MTG Aims To Force Vote On Censuring Ilhan Omar For Remarks On Somalia

via Forbes Breaking News

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has proposed a censure vote against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) over remarks about Somalia.

Greene’s resolution aims to censure and remove Omar from committees based on her comments about U.S. support for Somalia.

The controversy centers on the translation of Omar’s speech to Somali supporters, with differing interpretations of her statements.

Omar reportedly said, “The U.S. Government will only do what Somalians in the U.S. tell them to do. They will do what we want and nothing else. They must follow our orders and that is how we will safeguard the interest of Somalia.”

“For as long as I am in the U.S. Congress, Somalia will never be in danger, its waters will not be stolen by Ethiopia or others. Sleep in comfort knowing I am here to protect the interests of Somalia from inside the U.S. system,” Omar reportedly continued.

According to the translation, Omar reportedly said, “As long as I am in the U.S. Congress, no one will take a way in the Somali sea or water.”

“And I will not support the U.S. government in supporting other people to rob us. Rest assured that it will not happen, Minnesota. The lady that you sent to Congress knows about you, and she feels your interest like you all do,” she continued.

The resolution has sparked a debate, with Omar dismissing the translation and emphasizing her commitment to protecting Somalia’s interests.

Omar said about Greene, “I have nothing to say about the insanity of that woman.”

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries called it a “frivolous censure resolution, designed to inflame and castigate and further divide us.”

This move is part of a series of recent censure actions in the House.
