She doesn't represent American values by any stretch of the imagination. Jihadist values, sure.
Right, and you think Trump does? Now talk about irony!

From Politifact.com

Quote:
Several media outlets, including the Associated Press and her hometown paper, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, have delved into this question and Omar’s personal history.

In a June 23 article, the Star-Tribune wrote that it "could neither conclusively confirm nor rebut the allegation that he is Omar’s sibling." That echoed the conclusion by Snopes.com in February 2019, that "the evidence uncovered thus far isn’t definitive enough to come down on one side or the other." PolitiFact was unable to reach a conclusion during the 2018 election cycle.

What’s really made it hard is that she’s been unwilling to address any of these questions. That has fueled the controversy.
More than "the base" conspiracy theory - these are left leaning publications saying this.

Yes, she did marry her homosexual brother so that he could enter the USA. Omar is guilty of immigration fraud, tax fraud, and a host of other crimes. You just need to educate yourself.

Yes and that has always been the stance of intelligent people. The operative word being "intelligent". Birtherism is a fungus.

We're so lucky that we the people get to locally choose our representation, without reference to the opinions of those outside our districts.
There is no place for jihadists or their sympathesizers in American society, much less in the U.S. government.

She needs to get deported.

How about if we just point out that she's lousy on policy?

Social media is the source of that one. People believe anything that seems to validate their perceptions.

Allegations are meaningless unless/ until proven.

The AP, Star Tribune and Politico have delved into this one Thus far, they have not been able to identify facts to confirm or refute the allegation.

Trump has the CIA, FBI and SS at his disposal. He alone is in a position of knowing what’s what. Yet, Trump engages in gossip and follow up with “ I don’t know”.

She doesn't "need" to be deported at all. She is a citizen of the United States, and her freedom of speech is protected just like any other citizen's. If you don't like that, perhaps you should be the one looking to move.
