Omar Releases Video Statement on 9/11 “19 years ago, our country changed forever”

Rep. Ilhan Omar released a video statement this morning on the memorial of 9/11.

Omar wrote “19 years ago, our country changed forever.Today and every day, we remember the lives taken on 9/11 and the brave first responders who risked everything.”

She added “I will continue to fight to support our first responders and families who lost loved ones.”

Last April, Omar sparked a firestorm by referring to the tragic event as “some people did something” during a CAIR event.

“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar said.
