Crowd chants 'welcome home, Ilhan' as Rep Omar arrives back in Minnesota

Controversial Democratic Representative, Ilhan Omar, received a "welcome home, Ilhan" chant when she arrived back in Minnesota. She's currently part of an ongoing battle with 'The Squad' vs President Donald Trump. Omar also faces accusations of marrying her brother as part of an immigration scandal, is getting criticized for not condemning Al Qaeda, and also is accused of being an anti-Semite who has made numerous comments that people found highly disturbing.

Omar is reportedly facing some security concerns after a group of Trump supporters chanted 'send her back' at rally last week. This was a reference to Somalia, her hometown, which is filled with terrorism and crime.

Omar can be seen in the video walking through the doors into a small crowd of people chanting 'welcome home, Ilhan.'

The group was reported to be 'more than 100 people' according to USA Today.

"More than 100 people greeted her at the baggage claim area at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, reports the Star Tribune.

Omar later addressed the crowd through a megaphone, according to tweets from KTSP-TV reporter Tom Hauser.

"We are going to continue to be a nightmare to this president," she told the crowd, "because his policies are a nightmare to us and we are not deterred, we are not frightened."

Here's the video, presented by Tom Hauser.

Ilhan Omar is not very popular with Republicans in America. In fact, she constantly seems to be one of the least liked Congress members. There was most likely more people chanting 'send her back' then there are saying 'welcome home.'

Some people are criticizing this as a staged event, kinda like a photo op, in hopes to draw some positive press her way despite all the controversy she's wrapped in.
