Somalia community leader: Ilhan Omar married her brother and said she would ‘do what she had to do to get him “papers” to keep him in U.S.’

From Daily Mail: ‘Squad’ congresswoman Ilhan Omar told friends years ago that the man who went on to become her second husband was in fact her brother, DailyMail.com can confirm.

And now for the first time one of those friends has come forward to reveal exactly how Omar and Ahmed Elmi scandalized the Somali community in Minneapolis.

Abdihakim Osman is the first person to go on record to speak of how Omar said she wanted to get her brother papers so he could stay in the United States, at a time when she was married to her first husband Ahmed Hirsi.

But hardly anyone realized that meant marrying him.

Osman’s revelations are sure to renew calls for an investigation into the Minnesota freshman representative who has repeatedly refused to answer questions on her marriage to Elmi.

She originally said the idea that the spouses were also siblings were ‘baseless, absurd rumors’, accusing journalists of Islamophobia, but has since stayed quiet.

Her spokesman told DailyMail.com that Omar, 37, does not comment on her family or personal life. ‘The Congresswoman is focused on the work her constituents sent her to Washington to accomplish,’ he said.

Omar married her first husband Hirsi in 2002 in a Muslim ceremony that, like many in the immigrant community, was not registered with the state. Their first child Isra was born the following year and a second followed.

But in the late 2000s Elmi appeared in Minneapolis, said Osman, who referred to Hirsi by his nickname ‘Southside’ throughout the interview. ‘People began noticing that Ilhan and Southside (Hirsi) were often with a very effeminate young guy,’ Osman said, who spoke in Somali through an interpreter.

‘He was very feminine in the way he dressed — he would wear light lipstick and pink clothes and very, very, short shorts in the summer. People started whispering about him. ‘[Hirsi] and Ilhan both told me it was Ilhan’s brother and he had been living in London but he was mixing with what were seen as bad influences that the family did not like. So they sent him to Minneapolis as ”rehab”.’

Osman, who runs a popular Facebook blog called Xerta Shekh, which comments on Somali issues, said that Omar kept her marriage to Elmi quiet, with no one from the Somali community invited to the wedding. He explained: ‘When [Hirsi] and Ilhan got married, a lot of people were invited. It was a big Islamic wedding uniting two large clans in the Minneapolis community. ‘I would say there were 100-150 people there.’

But, he said: ‘When she married Elmi, no one even knew about it.’

Osman said at the time Hirsi was better known than Omar among Somalis. ‘He was a footballer, he promoted a lot of Somali shows, he was very popular. ‘So the scandal was about [Hirsi’s] brother-in-law more than Ilhan’s brother.’

It has long been rumored that Omar and Elmi are brother and sister. But because of a lack of paperwork in war-torn Somalia where they were both born, positive proof of their relationship has never been uncovered.

Because she has the trifecta in the victim/oppression sweepstakes: she’s a Muslim woman of color.

Being arrested is too lenient. I would rather dress her in a pair of shorts and a bikini top, rip the rag off her head, then plop her down on the main street in whatever slum passes for a capital city in Somalia. She wouldn’t make it three steps before her Muslim countrymen would be all over her.

Even sans the cartel there is no reason we would want them here. My former home of Lewiston Maine is completely overrun with Somalis. They contribute nothing, collectively their IQ is among the lowest of low IQ populations in Africa. Lewiston is a French-Canadian Catholic mill town and utterly incompatible with Muslim mud culture. They have ruined it. I don’t hate Somalis, I don’t hate anyone. But I hate the fact that they are here. They don’t belong here, they belong in Somalia. That’s why they are called Somalis

You know Omar Elmi (her real name is not Ilhan, her parents lied to get in illegally) is a criminal when her own Somali community is reporting her incest marriage for what it is (she is of such low character this wouldn’t suprise me, that she consummated the sham marriage to her brother 😳) I will be jumping for joy over this one when she is deported / with her entire criminal family🙌🏻

Totally agree, but despair of her deserved deportation ever happening, esp. when we can’t easily, if ever, deport illegals who’ve been released from prisons after convictions for major crimes, including rape, child molestation, murder, vehicular manslaughter, Etc. Seems to me Omar could walk around w/sandwich board boasting of her myriad illegal acts & she’d still be “untouchable.” Lacking any other way “out” of being deported due to illegal transgression, all she would have to do is park herself in a sanctuary state for the rest of her life: so many to choose from & hardly a “hardship” to her or… Read more »

Omar has committed enough punishable offenses to warrant deportation as have almost all illegal immigrants, who are by definition criminals. What’s lacking is the willingness to enforce the law, or rather the prevailing willingness to not enforce it. The architects of immigration policy have as their objective the displacement and eventual eradication of white Christians of European descent. Once we get to minority status, and we don’t have far to go, it’s only a matter of time. Most Americans don’t have a sense of urgency about it because it’s not going to happen today or tomorrow. But by the time… Read more »

In the 35 yrs I’ve lived in Mexifornia, “we” (meaning, avg. American/CA legal/official tax-paying citizen of any ethnic derivation) have devolved from a slight, but steady majority, to today’s MINORITY by numbers. Today in Mexifornia, for instance, OVER 50% of our population is supported financially by the the other 48-49%. AND…..none of us know if this figure is even more uneven when factoring in the benefits paid to illegals in our State for support services/education/health interventions & care, etc.

Agreed. But what about the other illegal alien family that used to squat in the White House? When does that scion of Kenya get its walking papers?

DNA, PEOPLE! It can be proven if they are related, even how closely. This needs only to be ordered by a court. Why is OUR government undermining OUR rights? This whore is a festering pus sac on the body politic. It should be excised and sent back to the schithole whence it came.

I’m sure they hide behind, “Using DNA to convict me is a violation of MY human rights!!!
