CBC Statement in support of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar 

Congressional Black Caucus statement in support of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar representing Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional District  

 

WASHINGTON – Today, Congresswoman Joyce Beatty, Chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), issued the following statement on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. 

“Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is a valued Member of the Congressional Black Caucus Family, she represents a strong voice on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.  Furthermore, we appreciate her clarification of her recent remarks and find that this is another example of Republicans taking it out of context to shift the real attention from the abhorrent, disrespectful, and intemperate remarks of members of their own Conference. 

 “The CBC continues to prioritize our power and our message, as we fight for full equality, safe policing, better schools, affordable housing, and equal economic opportunity to attain the American dream. Congresswoman Omar brings an important perspective to these efforts, and we are pleased to have her as a Member of the Congressional Black Caucus.”
