April 16, 2019

U.S. Rep Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., speaks to support LGBTQ and allied high school students from across the state of Minnesota who marched to the State Capitol steps Thursday, March 21, 2019 in St. Paul, Minn. to urge lawmakers to protect LGBTQ Minnesotans and youth from the effects of so-called conversion “therapy.” (AP Photo/Jim Mone)

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is said to be safe right now as the number of death threats against her is on the rise since the inflammatory tweet by President Trump on Friday. 

The members of the Congressional Black Caucus stand with Rep. Omar as a body, but there are some members in the CBC along with some Democrats on the Hill who are not happy with the Congresswoman’s comments.

Meanwhile, the CBC  says they will do what the can to help protect her from the increased hate and threats. The prevailing thought is Republicans have made incendiary comments but have the First Amendment right to do so, and Congresswoman Omar should be afforded that same right. AURN Washington Bureau Chief April Ryan speaks with CBC Chair Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA).
