Omar Asked If She Married Her Brother; Her Response Says It All

Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar was asked last week about allegations that she supposedly married her brother, and her response says it all.

The Star Tribune, a left-leaning paper in Omar’s state of Minnesota, reports that the Democratic lawmaker has allegedly refused to answer their questions about the accusations that she committed marriage fraud.

Her response to the very serious allegations has been total silence.

Minnesota Star-Tribune editor Kevin Diaz told PolitiFact in an interview on Thursday that Omar has not responded to multiple inquires from his office about the allegations that she married a male relative, possibly her brother, and whether she and Ahmed Hirsi, her current husband, filed joint tax returns while Omar was married to another man, Ahmed Elmi.

“Our public records searches determined that in at least one period after she married Elmi, all three (Omar, Elmi and Hirsi) used the same address in Minnesota. It raises questions about the nature of the relationship if she is living with both the person she’s married to and her eventual husband,” Diaz said. 

“What’s really made it hard is that she’s been unwilling to address any of these questions. That has fueled the controversy. We quoted her at length to say that these were mere accusations, that they were unfair, and that she shouldn’t have to address them. Be that as may, there was an undisputed instance of her filing her taxes improperly. And if you’re in Congress, you should explain that to your constituents,” he continued.

 We’ve asked her these questions, and also asked her to make her father available. We’ve tried to reach Elmi. We’ve tried to reach her sisters. Her family could put this (the question of Elmi’s relationship to Omar) to rest easily. No one will talk to us. I wish we could send a reporter to Mogadishu (Somalia) but we don’t have the bandwidth,” the editor added. 

President Donald Trump gave fuel to the allegations surrounding Omar’s marriage last week.

While speaking to reporters outside of the White House, the president was asked about his recent feud with Omar and the other members of “The Squad” — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib.  

Trump replied: “There’s a lot of talk about the fact that she was married to her brother. I know nothing about it. … I’m sure that somebody would be looking at that.”

There have been several reports in the media questioning Omar’s marital history and whether she actually did marry her brother.  

The Star Tribune published a bombshell piece stating that “new investigative documents released by a state agency have given fresh life to lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to skirt immigration laws.”    

“Sent a list of questions and a request to talk to her siblings and father, Omar declined to do so,” the Tribune added. “Omar declined to make her tax and immigration records available for this report. … Omar’s relatives could also clear the air, but they have remained silent about her marriage … She declined to make her family available for this story.”   

The Washington Examiner also published a report last month offering more information on the alleged marriage to her brother and how she may have even fraudulently filed tax returns in 2014 and 2015.  

Dozens of official documents suggest that Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., was living with her current husband, Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, throughout her entire legal marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, contradicting the story she tells to explain her multiple marriages.

Elmi is the man that critics allege is her brother, as noted by the Star Tribune.

“Omar has denied the allegations in the past, dismissing them as ‘baseless rumors’ first raised in an online Somali politics forum and championed by conservative bloggers during her 2016 campaign for the Minnesota House,” the Tribune reported. “But she said little then or since about Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, the former husband who swept into her life in 2009 before a 2011 separation. 

“The questions surfaced again this month in a state probe of campaign finance violations showing that Omar filed federal taxes in 2014 and 2015 with her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, while she was still legally married to but separated from Elmi,” the Tribune added. “Although she has legally corrected the discrepancy, she has declined to say anything about how or why it happened. The new documents also detail the Omar campaign’s efforts to keep the story of her marriage to Elmi out of the press, arguing that detailed coverage would legitimize the accusations and invade her privacy.”

Omar refuses to answer questions about the matter or provide any documents that could clear up the controversy.

And the fact that Trump is now talking about it could lead to more information coming out.

Undocumented immigrants try to rush into US in ‘waves,’ spark showdown with CBP agents

One of the biggest ports of entry along the US-Mexico border had to be shut down on Friday after a group of undocumented immigrants — nearly 50 of them — attempted to rush into the United States in “waves,” according to federal officials.

The mad dash went down at the Pharr International Bridge in Texas at about 4 a.m., officials said, and sparked a showdown with Customs and Border Protection agents.

“A group of 47 undocumented individuals attempted to illegally enter the United States in three waves,” the agency said in a statement, according to KGBT.

“Ignoring commands to stop, the group suddenly rushed the temporary barricades, bent metal poles and disabled the concertina wire affixed to the barrier.”

Several CBP officers were assaulted during the mayhem but expected to be OK. They had to deploy tear gas and pepper balls in order to stop the group.

At least 16 of the immigrants were taken into custody by federal officers. Mexican authorities took the remaining individuals.

 

 

Parents told they could lose kids over unpaid school lunches

A Pennsylvania school district is warning that children could end up in foster care if their parents don’t pay overdue school lunch bills.

The letters sent recently to about 1,000 parents in Luzerne County’s Wyoming Valley West School District have prompted complaints from parents and a stern rebuke from local child welfare authorities.

The district says that it’s trying to collect more than $20,000, and that other methods to get parents to pay haven’t been successful.

County officials say children aren’t sent to foster care over their parents’ nonpayment of lunch bills.

In the wake of complaints, district officials say they plan to send out a less threatening letter next week.

 

Twitter Suspends Angel Mom for Posting About Illegal Immigration

Mary-Anne-Mendoza-and-Trump-640x480

Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza, who heads the Angel Families organization, has been suspended from Twitter after posting about illegal immigration and raising awareness about the harms of sanctuary city policies.

Angel Mom Mendoza’s son, 32-year-old police officer Brandon Mendoza, was killed in May 2014 by a drunk illegal alien who was driving the wrong way down a highway in Mesa, Arizona.

This week, Mendoza was suspended from her Twitter account and told she would not be able to sign back in unless she deletes a series of posts about crimes committed by illegal aliens and the impact of sanctuary city policies on American citizens.

Mendoza told Breitbart News that Twitter sent her a message claiming that some of her posts “go against” Twitter’s “standards on hate speech.” In order to sign back into her account, Mendoza said, Twitter has mandated that she delete the posts — something she said she will not do.

Mendoza’s posts called out 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) for her support for illegal aliens and sanctuary city policies, as well as raising awareness about illegal immigration’s impact on Americans:

“I’m disgusted and disappointed that Twitter is trying to silence me,” Mendoza told Breitbart News. “I had my world ripped out from under me the day my son was killed by a repeat illegal alien criminal. I am the ‘other’ side of this crisis and the end result of open borders and the careless release of illegal aliens at our borders because of time restraints.”

Mendoza said despite the Twitter suspension, her voice will not be silenced.

“I will not be silenced in my warning calls of what could happen to any American citizen in the blink of an eye as it did to me,” Mendoza said. “As an American citizen whose beautiful son was collateral damage to the ineptness if our elected officials, I will continue to bring my words to them in whatever platform I can. They owe it to me and every other Angel Family to have a hearing for our voices. Their fellow American citizens and our loved ones killed by their inactions. My voice is my son’s voice, never to be silenced by anyone.”

A Twitter spokesperson did not explain why Mendoza was suspended but only that they were requiring her to delete her posts.

Illegal Immigrants Drive Child Sex Crime Charges in North Carolina

North Carolina data indicates massive hidden problem nationwide

In North Carolina, during the past 18 months, more than 331 illegal aliens have been charged with 1,172 child rapes and child sexual assaults, according to data collected by an independent researcher.

James Johnson, who tracks the data on his website NCFIRE.info (North Carolinians For Immigration Reform and Enforcement), says he is only able to gather data from 30 of the state’s 100 counties, which means it’s likely the statewide count is significantly higher.

Johnson has tracked rapes and sexual assaults on children by illegal aliens since 2013, using original police reports and calling arresting agencies to verify immigration status. His data doesn’t cover every month, but for the 54 months he has recorded, an average of 34 illegal aliens per month were charged with 151 counts of raping or sexually assaulting a child in North Carolina.

Further, a study shows that only 12 percent of child rapes are reported, according to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center—meaning the total number could be almost 10 times higher.

“It’s happening in every state—we just happen to be compiling the information. It’s a mess,” Johnson told The Epoch Times.

“The ones that I cannot confirm as being illegal aliens, I do not put in the reports. So, our reports are obviously on the low side every month because we can’t get around to every county, every arrest report, and we can’t verify every one that we come across.”

He said that in the last six years, he has only had to pull three reports off the site due to receiving incorrect information from the arresting agency.

National Issue

No federal database exists publicly for illegal alien crime against children, so it’s difficult to get a handle on the severity of the issue nationally.

But Texas has almost three times the population of North Carolina, and California has almost four times, according to Census estimates.

If the monthly rate of reported child sexual offenses committed by illegal aliens in North Carolina is estimated to be 113 illegal aliens charged with around 503 child sexual crimes, that would put Texas at roughly 330 illegal aliens charged with 1,500 child sex crimes per month, and California at 450 illegal aliens charged with more than 2,000 crimes against children every month.

Many Cases

The crimes listed on the NCFIRE website range from rape to indecent exposure.

In May, Jeremias Rafael Deleon-Sales was arrested in Hanover County and charged with statutory rape of a 4- to 6-year-old child.

Just last month, in Orange County, Reyes Rivera-Zapata was arrested and charged with first-degree kidnapping, two counts of first-degree statutory sex offense, and two counts of indecent liberties with a child.

Ignacio Cortez Macedo was convicted in Mecklenburg County in April of three counts of forcible sex offense on a 13-year-old girl, among other charges.

A man in Guilford County, Miguel Alberto Guerra-alba, was arrested in April and charged with seven counts of first-degree rape by a guardian.

In January, two illegal aliens were charged with rape of a child under 6 years old; another was charged with 60 felonies, 14 counts of rape with an under-15-year-old and 19 counts of crimes against nature; another man was charged with molesting five girls aged between 4 and 12.

The impact of sexual abuse on children is usually lifelong and profound, according to a research report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.

Sexually abused children often exhibit symptoms including fear, nightmares, post-traumatic stress disorder, withdrawn behavior, neurotic mental illness, cruelty, delinquency, sexually inappropriate behavior, regressive behavior, running away, general problem behaviors, and self-injurious behavior, the report states.

‘A Lot Worse Than What People May Think’

Johnson, a retired electrician, said when he first launched the website, he attempted to record all crimes committed by illegal aliens after he noticed the prevalence.

“It just got to be incredibly difficult and impossible to do. And I wasn’t getting much traction with it as far as our North Carolina legislators were concerned,” he said. “So I started to think, ‘Well, you know what? These child rapes, that’s about as bad as it gets. I can’t think of a worse crime. If this doesn’t get their attention, I don’t know what will.’”

He switched focus in 2013 to sex crimes against children and has spent at least 40 hours a week since on finding and verifying his information.

Every month, Johnson sends out a report to North Carolina legislators and more than 350 media outlets, “and it’s crickets—nothing, nobody.”

Johnson said the problem is a lot worse than what people may think, and he blames the government and media for not highlighting the issue enough.

“If the public knew how much this was actually happening, first of all, they’d be just shocked. And secondly, I think there would be a revolt,” he said.

He said after six years of sifting through arrest records, he has noticed that illegal aliens rape children four times more often than U.S. citizens.

“Just from my observations, this specific crime of child rape, illegal aliens tend to commit child rapes at a rate of four to one, compared to citizens,” Johnson said. He also said more Mexicans are charged with sex crimes against children in North Carolina, which he puts down to there simply being more illegal aliens from Mexico in the state.

“We have a lot of agriculture and farms in North Carolina. And that’s where they initially started coming from,” he said.

Johnson said the goal of documenting the crimes is to put enough pressure on legislators to enforce immigration laws. “Just plain and simply. Immigrants are fine, illegal aliens are not.”

In June, more than 3,100 illegal immigrants were apprehended each day by Border Patrol along the southern border, according to statistics from Customs and Border Protection.

A caravan of around 3,300 individuals that traveled to the U.S.-border from Honduras in January contained at least 860 criminals who had been convicted in the United States, according to ICE data provided to House Oversight and Reform Committee Republican members on May 17.

The individuals’ criminal histories included almost 30 convicted of sexual offenses, 20 convicted of assault or aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, two convicted of violence against law enforcement, and one convicted of attempted murder.

Rep. Mark Walker (R-N.C.) said he’s concerned about all threats to the security of children and families in North Carolina, which is partly why he sits on the House Homeland Security Committee.

“The lawlessness that we are seeing at our border, matched with radical calls to abolish our immigration law enforcement agencies is dangerous and threatens all of our communities,” Walker said via email on July 16. “Congress needs to secure the border and fix our immigration system, while calling out Democrats who are completely and irresponsibly absent from those efforts.”

The remainder of North Carolina’s 11 federal representatives and two senators didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Sanctuaries

Six counties in North Carolina have enacted sanctuary policies, which shield illegal aliens from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), according to the Center for Immigration Studies, which tracks sanctuary jurisdictions nationwide. The counties are Buncombe County, Durham County, Forsyth County, Mecklenburg County, Orange County, and Wake County.

Forsyth County Sheriff Bobby Kimbrough said in February that he won’t honor ICE detainers that request correctional facilities to hold an illegal alien for up to 48 hours longer so ICE can take custody.

Mecklenburg County Sheriff Garry McFadden goes one step further and also refuses to notify ICE when the jail is releasing an inmate with a detainer. He says ICE still has access to the jail database and can find that out for themselves.

So far, during McFadden’s tenure, three illegal aliens have been released from jail despite ICE placing detainers on them, according to a report released by ICE.

A 40-year-old Guatemalan was arrested and charged in October 2018 for multiple counts of indecent liberties with a child, rape, and other sex offenses. He was released from the Mecklenburg County Jail in Charlotte, North Carolina, in March, despite a detainer from ICE being placed soon after his arrest in 2018. ICE has since tracked him down and detained him.

The jail also arrested a 30-year-old Mexican man for child sex crimes in December 2018 and released him in January, despite an ICE detainer being placed.

A third case occurred in May, when the Mecklenburg County Jail ignored another ICE detainer and released a 19-year-old Honduran man charged with indecent liberties with a child. He is still at large.

A bill that is currently moving through the state legislature aims to require all local law enforcement to cooperate with ICE. However, Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper has indicated he will veto the bill, HB370, if it gets to his desk.

 

Brave 10-Year-Old Girl and Boy Suspended After Asking to Be Excused from LGBT Lesson

A 10-year-old girl in Britain is bravely speaking out on video after being suspended from class, accused of making homophobic comments during an LGBT class lesson. Not only is she denying that claim, she says she didn’t even know what that word meant.

Kaysey and a classmate named Farrell, studying at a school in South London, both asked to be excluded from a school lesson that promoted LGBT pride month. 

The teacher, Susan Papas, told the two students that the lesson was part of the curriculum and refusing to participate was not an option, according to the Christian Legal Centre which fights for religious freedom in the UK.  But the two children courageously stood up for their beliefs, despite their young age.

Kaysey and Farrell were told they were being homophobic and were accused of making anti-LGBT comments in class. The teacher even accused them of wanting to kill LGBT people. Both of the young children say they never said that, and they had rejected the statement when the teacher demanded, “Do you want them to die?” 

Kaysey says she did not even know what the word “homophobic” meant until her teacher explained it.

“I was confused when she said that I was being very homophobic. I’m not homophobic I’m just against the point of putting in schools and teaching it to children. I think that they are trying to confuse children. Before all this happened, they were completely confident of who they were but now they’re not,” Kaysey said.

Kaysey, a pentecostal Christian, defends her beliefs in a Christian Concern video and explains that kids are losing self-confidence.

“It’s really affecting the kids. Now they are losing confidence in themselves and thinking, ‘Why am I this person, why couldn’t I be someone else?”

“Teachers are saying that this is doing children good but it’s not. Since this came out and into schools, children are now facing the choice of what gender they are,” Kaysey added.

Despite suspending Kaysey and Farrell for expressing their beliefs, Heavers Farm Primary School displays the value of mutual respect on their website:
“Within our schools we have created safe and supportive environments where children are able to voice opinions and make their own choices.”

More than 23,000 people have signed a petition to support Kaysey and other brave students who are asking to be excused from LGBT class lessons.

R. KELLY ARRESTED ON FEDERAL SEX CRIME CHARGES … Child Porn, Obstruction Of Justice

R. Kelly has been arrested on federal sex crime charges … TMZ has confirmed.

Kelly was arrested Thursday in Chicago on charges contained in a 13-count indictment returned in the Northern District of Illinois. Joseph Fitzpatrick, spokesperson for The U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Northern District, says the indictment includes charges of child porn and obstruction of justice.   

R. Kelly was in court in Chicago in June where he pled not guilty to 11 felonies related to sexual assault and various abuse in Illinois. The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office charged him with 5 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, 4 counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault and 2 counts of criminal sexual assault.

In those legal docs, Kelly is accused of forcing contact between his penis and the alleged victim’s mouth and committing an act of sexual penetration on a victim listed only as “J.P.” The alleged incident occurred in January 2010, when the victim was under the age of 18.
