Kentucky Senator Rand Paul said that if Rep. Ilhan Omar had to go back to Somalia, she would learn to appreciate America.
Paul suggested that maybe her love of the United States would be increased if she was forced to go back to Somalia and be able to actually compare it to the U.S.
The Kentucky senator made it clear that he’s not saying we “forcibly send her anywhere” but he’s saying that she could certainly use a little perspective after she said America is a terrible country.
“I’ve met people who have come here from behind the Iron Curtain,”Paul said. “They got away from communism, they’re some of the best Americans we have, because they really appreciate how great our country is, and then I hear Representative Omar say America is a terrible place,” Paul said, per Breitbart.
“Well, she came here and we fed her, we clothed her, she got welfare, she got [schooling], she got healthcare, and then, lo and behold, she has the honor of actually winning a seat in Congress, and she says we’re a terrible country? I think that’s about as ungrateful as you can get,” Paul continued.
It’s hard to argue with the case that Rand Paul is making. This country has taken Omar in and given her all of the opportunities in the world to succeed, which is evident with her being a congresswoman.
Despite this, she dumps on our country and calls it terrible. Then there are all of the other issues facing Omar when it comes to the different types of fraud she is being investigated for.
