Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has done nothing but degrade and attack the United States from the day she got into politics.
But now there is good news for her. She may not have to stay in this nation that she despises for much longer.
The representative, who is a member of the far-left progressive “Squad” could find herself deported back to her native Somalia now that the FBI is involved.
The FBI is investigating several claims that say that Omar married her brother as a way to circumvent U.S immigration laws and gain entry illegally, the New York Post reported.
The FBI met with someone in Minnesota in October who handed them a plethora of documents about the marriage of Omar and the man alleged to be her brother, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.
The agents talked to the source about the rumors that Omar married the man in order to obtain a green card and get around immigration laws.
If they find that she did commit marriage fraud she could face a whopping five years in prison and a hefty $250,000 fine.
The agents said they would report their findings to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the US Department of Education, but none of the three agencies responded to the Post’s request for comment.
Omar’s office also did not respond to a request for comment but, in the past, she has called the rumors “disgusting lies.”
“As soon as Ilhan Omar married him he started university at her alma mater North Dakota State University where he graduated in 2012,” The Somalispot reported in 2016.
“Shortly thereafter, he moved to Minneapolis where he was living in a public housing complex and was later evicted. He then returned to the United Kingdom where he now lives,” it said.
President Donald Trump once responded to reporters who asked about the rumors when he said “There’s a lot of talk about the fact that she was married to her brother. I know nothing about it.”
Omar’s personal life has been the subject of much tabloid fodder, including her recent divorce from Ahmed Hirsi after reports surfaced that she was having an affair.

Omar stayed married to Elmi until 2017, but in 2012 she had a baby with Hirsi, who she married after her divorce from the man who is alleged to be her brother was finalized.
Omar said she could not get in touch with Elmi to divorce him as he had moved back to the U.K. but records showed that he was a mere 2.6 miles from her in an apartment complex.
If she is found to have married her brother, in addition to the prison term and fines, she would likely be removed from Congress and could even be deported.
