Today, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced a resolution to censure Ilhan Omar of Minnesota for her recent treasonous statements. The resolution, which highlights Omar's violation of her oath of allegiance to the United States, condemns her actions as detrimental to national security and against the principles of patriotism.
In her remarks at an event in Minneapolis on January 27, 2024, Omar openly admitted to advocating for the interests of Somalia over those of the United States. She stated, "The U.S. Government will only do what Somalians in the U.S. tell them to do... Sleep in comfort knowing I am here to protect the interests of Somalia from inside the U.S. system."
The resolution emphasizes that Omar's actions directly contradict the oath of allegiance she took upon becoming a citizen of the United States. Furthermore, it underscores the warnings of George Washington against the dangers of "pretended patriotism" and emphasizes the importance of loyalty to the United States above all else.
"Ilhan Omar needs to be censured. I urge my colleagues to vote to censure her, but also urge my colleagues that we need to join together to stop foreign agents serving in our government, in the interests of foreign countries,” stated Congresswoman Greene. “We serve the United States of America, and that's it. We serve the American people and no other people. That's how our country needs to get back on track. And that's the only way we'll save our country."
If passed, the resolution calls for the censure of Ilhan Omar and her public appearance in the House of Representatives for the pronouncement of censure. Additionally, after being removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee at the beginning of the 118th Congress, this resolution goes further by stripping Omar of her remaining committee assignments by removing her from the Committee on the Budget and the Committee on Education and the Workforce.
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene urges all Members of Congress to uphold their oath to protect and defend the United States Constitution by supporting this resolution.
