According to Steinberg there is credible evidence that Ilhan Omar and her family changed their name to illegally enter the United States back in
And since that time Ilhan Omar as an adult continued to defy US law. According to Steinberg Rep. Omar committed at least eight instances of perjury going back to 2009. The charges could carry up to 40 years of prison time or deportation.
As The Gateway Pundit posted earlier this week Omar’s father, Nur Omar Mohamed (aka Nur Said Elmi Mohamed), is connected to the former brutal dictator in Somalia, Said Barre. Nur and other former Barre accomplices are living in the US illegally. Nur Said Elmi Mohamed fled to the US with two daughters and changed his last name to Omar to sneak into the country under a different name.
The Nur family was well connected in the country led by the Marxist regime. Young Omar went to kindergarten at age four, their family lived in a secure compound in Mogadishu. When the regime was overtaken, the family caught a plane to escape the country. The average GDP per capita in Somalia was only$187 dollarsin 2010 twenty years after they fled the country when the regime fell. Obviously, Nur’s family was a privileged family.
Nur escaped Somalia after the fall of Barre. Because he was no longer safe there and would have been put on trial and shot if caught, he exited the country. He ended up in the US and both hid the fact that they worked for a totalitarian regime. He lied on theirForm N-400, Application for Naturalizationabout their communist background and about his real name.
Ilhan Omar still holds much allegiance to Somalia. She endorsed the current president in his campaign and she has traveled there to meet with political figures.
A video was recently unearthed where she tells supporters they can have an impact here or even in “our nation back home.”
