ALGOP Resolution Calls for Omar’s Expulsion from Congress

By Staff Reports

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — State Rep. Tommy Hanes (R-Bryant) plans to introduce a resolution at the Alabama Republican Party State Executive Committee meeting that calls for the expulsion of controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for what he calls her “anti-American” sentiments.

The resolution takes issue with Rep. Omar’s language regarding U.S. war veterans, the 9/11 terror attacks, her comments regarding ISIS, and positions she has taken on Israel.

“I along with most Alabamians are tired of Rep. Omar’s anti-American sentiments. I’m calling upon the Alabama delegation in Washington to start proceedings to expel her from her seat in the House of Representatives.”

Hanes continues, “I believe she has broken her oath of office with her anti-American sentiments. Any member of congress that chooses to break their oath to defend the U.S. constitution should be removed from office.” 

The proposed resolution reads in part, “WHEREAS, Rep. Omar has engaged in rhetoric that explicitly runs counter to American values and patriotism by falsely accusing U.S. armed forces of committing war crimes while on mission to liberate her home country of Somalia

WHEREAS, Rep. Omar dismissed the 9/11 terror attacks waged by radical Islam on the World Trade Center by stating “some people did something”

WHEREAS, Rep. Omar sympathized with a convicted terrorist and member of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria by advocating a U.S. District Judge for sentencing leniency

WHEREAS, Rep. Omar has a disturbing record of using anti-Semitic language that includes alleging Jewish money is used to buy American influence regarding its policy toward Israel; Rep. Omar is also a supporter of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaign

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Alabama Republican Party urges its elected congressional delegation to proceed with the expulsion process in accordance to Article 1, Section 5 of the U.S. Constitution to expel Rep. Ilhan Omar from the United States House of Representatives.”

It concludes by stating “the Alabama Republican Party urges its elected congressional delegation to proceed with the expulsion process in accordance to Article 1, Section 5 of the U.S. Constitution to expel Rep. Ilhan Omar from the United States House of Representatives.”

This serves as a companion resolution the Young Republicans of Northeast Alabama unanimously passed earlier this month. Dylan Smith, YRNEA Chairman and author of the resolution says, “We felt as if it was time to take a stand against this unabashed radicalism. Her animosity toward our nation and hatred of American identity uniquely disqualifies her from serving as a U.S. Representative.”

Smith continues, “The United States is a nation that welcomes those who wish to assimilate to our freedom loving culture. Rep. Omar is an ungrateful socialist ideologue who is ashamed of the country she represents. I am proud of Rep. Hanes for his courageous leadership in this effort.” 

Members of the ALGOP State Executive Committee will consider the resolution when they meet Saturday, August 24th in Auburn during their summer meeting.
