MUST-SEE: Infamous ‘Squad’ Member Omar Faces Hard Questions About Rising Crime Back Home

(Congressional Agenda) – Minnesota Democratic Rep. Illhan Omar, who is one of the members of the infamous ‘Squad,’ seems to be ignoring some rather tough questions about the spike in crime in the city of Minneapolis, even as residents are making calls for additional police forces in order to deal with the crisis.

Local news reports in the city are putting out reports discussing how violent crime is on the rise in the city.

According to Just the News, an analysis from the Star Tribune has discovered that “violent crime rates have been rising in the last couple of years in more than a dozen suburbs.”

Then, in a separate article published by the Star Tribune, it was reported that “downtown Minneapolis residents want to hire police to curb crime” in their neighborhoods.

Back in 2021, murders in the downtown area of the city were close to double the average Minneapolis experienced between 2015-2019. The amount of aggravated assaults also went up significantly from 454 from an average of around 351 before the pandemic hit.

“Omar, whose district covers parts of Minneapolis, was asked for her response to the surge in violent crime and if she wants to see the police budget increased. Omar did not respond,” Just The News reported.

Typical leftist response, right?

The consequences of their policies finally hit, the regular people suffer for it, then when they attempt to hold their elected officials accountable for their actions, they stick their fingers in their ears and pretend like none of it is happening.

“Following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May 2020, Omar had called for the Minneapolis Police Department to be dismantled,” the report continued.

“The Minneapolis Police Department has proven themselves beyond reform. It’s time to disband them and reimagine public safety in Minneapolis,” Omar stated in a post on Twitter back in June 2020.

So the question everyone is probably thinking about is whether or not Omar will actually do her job and put the concerns of her constituents before the leftist agenda she’s been so diligent in pushing ever since she first stepped foot in Congress?

I think it’s a pretty safe bet that the answer to that is a resounding “no.” It was Omar, along with her fellow Squad members and plenty of other Democrats who decided that getting rid of police and slashing funding for law enforcement was an appropriate response to the George Floyd incident.

Obviously, the facts say otherwise. But since when has the left ever cared about facts?
