Ilhan Omar is "living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country"
A Congresswoman from Minnesota was subjected to racist attacks by Tucker Carlson. In his evening show, the host called Ilhan Omar "a living fire alarm. A warning to the rest of us that we better change our immigration. Or else."

The first Muslim woman to be elected to Congress instantly retorted this offensive and racist speech from the Fox News host.
Not gonna lie, it’s kinda fun watching a racist fool like this weeping about my presence in Congress ????????— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) July 10, 2019
No lies will stamp out my love for this country or my resolve to make our union more perfect.
They will just have to get used to calling me Congresswoman! https://t.co/nRS13yWivK
Advocacy group Sleeping Giants also reacted critically on Twitter, bring an accusation of the sponsorship of white supremacy.
Even for Tucker Carlson, this is outrageously racist.— Sleeping Giants (@slpng_giants) July 10, 2019
Advertisers need to wake up.
By financially supporting this show and the people who rubber stamp these messages, you are sponsoring white supremacy. Full stop. https://t.co/I3Q9BYcPYo
