Omar: Republicans Believe Black People, Muslims Should Not Have Equal Access to Legal System

Representative Ilhan Omar has claimed she was voted out of the Foreign Affairs Committee because Republicans “believe Muslims or black people should have equal access.”

During an appearance on MSNBC’s “All In,” Co-host Mehdi Hasan asked, “How much do you think the targeting of you last week had to do with your identity? And how much to do with your view, specifically, your criticisms of Israel, that Speaker McCarthy openly singled out?”

Omar said, “It precisely has to do with bigotry. If you remember, Marjorie Taylor Greene, herself, in 2019, came to Congress and said she was going to force Rashida Tlaib and I to get sworn in on the Bible because we could not be official unless we did so.”

“She talked about how we were infiltrating Congress as Muslims.”

“You remember Donald Trump coming to Minnesota and saying Somalis were infiltrating your state,” Omar added.

“These are people who certainly don’t believe Muslim immigrants, immigrants, refugees, and certainly someone who carries all of those identities together should be in the United States, let alone and Congress, and wield any kind of power,” she said.

She continued:

“But it’s also something deeper, right? It is this bigoted idea that having access to the legal system to seek justice.”

“They don’t believe Muslims or black people should have equal access here in the United States to our legal system.”

Omar added:

“I have brought about these concerns and that committee. I have spoken about the injustices that are out there, that are being done in our name with our tax dollars, and why is it important to have a voice on that committee to be asking those kinds of questions.”

Last week, Omar argued the debate about ousting her centers on “who gets to be an American, what opinions do we have to have to be counted as Americans.”

“There is this idea that you are suspect if you are an immigrant, or if you are from certain parts of the world, or a certain skin tone, or a Muslim,” said Omar.

Rep. Mike Lawler (R-NY) said that ousting Omar is not “about vengeance or retribution. It is about accountability.”

“No one who peddles in antisemitic activity, behavior, or language should have any right to serve on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, which has an incredibly important role to play in partnering with our strongest ally, the state of Israel,” Lawler added.
