Here's what Tucker Carlson said about Ilhan Omar about his Fox News show.
The Democratic candidates for the president are on the road this week to tell voters that the United States is a horrible country.
America & # 39; s institutions are built on white supremacy, Beto O & Rourke squeaked yesterday during an event.
Of all the lies that these people have to tell, and there are many, this is the most absurd.
In fact, the United States is the friendliest, most open-minded place on earth.
The US has done more for other people and received less in return for it than any other country in history.
Americans are happy to help. It makes us feel good.
Part of our deepest satisfaction as a country comes from watching poverty-stricken immigrants who arrive on our shores, accept our values and do well.
We call it the American dream and nothing makes us more proud.
It was in this spirit that in 1992 the United States welcomed 10-year-old Ilhan Omar and her family.
Omar was born in Somalia, one of the world's poorest countries, then ruled by a Marxist military dictatorship.
When she was six, she and her parents and brothers and sisters fled a deteriorating civil war and ended up in a refugee camp in Kenya.
They spent four years until America offered the family home here and settled in Minneapolis.
Omar's father drove a taxi and then got a job at the post office for the government.
Omar has meanwhile grown up freely in & # 39; the world's richest country with all the bounty that entails.
She became a citizen and went to work for the state university.
A few years later she became a member of Congress, elected by voters who were proud to see an immigrant succeed.
Omar is now, at the age of only 36, one of the most powerful women in America.
It is really a great story. Only in this country could it have happened.
Ilhan Omar has a lot to be thankful for. But she is not grateful, not at all.
After all that America has done for Omar and her family, she hates this country more than ever.
In a recent article in The Washington Post, the reporter said it like this: & In the version of Omar, America is not the biggest country that has saved her from a ruthless war and a bleak refugee camp. It was not a meritocracy that helped her go to college and throw her to Congress.
& # 39; Instead, the country had failed to live up to its original ideals, a place that disappointed her, and as many immigrants, refugees, and minorities as she did. & # 39;
In any case, that is an understatement. Omar is not disappointed in America. She is furious with it.
Almost every public statement she accuses Americans of intolerance and racism. This is an immoral country, she says.
She has disdain for the United States and her people.
That should worry you and not just because Omar is a sitting member of Congress.
Ilhan Omar is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous for this country.
A system designed to strengthen America undermines it instead.
Some people we try to help the hardest have started to hate us passionately.
Maybe that is our fault for not asking our immigrants enough. We are not confident enough to make them assimilate so that they never feel completely American.
Or maybe the problem is deeper than that. We may import people from places whose values are simply at odds with ours.
Who knows what the problem is.
But there is a problem and whatever the cause, this cannot continue. It is not sustainable.
No country can import large numbers of people who hate it and expect to survive. The Romans were the last to try with predictable results.
So be thankful for Ilhan Omar, annoying as she is. She's a living fire alarm, one warning for the rest of us: we should change our immigration system immediately – or else.
