Ilhan Omar Mocked for Huge Gaffe While Calling to End Funding for DHS

Newly elected Rep. Ihan Omar is now calling to defund the Department of Homeland Security.

However, she is also now being widely mocked for complaining about TSA workers not getting their backpay yet.

Omar apparently was not aware that the TSA is funded by DHS, which she wants to defund.

Fox News reported that Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., continues her streak of controversial tweets, this time taking aim at the Department of Homeland Security.

In a tweet Friday night, the freshman congresswoman refers to President Trump as “Individual 1,” and insists he doesn’t have “public support” to “ram his hateful wall through Congress.”

“Let’s stand firm: #Not1Dollar to DHS,” Omar then urges fellow Democrats.


Despite working for the federal government, Muslim congressman Ilhan Omar, a Democrat, doesn’t appear to understand how the federal government actually works. She’s not alone.

Roughly an hour after she posted a tweet Friday complaining about Transportation Security Administration workers not having received their government shutdown back pay yet, she posted another tweet calling for the defunding of the Department of Homeland Security.

It’s not clear whether Omar, a close friend of equally brilliant congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, realizes that the TSA is a sub-agency within DHS, meaning that were DHS defunded, her friends in the Transportation Security Administration would be receiving no future pay.

Omar is among four radical Democrats — one of them a socialist, two of them terrorist sympathizers and anti-Semites and a fourth an anti-white racist — pining to defund DHS.

“Cut, do not increase funding,” Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley wrote in a letter to their colleagues last week. “The deal reached by the Conference Committee should not allocate any additional funding to this department or to the ICE and CBP agencies.”

President Donald Trump prematurely ended the government shutdown last month on the stipulation that “[a] bipartisan conference committee of House and Senate lawmakers” would soon “put together a Homeland Security package” that would address his desire for enhanced border security.

In the letter submitted last week, Omar and her peers argued that DHS should instead be defunded for allegedly abusing its authority. As examples, they cited the child separation scam and even the justified prosecution and deportation of criminal aliens.

The Muslim congresswoman is clearly serious about defunding DHS. What she doesn’t appear to grasp is that if DHS were defunded, the TSA would also be defunded. This means her friends at the agency would either have their hours cut or be laid off odd entirely, as noted by social media:
