Ilhan Omar’s relatively recent moment of clarity notwithstanding, the leftist congresswoman from Minnesota is ultimately bad news. Terrible news, in fact.
It’s not easy to defeat an incumbent — even one with as much baggage as Ilhan Omar — but fellow Somalian American Shukri Abdirahman has decided to try:
Ilhan Omar was given a second chance when America took her in — but chose to ridicule the very country that saved her life.
When I was welcomed as a legal American citizen. I responded by joining the U.S. Army.

A Somalian American refugee who loves and respects her adopted home. Go figure! See, Ilhan, it’s possible.
Well done…WELL DONE https://t.co/dF9craFsbv
