Being anti-Semitic wasn’t getting enough attention for Representative Ilhan Omar, so in recent weeks she’s shifted her standard operating procedure to go from attacking Israel to playing the constant victim and labeling anyone opposed to her as racist. The latest episode of “How Ilhan played the race card today” happened at the ideal place for such things: the far-left Netroots Nation gathering.
DailyWire’s Ryan Saavedra gave the short version as well as a video of the pertinent parts of her speech:
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) says Americans treat detained illegal aliens worse than dogs because they're racist: “we live in a society and govern in a body that might value the life of a dog more than they value the life of a child who might not look like theirs” pic.twitter.com/Ed2dkLsou8

The biggest flaw of Omar’s argument is causation versus correlation. She claims the illegal immigrants are being put in “cages” because they don’t look like the people putting them there. But even if we set aside the false notion that people of color are all against stopping illegal immigration, they aren’t being detained because of the way they look. They’re being detained because the broke the law and attacked the sovereignty of our nation by stealing entry and claiming an asylum status that is reserved for truly oppressed people, not economically challenged people as most of the migrants are.
If a Caucasian family crossed the border illegally, they would be detained just as quickly and with the same rules applied to them. The fact that most who do so are people of color does not mean they’re being detained because of their race.
Omar and her cronies from the Justice Democrats – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib – have made it a habit to invoke the race card in every circumstance and regarding every policy. Today is just them on repeat.
