The novel coronavirus strain, COVID-19, continues to disrupt life around the world.
With the global threat of coronavirus affecting daily life, the government has shut down most activity.
And Ilhan Omar made a dangerous coronavirus demand. And it may destroy our nation.
The left is getting more radical by the day.
The party has moved from supporting the people of this country, to caring more about those who have committed a crime by entering this country illegally.
And Ilhan Omar just proved that for the entire nation to see.
The Minnesota representative just called for a halt on all deportation amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
This is a dangerous suggestion from Omar, as it could lead to a surge of immigrants entering the country illegally, knowing that they would not run the risk of being deported.
This would be an opportune time for those who want to smuggle drugs and commit human trafficking crimes to slide into the country.
It could also welcome more refugees to enter this country, seeking medical help and continuing the spread of the coronavirus.
The Daily Caller reports:
Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar is leading the call for a complete freeze on immigration enforcement measures across the country, citing the coronavirus pandemic as the reason.
Omar and a group of 14 other Democratic congressmen issued a letter on Friday to acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf, demanding that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) suspend all deportations, freeze in-person immigration court proceedings, and provide a plan for the possible event of a COVID-19 outbreak in immigrant detention facilities.
Omar and her fellow Democrats further tried to manipulate the situation, using the tragedy of the coronavirus pandemic to further their own radical agenda.
“Immigration detention facilities, even before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, have been breeding grounds for illness,” the Democrats wrote. “For detainees who are immunocompromised or otherwise susceptible to the worst consequences of contracting COVID-19, holding them in detention may be literally a matter of life and death.”
Omar then attempted to twist the truth of this pandemic and the fear it has caused to further drive home her point.
“Deporting people who may have been exposed to coronavirus to either countries that have few or no cases or to countries with weak health care infrastructure is an unacceptable risk to take,” they continued. “Many countries, including the United States, are implementing strict border controls during this pandemic, and we should make no exception for ICE Air and deportations.”
The Democratic lawmakers, however, are asking for a complete freeze on deportation proceedings. It’s not immediately clear if aliens accused or convicted of heinous crimes, such as rape or murder, are an exemption to their request.
But Omar has long been a vocal opponent of ICE, calling for the agency to be shut down.
She has even gone as far as to call for the abolishment of the Department of Homeland Security, stating that illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay without prosecution.
Omar could even be using this in order to escape her own run-in with ICE.
Omar herself is reportedly under investigation by ICE for alleged marriage fraud. However, neither the agency nor the FBI has commented on the matter.
