image for AOC says Pelosi’s failure to sanction Boebert over Islamophobic attack on Ilhan Omar is ‘an embarrassment’

“I haven’t heard anything binding from leadership, which in and of itself is an embarrassment,” Ms Ocasio-Cortez said.

Several members of the Democratic Party criticised Speaker Pelosi for not taking any action against Ms Boebert after she called Ms Omar part of “the jihad squad”.

Ms Boebert “needs to be held accountable for her actions”, Ms Ocasio-Cortez said, according to The Hill.

Rep Omar, the first Somali American elected to Congress, responded to the video after it spread across social media.

Meanwhile, Ms Omar has said that she has been receiving death threats since Ms Boebert’s Islamophobic attack.

Democrat André Carson met with Ms Pelosi’s aides last week to discuss how to discipline Ms Boebert.

Another Democrat, Rep Jamaal Bowman, said that failure to take action against Ms Boebert would send a “horrible message to Americans, particularly Muslim Americans.”. »

The filter can be taken out and sprayed with a fluorescent dye containing the coronavirus antibodies from the ostrich eggs. »

The land of a family in Texas that was seized earlier this year for the construction of a wall on the US-Mexican border will be returned by the Joe Biden administration.

The Texas Civil Rights Project, a nonprofit representing the family, tweeted on Tuesday that their client Eloisa Cavazos had her land returned “after fighting against the government’s seizure and border wall construction since 2018.”.

The family had battled against the Bush and Obama administrations to preserve their 6.5-acre property, but when Donald Trump pushed to erect a border wall, the Cavazos family delayed court proceedings. »
