    Immigration Debate: Miscasting an Argument About Gratitude | National Review

    As for Ilhan Omar — a woman who was saved by America, accepted as a citizen, and then elected to Congress, but who remains disappointed by America on a scale that does not comport with the opportunities she has been afforded — well, I have broadly the same problem with her as I do with Beto O’Rourke. As I argued in my response to David, I think that immigrants of all stripes have a certain duty to look for the good in the places that taken them in or saved their lives.

    And, across the board, I see Omar as doing precisely the opposite.

    It is telling that, in the Washington Post profile of Omar, the very first anecdote on offer shows her telling a story about “American racism, cruelty and injustice” that is flatly untrue, and that, in fact, seems to have been cribbed from Les Miserables — a book about early nineteenth century France. Her rhetoric tends that way in general; on economics, on foreign policy, on Israel, on immigration, on our constitutional order. And she’s wrong.

    Thank you for a civilized response to this.
    It doesn't matter whether I agree with that person or not, someone who can still communicate without blood dripping from their mouths is getting an A+ from me today.

    I wonder if she was grateful before the university professors got a hold of her....how many of your own children came out of college angry at America?....if we don't clean house in our schools this will fester.....

    That guy Charles Cooke is a total moron. After Parkland, that numbskull said that there is NO difference between getting shot with an AR-15 and a 9mm pistol.
