This story is heating up. The investigator who discovered many of the facts showing that Ilhan Omar might have married her brother in order to thwart immigration laws just posted another report of his findings.
As a summary for those of us with less time, here’s how Breitbart described the report:
Steinberg claims that Omar is actually one of five siblings in the Elmi family from Somalia. Three of the siblings were granted asylum in the United Kingdom, while two were granted asylum in the United States, including the father, Sternberg alleges.
He further alleges: “The Omar family is a second, unrelated family which was being granted asylum by the United States. The Omars allowed Ilhan, her genetic sister Sahra, and her genetic father Nur Said to use false names to apply for asylum as members of the Omar family.”
Steinberg also alleges that Rep. Omar married her alleged brother, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, in 2009: he had already reportedly been granted asylum in the UK. Following the marriage, he allegedly went on to study at North Dakota State University.
Very very interesting. It’s gotten so bad that even the mainstream media can’t ignore it.
So listen, I’m going to admit that I did not believe the original posts on this from the right-o-sphere. It really appeared like another nutty conspiracy theory pushed by unreliable click-baiters. But now, there are real questions about what Ilhan Omar did, and she’s not answering them.
This is a story worthy of keeping an eye on.
