Democrat congresswoman Ilhan Omar, a Somalian refugee, voiced her outrage on Twitter Thursday morning, after the news broke that a major ICE raid is planned for Sunday, in at least 10 major cities across the nation.

The New York Times reported Thursday that “two current and one former homeland security officials” who “spoke on the condition of anonymity” said the raids were to take place on Sunday, targeting at least 2,000 immigrants who have already been ordered deported but have never left the country.

Democrats have again condemned the deportations. Omar blasted out her fury in a series of Twitter posts, as she shared the NY Times article.  “#ICEraids are expected to begin this Sunday: **07/14**
Every person, including undocumented Americans, has rights if they are approached by ICE,” Omar began.

Omar then shared a guide for illegal aliens who might be approached by ICE, advising them that they had rights.  She wrote, “The @ACLU has put together a guide for your rights if you or someone you know is stopped and questioned by ICE. Read up on your rights and then share it with your friends and family.”

 

She then further slammed the upcoming deportations, tweeting the following statement:

These raids will dehumanize immigrants and tear families apart. This will not make our country any stronger. It will only traumatize children, destroy lives, and make our country less safe.

If you are an undocumented immigrant, please know that you are in my thoughts and that I will keep fighting to make our immigration system welcome all who seek a better life in our country.

 

Omar also re-tweeted a post announcing a new film about herself, in which she is scheduled to deliver opening remarks on Saturday in Philadelphia:

    Anyone, anyone, who aids and abets illegal immigrants (law breakers, should be arrested and charged with breaking the law. Politicians should not be allowed to break the law either. She is a public servant along with Cory Booker. This should not be allowed!

    Deport her too, she is a Traitor to America, Minnesota Lawyers are looking very closely at how many laws she has broken, she has repeatedly lied and is corrupt, this lawyer that spoke on Tucker said she needs to be taken out of Congress.
    If America doesn’t wake up and stop these people from infiltrating within, the country will be taken over, they have said this is their goal, why do we ignore what is so wrong and let them get away with their Hatred and destroying this country?
    This Lawyer said she uses the Race card and uses it to get what she wants, he called her mean, she is evil, they all use the Race card against those that question their behaviour.
    We have to start taking the country back before it’s too late.
    She need to be held accountable as Booker and others that are committing Treason against America.
