“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.”. »
