Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) demanded this week that the United States bring in the United Nations to handle the border crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, a move that would undermine the United States’ national sovereignty.
Omar made the remarks on Tuesday while speaking to her constituents during an immigration forum in south Minneapolis.
“We should do what any other country does by dealing with this situation in a serious way,” Omar said. “So, we have to bring in the United Nations high commissioner on refugees, an agency that has the expertise and the training to handle massive flows of refugees humanely.”

This is not Omar’s first time making calls for radical moves that would make the United States weaker.
In February, Omar called for the elimination of the entire Department of Homeland Security (DHS) which is the national security apparatus that is largely responsible for protecting the United States. DHS was created after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which resulted in the deaths of thousands of Americans.
“When Democrats stood our ground last month, we proved that Individual 1 does not have the public support to ram his hateful wall through Congress,” Omar tweeted. “Let’s stand firm: #Not1Dollar for DHS.”

Last month, socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) joined Omar and called for the eliminating DHS.
“ICE is not under DOJ, it’s under the Department of Homeland Security and so we have now —” Ocasio-Cortez said in an interview.
“Would you get rid of Homeland Security too?” Ocasio-Cortez was asked.
“I think so,” Ocasio-Cortez responded. “I think so.”
