Ilhan Omar says it is ‘un-American’ for ICE to detain illegal immigrants

BREITBART:

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) believes it is “un-American” for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to detain illegal immigrants, and on Twitter Thursday evening, she called for the agency to be defunded.

“ICE is requesting 500 beds from Sherburne County to detain immigrants,” she wrote. “It’s un-American to criminalize immigrants for wanting to come to this country for a better life. This is why ICE needs to be defunded”:

Omar failed to differentiate between legal and illegal immigrants in the tweet.
