In a tweet posted on Friday, Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Minnesota Democrat who seems to have a soft spot in her heart for terrorists, said in no uncertain terms that the Department of Homeland Security should receive absolutely no funding whatsoever.
“When Democrats stood our ground last month, we proved that Individual 1 does not have the public support to ram his hateful wall through Congress. Let’s stand firm:
#Not1Dollar for DHS,” she tweeted. “Individual 1” is generally believed to be a reference to President Trump.

To fully understand exactly what Omar is calling for, let’s take a visit to the DHS website, shall we?
The DHS site tells us that its mission is “…to secure the nation from the many threats we face. This requires the dedication of more than 240,000 employees in jobs that range from aviation and border security to emergency response, from cybersecurity analyst to chemical facility inspector. Our duties are wide-ranging, and our goal is clear – keeping America safe.”
In other words, Omar, it seems, opposes the idea of keeping America safe.
But there’s more. The DHS website tells us that it’s responsible for, among other things, the Coast Guard, the Secret Service, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, the Transportation Security Agency (TSA), the Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office, the Customs and Border Protection Agency and ICE.
If Omar were to have her way, all of these agencies would be defunded, making America less safe.
Either Omar truly wants to make America less safe or she’s frankly too stupid to know what she’s talking about.
Reaction on Twitter was pretty much what you’d expect.
Please reexamine your oath of office. If you cannot fulfill it, please resign https://t.co/XDOxz97G2m

Then how will the TSA officers get paid?

They wouldn’t because there would be no TSA if she had her way.
@realDonaldTrump please call for the expulsion of .@Ilhan Two years is too long to wait. Call the House Reps nationwide to file action now. We real Americans are already mobilizing against her illegitimacy. Same with .@RashidaTlaib and @RepAOC Stand up Americans!

You know DHS also includes FEMA and USCIS, right? RIGHT?

There really needs to be some kind of test of SOME knowledge about how our country works before someone can get into congress. Our congress is turning into an immature high school club!

Now there’s an idea we can get behind, since it appears the inmates are running the asylum.
What’s next? The mind boggles.
