Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is issuing new coronavirus orders in her state, despite the backlash from her previous lockdown orders.

The new order is going into effect on April 26. It demands that children aged 2 to 4 years old wear face masks in social gatherings, according to a report in the Michigan Capitol Confidential.

A gathering is defined in the order as two or more people from different households.

“‘Gathering’ means any occurrence, either indoor or outdoor, where two or more persons from more than one household are present in a shared space,” the order reads.

The order targets child care and summer camps. The establishments will be required to mandate that young children be masked.

“A good faith effort is made to ensure that children aged 2 to 4 years wear a mask when participating in gatherings,” an official told the publication.

The order lists a few categories of those exempt from the mandate, including those fortunate enough to be under the age of two.

Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar was voted off the House Foreign Affairs Committee Thursday. The action was expected, as Republican members of Congress had criticized Omar’s antisemetic and anti-American rhetoric.

After intense debating on the House floor, the resolution passed with a 218-211 vote. Democrats attempted to pull the race card, accusing Republican House members of racism for removing Omar from the committee.

Omar also accused House Republicans of racism, saying, “I am Muslim, I am an immigrant, and interestingly, from Africa…Is anyone surprised that I am being targeted? Is anyone surprised that I am somehow deemed unworthy to speak about American foreign policy, or that they see me as a powerful voice that needs to be silenced?”

“There is this idea that you are a suspect if you are an immigrant or if you are from certain parts of the world or certain skin tone or a muslim.” Omar said during the heated debate. A fiery Alexandria Ocasia Cortez also chimed in shouting, “This is an attack on women of color!”

Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, from New York, said she had personally witnessed Omar spew anti-American rhetoric. Malliotakis said, “I have been in that committee room where, the representative, equates Israel and the United States to Hamas and the Taliban. Absolutely unacceptable for a member of that committee.”

A four-page resolution was written for the justification of removing Omar from the house Foreign Affairs Committee. The resolution states that in 2019, Omar suggested that Jewish people were buying U.S. political support when she posted on Twitter, “it’s all about the Benjamins, baby.”

Omar also commented on the September 11th attacks saying, “some people did something.” This type of comment is unacceptable for any representative who is sitting on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, lawmakers said.

In the resolution it states that members of this committee should all be held to an “equal standard of conduct due to the international sensitivities and national security concerns under the jurisdiction of this committee.”
