So interesting to see Progressive Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......
Omar can go to hell. Even better.
I totally agree and it they don't want to go back to their sh*thole countries, They can All go Straight to Hell!
There is nothing wrong with it it highlights perfectly the Open rebellion and demonization of our country by those who now profess to “serve it”. McCarthy was vilified he was not wrong just a voice crying in the wilderness in HIS time.
President Donald Trump is a voice crying in the wilderness I hope we have the balls to listen!...and to act.
The media keep repeating go back, but never tell their viewers what he said after like then fix the country and then come back here to show us.

Somalia, Omar’s homeland, is known for its vast corruption. Somalia ranks among the worlds most corrupt countries. Insecurity is also a major issue; the ongoing instability greatly restricts business. Corrupt government officials tolerate illegal activities in return for bribes. Dysfunctional institutions facilitate an environment of lawlessness, and the absence of any form of regulatory framework hinders prospects of economic competitiveness. Business is based on patronage networks, and tight monopolies dominate the market. Somalias Provisional Constitution criminalizes several forms of corruption (including abuse of office, embezzlement and bribery); however, implementation is non-existent. The governing elite is continuously involved in allegations of embezzlement of public funds from the already meager Somalian coffers. Finally, bribery is commonplace in all sectors, and procurement contracts frequently involve corruption.
Judicial System Businesses face a high corruption risk when dealing with the courts. The institution is subject to political interference and suffers from high levels of corruption, rendering it ineffective (HRR 2015; FitW 2015). Civil courts in Somalia are practically nonfunctional; a combination of traditional and customary, sharia and formal law guide the institution and in some local courts depend on dominant local clans for establishing authority (BTI 2016). Court orders are not respected by Somalian authorities (HRR 2015).
Police Corruption is rife within the security apparatus. Impunity is widespread, and authorities do not maintain effective control over the police force (HRR 2015). In addition, the police are ineffective (HRR 2015). To stay protected from crime, companies in Somalia are forced either to cooperate with violent groups or to arm themselves against threats (BTI 2016).
The Somali National Army is the countrys most important security institution. It suffers rampant corruption: Army leaders have systematically inflated troop numbers to obtain greater funding. Furthermore, family and business ties link officials responsible for provisions and the companies contracted to provide the food rations (worth USD 8 million per year) (UN Security Council, Oct. 2015). Cases of corruption and misappropriation within the army led President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud to order the replacement of the chief of the armed forces in 2015 (UN Security Council, Oct. 2015).
Public Services In 1991, Somalias state institutions witnessed a complete collapse, and efforts to rebuild the countrys public administrations since have been modest due to ongoing armed conflict and rampant corruption (BTI 2016). There are no legal or institutional frameworks regulating the market in Somalia, thus market competition is absent and the economy is controlled by patronage networks with close ties to the ruling elite (BTI 2016).
Land Administration Somali authorities are incapable of protecting property rights (BTI 2016). The construction boom the country is currently witnessing has further fueled conflict as title deeds are either unavailable or forged (BTI 2016). Forced evictions by both private and public actors, coupled with the absence of land deeds and corruption, will most likely further exacerbate land conflict in the future (BTI 2016). The country has no functioning land registry (BTI 2016).
Tax Administration The tax administration is absent in Somalia, and most businesses operate in the informal sector and thus go untaxed (BTI 2016). The government lacks the capacity both to collect taxes and to control the countrys territory, parts of which are under the rule of rebel groups (BTI 2016). This has allowed rebel leaders and warlords to establish their unique tax collection system from traders and businessmen operating in areas under their control (BTI 2016).
Customs Administration Businesses are likely to face extensive corruption in the customs sector. Bribery is common when clearing goods through the Mogadishu port (Hiiran Online, Jan. 2015). Generally, the diversion of revenue from ports is very common; for instance, revenue from the Mogadishu port totaled more than USD 5.5 million per month during 2013 (to put this in perspective, the Somali central bank in 2014 received an average of USD 4.6 million per month) (HRR 2014).
Trade in counterfeit goods is widespread at Somalias borders and has also served as a source of financing for armed rebels such as Al-Shabab (BTI 2016).
Public Procurement Public procurement in Somalia holds high corruption risks for business. The majority of public tenders are treated as confidential (BTI 2016). Secret contracting, where officials close public procurement deals in complete absence of transparency and oversight, is a common practice (HRR 2015). Reportedly, some regional entities have closed contracts with oil companies independently from the government (BTI 2016).
Public funds are found to be frequently diverted and misappropriated due to corruption (HRR 2015). In one major case, it was found that approximately 80% of payment transfers made by the central bank of Somalia was to private persons for non-business purposes (BTI 2016; HRR 2015). Government officials with close ties to the president also actively used the central bank to control overseas recovered assets including cash and gold held in banks during the Somalian civil war as well as government property abroad (HRR 2015, HRR 2014). The banks governor resigned after details of the case were revealed in 2013. His predecessor, appointed by the President, also resigned weeks later due to heavy political interference and corruption (BTI 2016). The case has triggered the government to set up a Financial Governance Committee to restore the trust of international donors. The committee is responsible for controlling corruption and securing transparency in the handling of public assets; however, only a small proportion of government contracts are shared with the committee (BTI 2016).
Natural Resources The natural resources industries are jeopardized by corruption and insecurity. The sector is almost completely unregulated; the petroleum industry is particularly problematic (UN Security Council, Oct. 2015). Several members of the political elite have signed extra

What is most interesting here is the LACK OF criticism from Repubs, anti-Trumpers and GOP-e types.
Bush type folks are often louder than democrats in blasting Trump.
Not this time. They know (we all know) President Trump was right on in his “Go Home” remarks.
The only thing the press could sputter was "White nationalists support your tweets and that means your racist!"
Trump should deport her. She is a disgusting illegal.
One the best tweets ever. Go Trump!
Interestingly, in the period since, Trump has every Democrat and all of the DNC/Media complex vociferously defending a politician that has 9% favorability.
The Dems already were concerned that Cortez and her Marxist buddies were becoming the face of the party. The Dems and the MSM just took the bait hook, line and sinker.
Democrats can call us “Hitler”, deplorable, irredeemable ,racists, xenophobes etc - the worst words they can come up with...
But if we dare to say anything about them... or their attitudes they freak out. HOW dare we say anything bad about THEM - the EFFING ELITES... How dare we not worship at their feet.
Let them pick a country and just walk right in, be welcomed and access the social benefits. Its like that everywhere else besides the USA, right?
Their native countries do not need the “help” of leftist politicians.
My popcorn reserves are getting low...... who could have anticipated so much winning. MAGA
Pelosi should buy and use a one-way plane to San Francisco (or Oakland or San Jose) and retire to a Bay Area assisted living facility.
Sandy from the bar (aka Juan(ita) Epstein?) should go back to Puerto Rico. AFA the mohamedan immigrants? All I can say is that both a village in Somalia and a village in Palestine is missing their idiot.
Not only nothing wrong, absolutely right and refreshing to read.
Actually, this is a brilliant move by Trump - now Pelosi needs to step in to defend the Squad who are busy attacking Democrats and really everyone that in non-radical.
