Fresh off her victory as the first refugee, the first Somali-American, and one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress, Democrat Ilhan Omar said Wednesday that she is going to Washington to help "serve as a check on the rhetoric of fear and division."
Congress needs to make "sure we are moving the country in a "direction that is more hopeful, inclusive and prosperous," Omar said the morning after winning her election in Minnesota's 5th district with 78 percent of the vote.
Omar spoke during her campaign about her opposition to President Trump's travel ban against Muslim countries.
"When I was coming to this country, I heard about it's promises," she said. But those promises, she said "aren't extended to everyone." "I couldn't sit on the sidelines," she said.
In addition to her other "firsts," Omar is first person born on the African continent to be elected to Congress.

Want a “direction that is more hopeful, inclusive and prosperous”?
Support Donald Trump.
she was the one who was allegedly married to her own brother, in order to commit immigration fraud.
She’ll be pushing Sharia. It’s all they know.
“I couldn’t sit on the sidelines,” ...
A lot of your people can’t. So they kill others.
So just STFU.
WTF happened to Ohio?
What does she think of feminism?
What does she think of FGM? Wife beating? Horribly cruel method of slaughtering animals for halal meat?
Bit late what with all of the known wolf atracks but thanks anyway.
The Communists will continue to install more of their own ilk in government too to push back on hysteria against creeping Marxism.
Does she want SHARIA LAW instituted here?
Does she also support the take over of this nation, by Muslims?
I bet that the answer to all three questions is YES.
Not Ohio. Minnesota. I believe it’s Ellison’s old district.
Just HOW was that "marriage" legal here, to begin with?
She also recently tweeted how Allah is God and that Israel is evil..Yep, this is who Democrats in MN elected
More prosperous? Like Somalia?
‘Kill all infidels...’
-that kind of rhetoric?
Yet she hates and fears Jews and the nation of Israel.
