Rashida Tlaib: Criticism of Ilhan Omar’s dismissive 9/11 remarks an attack on ‘us women of color’

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., said in an interview Thursday her fellow freshman colleague Rep. Ilhan Omar’s dismissive remarks about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks were taken out of context.

“I’m not for policing people. You know that’s what they’re doing to us women of color. I mean think about it. This is a diverse class. They’ve never had two Muslim women,” she said, shaking her head, in an MSNBC interview.
