Our immigration laws need to be changed, Tucker is right. However, there are laws on the books now that address what should happen to a naturalized citizen that betrays and promotes hatred and rebellion against our country. As a naturalized US citizen, I love my country the USA and would never say the things she says even if I didn’t.
A GOOD READ—
Some fresh thoughts on immigration.
“In 1992, the United States welcomed 10 year old Ilhan Omar and her family into the United States. She was born in Somalia, one of the world’s poorest countries, ruled by a Marxist Military Dictator.
She and her family fled a terrible Civil War, and ended up in a refugee camp in Kenya. She spent four years there, until America offered Asylum, and they settled in Minneapolis.
Omar’s father drove a taxi at first, and then he got a job with the post office, the government.
Omar meanwhile, grew up free in the world’s richest country, and with all the Bounty that implies. She went to a State University, and a few years later was elected a member of Congress. She was elected by voters who were proud to see an immigrant succeed.
Omar, at the age of 36, is now one of the most powerful women in America. It’s an amazing story!
Only in America could this ever happened. Ilhan Omar has a lot to be thankful for!
But she isn’t grateful. At all!
And after everything America has done for Omar, and her family, she hates this country more than ever!
In a recent piece in the Washington Post, a reporter puts it this way …
“In Omar’s version, America isn’t the big-hearted country that saved her from a brutal war and a bleak refugee camp. It wasn’t a meritocracy that helped her to attend college or vaulted her into Congress.”
“Instead, it was the country that had failed to live up to its founding ideals, a place that had disappointed her and so many immigrants, refugees and minorities like her.”
Omar isn’t disappointed in America, she’s enraged by it! Virtually every public statement she makes accuses Americans of bigotry and racism. This is an immoral country she says. She has undisguised contempt for the United States and its people.
That should worry you.
She is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country. A system designed to strengthen America is instead undermining it. The people we try hardest to help, have come to hate us.
It’s maybe our fault, for asking too little of our immigrants. We don’t ask them to assimilate, so they never feel fully American.
Or maybe the problem is deeper than that, we’re importing people from places whose values are antithetical to ours.
But there is a problem. And whatever the cause, this is not sustainable.
No country can import large numbers of people who hate it and expect to survive. The Romans were the last to try that with predictable results.
So be grateful for ilhan Omar, annoying as she is. She is a living fire alarm, a warning to the rest of us, that we better change our immigration system immediately. Or else.”
