Representative Omar also suggested that the only criteria the United States was using to deport illegal aliens was their socio-economic status. This claim is without evidence.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) demanded this week that the United States bring in the United Nations to handle the border crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, a move that would undermine the United States' national sovereignty.
Omar made the remarks on Tuesday while speaking to her constituents during an immigration forum in south Minneapolis.
Omar, who was accused this week of having an affair with a married man, lectured the audience about losing the "moral high ground" on the issue of immigration.
"We should do what any other country does by dealing with this situation in a serious way," Omar said. "So, we have to bring in the United Nations high commissioner on refugees, an agency that has the expertise and the training to handle massive flows of refugees humanely."
