WATCH: Dr. Qanta Ahmed believes Rep. Omar is a disgrace to Islam
Rep. Ilhan Omar wants to “eliminate the existence” of Custom and Border Protection (CBP).
But Dems don’t want open borders, right?
Rep. Omar said Congress should considering eliminating border patrol agencies this AM.

According to Fox News:
Appearing on the BET digital series “Black Coffee,” Omar grouped CBP with other “rogue agencies” lacking in accountability and transparency.
“We know that they have spoken in the most vile ways about immigrants. We know that they have certain views of what brown and black people deserve,” Omar explained. “And so we should be having a conversation about eliminating their existence [and] reforming the agencies that deal with the most vulnerable, who are children and women.”
I’m sorry… but over HALF of border patrol officers are HISPANIC.
She says they have certain views of what brown and black people deserve? REALLY?
And this whole “they HATE immigrants” thing has GOT to stop. For one, they’re doing their JOB to UPHOLD AMERICA’S LAWS. Secondly – the conflation of legal and illegal immigrants is ABSURD. I AM AN IMMIGRANT. I WAS NEVER HELD AT A DETENTION FACILITY. Why? Because I didn’t break any laws.
That’s NOT rocket science.
She added, “We are continuing to allow for them to terrorize people who are running away from the most horrific circumstances, and that’s… inhumane and that can’t sit well with the American values we have … about dignity and humanity.”
Omar previously called for the elimination of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). She also backed Ocasio-Cortez’s claim that the U.S. is essentially “running concentration camps” along the southern border.
These people clearly have no intention of having REAL conversations and finding REAL solutions. They’d rather just fearmonger and grandstand about RAAAACISM.
