Rep. Ilhan Omar---Married Her Brother?

Former Seattle Times journalist, and now nationally syndicated conservative columnist Michelle Malkin has researched the widespread use of "marriage fraud" to illegally enter the United States.

Many---including Malkin--- are wondering why the House of Representatives won't look into the matter concerning Rep. Ilhan Omar and her brother.

Be informed.

I'll be talking about the impact of the Robert Mueller press conference yesterday on our live radio program today. Here's how to join me from anywhere in the world. 

Michelle Malkin's article---"Revoke Ilhan Omar's Marriage Fraud Immunity Card" ---was published in a number of publications yesterday.

In it, she notes just how widespread marriage fraud is, and how it's being used to scam our immigration laws.

An overview of how widespread it is.

Malkin says this:
In Texas last week, 96 people were indicted on federal charges of conspiring to defraud our immigration system by arranging phony unions between American citizens and sham spouses in Vietnam.
In Bridgeport, Connecticut, three men pleaded guilty to participating in fraudulent marriages with noncitizens and sponsoring them for green cards under false pretenses.
At Fort Bragg in North Carolina last month, two soldiers and two African immigrants were indicted by a grand jury related to a scheme involving an entire ring of service members who attempted to match female soldiers with foreigners from Ghana and Nigeria. They each face between 15-35 years in federal prison and $250,000 in fines each.
In Alabama, an Indian national pleaded guilty to arranging 80 fake marriages using U.S. citizen recruits to bail out Indian foreign nationals who had overstayed their visas or Student Exchange Visitor Program requirements.
Eight Mideastern men who plotted to bomb New York landmarks in 1993 all obtained green cards and permanent legal residence by marrying U.S. citizens.
El Sayyid A. Nosair put a ring on American Karen Ann Mills Sweeney’s finger to avoid deportation for overstaying his visa. He acquired U.S. citizenship, allowing him to remain in the country, and was later convicted for conspiracy in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing that claimed six lives.
Top Osama bin Laden aide Ali Mohamed became a U.S. citizen after marrying a woman he met on a plane trip from Egypt to New York. He was convicted for his role in the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Africa that killed 12 Americans and more than 200 others.
A year after 9/11, Homeland Security officials cracked a vast Middle Eastern marriage-fraud ring for illegal immigrants in “Operation Broken Vows” that stretched from Boston to South Carolina to California.
Faisal Shahzad, the 2010 Times Square bomb plotter, married an American woman, Huma Mian, in 2008 after spending a decade in the country on foreign student and employment visas.

There's much more, but these are some of the more high profile cases.

Malkin says,
"Anyone capable of and willing to lie to federal officials in face-to-face interviews, falsify government forms under penalty of perjury, and conspire to undermine the integrity of our immigration system is a threat to our country. Terrorism is not the only concern. Other complex criminal organizations are often involved. Even nations governed by open borders loons like Canada’s Justin Trudeau take marriage fraud seriously. Last week, the government moved to strip a Chinese national of his fraudulently acquired Canadian citizenship after paying a woman $5,000 to enter a sham marriage."

So what about Rep. Ihan Omar and her brother?

A number of people have been looking into this matter since 2016.

WND published an article---"Did Ilhan Omar Marry Her Brother?"---They, too, conclude that all the evidence points to the fact that Omar married her brother to beat the system.

While Omar vehemently denies she has defrauded the country by using marriage, and Left-leaning "Snopes" says there isn't enough evidence---there actually is a good deal of evidence.

Investigations by conservative media outlets PJ Media and Alpha News have uncovered so much evidence that Associated Press found the facts compelling.

AP lays out a pretty compelling story using various sources that Omar was likely married to her brother and she has defrauded the government. I encourage you to read it.

Because of her lack of cooperation, some documents are not available.

AP quotes the StarTribune in Minneapolis: "Omar owes a fuller explanation to Fifth District voters---and soon."

Omar's response:

“We recognize how these folks are deeply invested in stopping a progressive, Black, Muslim, hijab-wearing, immigrant woman,” Omar said. “We know these people are part of systems that have historically been disturbingly motivated to silence, discredit and dehumanize influencers who threaten the establishment.”

Malkin is pretty sure that Omar is not leveling with the people and the government---and this is not a "conspiracy" that threatens the establishment, that has been directed at her because of her religion or ethnicity.

Malkin says:
"Hey, I'm not the one who bragged last week that Omar, a naturalized American citizen, brought 'the perspective of a foreigner' to her role on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. That was Rep. Omar. Perhaps she'll share her 'foreign perspective' on how any other sane nation would handle an elected official who won't answer questions about possible felony immigration fraud while sitting on a sensitive legislative panel. I'm all ears."

As I mentioned Tuesday in this column, Franklin Graham is calling for a national day of prayer for President Trump. He's asking Christian pastors and leaders and citizens across the nation to join in a united prayer for the President this coming Sunday (June 2 ).

The need for such a prayer is abundant.

Be informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.
