At the Netroots Nation conference over the weekend, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) claimed she arguably loves the United States more than American-born citizens.

Later in the evening, the freshman representative blamed American foreign policy for today's border crisis – but that's not all – in an interview with Al Sharpton. 

Per the Washington Free Beacon:

Omar, who has a history of making anti-Semitic remarks, appeared on MSNBC's PoliticsNation with Al Sharpton, who also has his own history of being anti-Semitic.  Sharpton led a violent 1991 riot in Crown Heights, a Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn, which resulted in 183 people being injured and Australian University academic Yankel Rosenbaum being murdered. Sharpton also negatively referred to Jews as "diamond dealers."

Sharpton asked Omar about the Democratic feud between Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) and "the squad," which includes Omar and three other freshman House Democrats who have been outspoken about their opposition to the immigration crisis at the border and have called for ICE to be abolished.

"Everybody wants to make this personal. This isn't personal for me. You know, I understand my role. My colleagues understand their role. We're there to take the tough votes to make sure that our values are intact in the policies that we push for. We have a responsibility to take a vote on behalf of the constituents that send us to Washington and leadership has a responsibility to make sure they wrangle the members of Congress to push forth the policies that they're putting forth, so everybody has a role. Everybody has a lane."

Later in the interview, Omar reiterated her criticism of U.S. foreign policy.

"This is what this administration and its ideology has produced. Also, generations of not attending to a foreign policy that is just in regards to Northern Triangle has created this mass migration that we are dealing with today," Omar said.

The Northern Triangle refers to the Central American countries of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. The region has the highest homicide rate in the world, driving migrants north.
