As previously reported, the Trump administration has created a denaturalization task force. In that vein, the Department of Justice has reportedly assigned an FBI special agent to work with Immigration and Customs and Enforcement and the Department of Education Inspector General Charge to investigate Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for alleged criminal violations relating to perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, state and federal tax fraud, federal student loan fraud, and bigamy. A director of the American Immigration Board of Governors thinks that she needs an immigration attorney.
Omar was born in Mogadishu, Somalia. Her family fled Somalia to escape the war and spent four years in a refugee camp in Kenya. After first arriving in New York in 1992, Omar's family secured asylum in the U.S. in 1995 and lived for a time in Arlington, Virginia, before moving to and settling in Minneapolis. Omar became a U.S. citizen in 2000.
