116th CONGRESS
1st Session

        H. RES. XXX


Urging the immediate removal of Representative Ilhan Omar from Minnesota from the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the revocation of her security clearance.


IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
[         ], 2019


RESOLUTION
Urging the immediate removal of Representative Ilhan Omar from Minnesota from the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the revocation of her security clearance.

Whereas Representative Omar has, both before and during her brief time in Congress, repeatedly cast aspersions on American citizens of Jewish descent and has engaged in vile anti-Semitic tropes;

Whereas Representative Omar has cavalierly treated the worst terrorist attack in American history as a joking matter of little consequence;

Whereas Representative Omar has openly declared contempt for America’s military, most notoriously in a recently surfaced tweet from 2017 in which she falsely claimed in an inflammatory manner that U.S. soldiers sent to her home country on a humanitarian mission caused the deaths of “thousands of Somalis”;

Whereas Representative Omar’s behavior reflects negatively on the House of Representatives, her own hard-working constituents in Minnesota’s Somali-American community, and on America as a whole;

Whereas Representative Omar’s behavior demonstrates that she is singularly unfit to hold a sensitive position with access to the nation’s secrets, and with influence over America’s movements on the world stage:

Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the House of Representatives—
(1) Reaffirms its responsibility for ensuring that all its Members act in a manner consistent with the well-being and safety of the American people, including the brave men and women of our Armed Forces who, at risk of life and limb, undertake the paramount duty of guarding the nation’s security.
(2) Urges the immediate removal of Representative Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee;
(3) Urges the immediate revocation of Representative Omar’s security clearance.
