Why Criminal Prosecution Might Be The Least Of Ilhan Omar’s Legal Concerns

    From the "Immigration woes", files: Why Criminal Prosecution Might Be The Least Of Ilhan Omar’s Legal Concerns: Rep. Ilhan Omar needs competent immigration counsel to ensure that there is no threat of her losing her citizenship, or, worse, deportation.

    The Department of Justice has reportedly assigned an FBI special agent to work with Immigration and Customs and Enforcement and the Department of Education Inspector General Charge to investigate Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for alleged criminal violations relating to perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, state and federal tax fraud, federal student loan fraud, and bigamy.
    ...
    For Omar to have automatically acquired citizenship, she must also have been lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence, and there are reports questioning the legality of her admission as a refugee.
    ...
    Steinberg has alleged that Omar assumed her name from an unrelated family that was being granted refugee status. Although I have no way to independently assess the veracity of this report, there is circumstantial evidence that this type of immigration fraud was rampant in the circumstances under which Omar was admitted to the United States.
    ...
    If she is convicted for tax evasion where loss to the government exceeds $10,000, she will be removable for having an aggravated felony conviction, which also precludes her from applying for asylum. If she is convicted for marriage fraud, she would be ineligible to be sponsored if she were to marry a U.S. citizen. Needless to say, the worst-case scenario is very bleak

    Oh, let me guess - because criminal prosecution is a right wing fantasy with zero basis in fact? You know, like claims that Hillary would be locked up, or that millions of illegal voters took away Donald's popular vote win, or that he had a landslide EC win, or that his inauguration was the most attended in history, or that he'd repeal and replace Obamacare, or that Mexico would pay for the wall?

    What reports? Who has claimed this, based on what evidence? What documentation exists to back up these 'reports'?

    Given the direction Trump and his supporters want to take this country in, all we have to do about Ilhan Omar is wait a little. Soon it will be possible to arrest her for blasphemy and she can be made to disappear without the bother of criminal prosecution.

    It started a few years ago with a Minnesota reporter. Seems someone was snooping around on Omar's Facebook page and found inconsistencies between her official story and comments made by her friends. That's the origin of the accusation that she married her brother to sponsor him into the United States.

    Based on what I've read of it there is grounds to investigate it. And it's likely all true.

    Good thing she isn't an ambassador in a country fighting against Russia. Then the gloves would really come off.

    After all, right wing rumors about the citizenship of non-white Democratic politicians have been dead-on in the past.

    Rather than filtering information through your racial or political views you should look into these things for yourself and find out what the facts are.

    Or he could do like you did, and decide its probably true based on someone saying someone elses old Facebook posts look odd.

    A dark-skinned Democrat with a non-Anglo name being treated like they don't belong in this country. Where have I seen this before?

    And Republicans wonder why they're the ones constantly accused of being bigots?

    Or deny even the possibility of it without bothering to look at anything?

    We all know that the Department of Justice has been corrupted and weaponized to go after Trump's enemies.
    Let's not focus on this deliberate diversionary tactic and focus on the impeachment trial.

    You would think that people allegedly against Socialism wouldn't let her live rent-free in their heads for so long...
