As big a problem Rep. Ilhan Omar is for Jews, Israel and the Democratic Party, she is the face of a much bigger problem for the historic American nation: immigrants, or their children, from what it is now apparently Politically Incorrect to call the Third World being elected to Congress....

But however much she fulminates about Israel, her ultimate target is you and me, Jewish or not. She’s in Congress to change the country, and not for the better as real Americans go, given her origins in a country with zero experience in the rule of law and the democratic laws and customs that grow out of it. In Somalia, to quote Mao, power grows out of the barrel of a gun....

The Pew Research Center reports that 68 of Congress’ 535 members, or 13 percent, are immigrants or the children of immigrants. [In 116th Congress, at least 13% of lawmakers are immigrants or the children of immigrants, by Abigail Geiger, Jan. 24, 2019]. Problem is, the vast majority are non-European....

But Pew’s using “immigrant” to describe the foreign-born 1789ers elides an important truth. Those men weren’t “immigrants” in the sense that Omar and others are. They were settlers building a new nation. They weren’t immigrants demanding change to an existing polity. And they were, as John Jay said, “descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs.”

Not anymore.

The danger of a Third-World beachhead on Capitol Hill, almost all open-borders Democrats, are obvious. They consider illegal immigrants and fake refugees real constituents....

Well, the few remaining white Democrats, particularly Jews, now know what that means: giving African and other Muslims a voice in the party on Israel policy. Of course, Democrats didn’t have that in mind when they dropped the preference for immigration from Europe in 1965, thanks largely a left-wing Jewish congressman from New York, Emanuel Celler. His Irish-American messenger boy in the Senate, Ted Kennedy, helped jam the Third World immigration bill down the country’s throat after lying about it. It wouldn’t, he said, alter the country’s demographics....

Omar wants to diminish support for Israel because she hates the Jews, not because she loves the United States and wants to disentangle us from the Middle East....

Open borders doesn’t just mean flooding the country with a teeming horde of the illiterate, the unemployed, the diseased and the criminal.

It means more Omars in Congress.

And we know what that will mean for the historic American nation.
