Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) advocated or more Afghan refugees, claiming the Republican party won’t because they’re worried the refugees “will outshine them.” The Somali refugee turned lawmaker appeared on MSNBC Tuesday.
“I know what some of these people are worried about,” Omar said of the GOP. “It’s that they’re worried that refugees like myself, when they come to this country, will outshine them. But that is just their own failure and their inability to find success in the ways in which refugees have found success in this country.”
However, Omar said she will continue to advocate for more Afghan refugees. “We are going to keep our commitment. We’re going to keep our promise, and we’re going to keep pushing the administration and other countries to do their part,” Omar told host Joy Ann Reid. “The Afghani people deserve not just our empathy, but they need our partnership and our allyship to make sure that their lives are safe and prosperous.”
Meanwhile, women and children have fallen in the hands of the Taliban. In a statement she said she respects the women who choose to stay. But, Omar said “we have an obligation to them too.”

Former Marine on Afghanistan: ‘Biden lied…Americans still there that want to get out’
Former Force Recon Marine Chad Robichaux says bluntly of the Afghanistan withdrawal: “Biden lied.” Author of “Saving Aziz” Robichaux told “Just the News, No Noise” TV show that President Joe Biden was completely dishonest with the American public when he said, among other things, that Americans were able to evacuate after the botched Afghanistan withdrawal.
“There’s Americans still there that want to get out” he said. “There’s 75,000 Afghan allies who are vulnerable to be being beaten and interrogated for what they know about America and some are executed for serving America.”
“Last week the Taliban announced that women are no longer allowed to see male doctors,” Robichaux said. “But women aren’t allowed to be doctors, nor are women allowed to be educated. So there’s no women’s health care in Afghanistan right now.”
During the withdrawal, Americans were simply thwarted from evacuating. “The State Department controlled only the airport, which meant that the Taliban controlled the outer perimeter of who got in and out of the airport,” Robichaux explained.
“The Taliban is out there checking people’s IDs, beating people, taking their passports away, and killing people in the streets,” he continued. “If you are an American and wanting to go to the airport, you have to go through a Taliban checkpoint.”
In his book, “Saving Aziz,” Robichaux goes into detail about the tragic ordeal and how he and a team of other service members came together to save the lives of some of the people trying to avoid becoming victims of the Taliban.
