You’ve already dismissed this thread as hogwash. Why are you still here?

All the more reason for the law to be applied equally.
Melania wasn't 12 when she lied her way into "employment" in this country, was she?

No one is going to get deported so take that one right off the table.
Omar paid her fines for lying and cheating.

All Omar has to do now is say "You're racist" and walk away.

Minor or adult, she was ILLEGAL, period. She has no right to be dictating laws in a nation is not legally residing in. She needs to be removed from her congressional seat.

Itís not her fault what her parents did when she was a minor. Thatís the only defense I can offer her.

Right...but that does not negate the fact that she should not be here.

What bothers me about this is the fact that sharia law really is creeping it’s way into America. When you have communities of Muslims performing “faith marriages” outside of US law, leading people to commit tax fraud among other things, that’s a problem. We have laws governing marriage in the US. They take precedence over any “faith”.

so..are you going to allege that she faked these documents, or maybe the 'mystery' continues just like the Obama is a Muslim crap until she rolls out some incontrovertible proof which still won't be believed, remember the Hawaii birth certificate drama?

Quote:
During an interview, Omar showed a reporter cellphone photos of documents from her family’s U.S. entry in 1995 after fleeing Somalia’s civil war. She declined to provide copies of the papers, which included refugee resettlement approval forms and identification cards, but they appeared to list her father, siblings and Omar by order of birth, with Omar as the youngest of seven children. No one named Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, who is three years younger than Omar, could be seen listed in the documents.

“For someone like me, who left a war-torn country at the age of 8, who got refugee status to come to America, where in the world am I finding a sibling 15 years, 20 years later to seek to do what people accuse me of?” Omar said.
