Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar disparaged Border Patrol officers during a recent interview in which she implied that racial connotations play a role in immigration decision.
“We have rogue agencies that have no accountability or transparency in how they conduct their business,” said Omar, who went on to say “we should be having a conversation about eliminating their existence.”
Omar went on to suggest that immigration agents have “certain views on what black or brown people deserve” in terms of treatment in detention.

Omar’s remarks did not sit well with conservatives on social media, who condemned her comments as ignorant and untruthful.
Can’t stand to listen to her lies.

Everything she said is a LIE. “no accountability”?? Of course the CBP is held accountable. How does she know their views, she has never talked to them. What a load of crap.

It is time for the CBP to sue Omar for SLANDER….
(Do these Leftists have any other accusation to sling at those of whom they disapprove than “racist”?)
