Ted Cruz Explains to Ilhan Omar That What She Said About Immigration is Racist

Senator Ted Cruz chastised Ilhan Omar over a since-deleted tweet that suggested Latino immigrants aren’t capable of competing in a merit-based immigration system.

President Trump recently unveiled a new plan to overhaul America’s broken immigration system by creating a new merit-based legal immigration system. The plan, according to the President, will favor immigrants who have “the skills our economy needs.”

A merit-based system “protects American wages and safety net programs, prioritizes immediate families, and creates a fair and transparent process for immigration to America,” a statement on the White House website reads.

Representative Omar (D-MN) believes that by implementing such a system, Latino immigrants would be at a disadvantage. On her Twitter feed, she accused the plan of being racist.
