Recently sworn-in Rep. Ilhan Omar unloaded on US authorities and Border Patrol Agents this week; accusing federal immigration officials of “torturing” and detaining “little girls” along the US-Mexico border.
Rep. Omar was speaking at a press conference alongside fellow Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib at the US Capitol when she made her vicious comments.
“The difference between what is happening to some of those little girls and me is that I didn’t have a cage waiting for me,” Omar said. “They are separated and processed. They are detained and tortured. And we can’t continue to allow that to happen. At least not under our watch.”
