Omar's tweets were a response to Carlson's rant at the end of his show Tuesday in which he called her "living proof that the way we practice immigration has become unsafe to this country" and suggested she should've never been allowed into the country.
Yes, Carlson is using a woman who came to the U.S.as a refugee and rose to break multiple barriers and become a member of the United States Congress as an example of people not feeling "fully American" and not contributing enough to American society.
Mr. Carlson, who previously called Ms. Omar "a symbol of America's failed immigration system", started by praising the lawmaker's story as an American success. Fox News previously rebuked its controversial conservative host Jeanine Pirro after she questioned the congresswoman's loyalty to the USA on her show earlier this year.More news: Julio Iglesias loses paternity trial
"Not gonna lie, it's kinda fun watching a racist fool like this weeping about my presence in Congress", she tweeted.
Appearing before a crowd of Richfield High School students, Omar recalled how five years prior, she was working for a Minneapolis city councilman and was tasked with documenting problems with the courts. "Not at all. After everything America has done for Omar and her family, she hates this country more than ever. A few years later, she became a member of Congress elected by voters who are proud to see an immigrant succeed", Mr. Carlson said.

"She might have had a prior [arrest]", the Minnesota Democrat said. Carlson's latest tirade, Lawrence tweeted, "is probably the most racist shit this guy has said on his show and he's said a lot of racist shit". She fled the Somali civil war into a Kenyan refugee camp and then arrived at age 12 in the United States, where she has said she found discrimination and racism incompatible with the expectations of American idealism. He claims that "some of the very people we try hardest to help have come to hate us passionately". "A system created to strengthen America is instead undermining it".More news: Galaxy Note 10 vs Galaxy S10+: What We Know So Far
The Fox host suggested that the country may be "importing people" from countries "whose values are simply antithetical to ours". After the woman was fined $80 for the crime, Omar said she couldn't control her emotions and yelled, "Bulls-t!" in the courtroom. She's a living fire alarm.
