Every American, including Rep. Ilhan Omar is entitled to the presumption of innocence. The evidence uncovered so far appears to support the conclusion that she is guilty of multiple crimes. They include marrying a sibling, immigration fraud, tax fraud, perjury and polygamy.
But then again, we might be wrong.
It is possible that the evidence (though it includes pretty specific documentation) is wrong. Maybe we have taken a number of things out of context. Or perhaps we don’t understand the distinction between a legal and a cultural marriage. That may apply to divorce as well. Normal Americans have difficulty understanding where Sharia Law ends and U.S. laws begin. How does common law fit into this? Which law takes precedent in cases like this? It is confusing indeed. That’s precisely why Rep. Omar should be given an opportunity to clarify things.
She should be given her day in court.
