Breaking House Democrats Are Taking Action to censure Ilhan Omar’s

The latest anti-Semitic insult from Ilhan Omar has angered Democrats who are, holding the Congresswoman accountable for saying; others in Congress supporting Israel have an “allegiance to a foreign country.”

Now it’s reaching a climax in the House, and is presenting a firm decision to censure the Congresswoman this week.

“House Democratic leaders will put a resolution on the floor Wednesday in response to controversial remarks about Israel from Rep. Ilhan Omar.

The resolution, which is still being finalized, comes after a backlash from Jewish lawmakers who accused Omar of anti-Semitism for referring to pro-Israel advocates’ “allegiance to a foreign country.”

Speaker Nancy Pelosi and top Democrats are confronting a new controversy involving freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has defied her colleagues’ calls to apologize for recent comments viewed as anti-Semitic.

Public scrutiny over the Minnesota Democrat intensified over the weekend as two of the House’s most senior Democrats condemned Omar’s remarks accusing pro-Israel advocates of “allegiance to a foreign country.” And the problem threatens to get worse for Democratic leaders, with Omar refusing other lawmakers’ pleas to retract her statements.
