Ilhan Omar: The more they hit out at her, the stronger she gets

Omar's full response ...:

This country was founded on the ideas of justice, of liberty, of the pursuit of happiness. But these core beliefs are under threat. Each and every day. We are under threat by an administration that would rather cage children than pass comprehensive immigration reform.

An administration that would rather give billionaires tax breaks than provide a little cushion for working people. An administration that would rather attack fellow Americans who are transgender and wear our country’s uniform than fight for equality and opportunity for all.

I did not run for Congress to be silent. I did not run for Congress to sit on the sidelines. I ran because I believed it was time to restore moral clarity and courage to Congress. To fight and to defend our democracy.

No one person – no matter how corrupt, inept, or vicious – can threaten my unwavering love for America. I stand undeterred to continue fighting for equal opportunity in our pursuit of happiness for all Americans.

Thank you for standing with me – against an administration that ran on banning Muslims from this country – to fight for the America we all deserve.

This doesn't mean I agree with everything she stands for. For instance, I'm anti-military. That said, I'd rather put up with the things where I disagree with Ilhan Omar than put up with the things where I disagree with Donald Trump. She has a greater appreciation, a greater sensitivity, for, and concerning, the real needs of typical Americans probably partly because she spent years in a refugee camp (really a prisoner of circumstances) largely due to the counter-productive foreign policy of the United States.
