Alleged fraud used by Omar to get into US was stopped after she got here
Mass Fraud by African Refugees Halted Inflow After Ilhan Omar Came to U.S.For some reason, the mainstream media has not addressed this issue with regard to Omar. It is as if they do not want to know.
A refugee program that allowed foreign relatives of already-arrived foreign refugees to the United States was halted, altogether, more than a decade ago due to mass fraud among applicants.
This week, Powerline blog’s David Steinberg suggested that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) entered the U.S. in the mid-1990s as a third-priority, known as P-3, refugee — that is, a refugee who is admitted to the country due to their ties to an already-resettled refugee.
Steinberg’s report also claims that Omar committed immigration fraud when she falsely entered the country as a member of the “Omar” family that had already resettled in the U.S.
In 2008, after thousands of foreign nationals had entered as P-3 refugees, the program was halted by the *Bush administration* due to mass fraud wherein the State Department, through DNA testing, was able to confirm family relations between the program’s applicants in less than 20 percent of cases.
Overall, about 87 percent of P-3 refugees’ family relation claims turned out to be fraudulent.
