX

Ilhan should probably sit this one out … but hey, at least she didn’t claim Trump is running concentration camps at the border.
It has been an exceptionally stupid day.
What part of “Illegal” can’t you understand?

Actually Omar, up until about 10 years ago it was part of the government vernacular and it is not a derogatory term. Only until the social justice movement did it become considered racist or derogatory. But I would only expect a recently conscripted ALEIN to whine about it.

Actually, people who ignore our nation’s right to sovereignty, are illegal aliens. Alien is a perfectly good word and no amount of redefinition changes the reality.

Actually many are “aliens”.
See US Code, IRS Code, etc.https://t.co/3WHsTaAqwT

Ooooh, it’s the legal term for someone in our country illegally.
Unless they're an ILLEGAL ALIEN. You could look it up.

But then she’d have to actually admit Trump isn’t being a big ol’ racist meanie in his tweet.
That's the legal term, genius.

Alien: (adjective) belonging to foreign country or nation.
This isn't that hard. 🤷

Which is probably why it confuses her.
Alien is merely foreign.
Foreign still means foreign.

Then maybe they should stay at home 💁🏽♂️

Get a dictionary please.
Alien- belonging to a foreign country or nation.
It's not dehumanizing to utilize a word accurately depicting the situation

Ok, it might well be time to break out the puppets and crayons.
