The main Muslim ladies chose to the United States Congress, Rashida Tlaib, the little girl of Palestinian foreigners, and Ilhan Omar, an onetime Somali displaced person, were confirmed on Thursday.
The two ladies — Omar, 37 and Tlaib, 42 — are Democrats from the Midwest and candid promoters of minority networks that have ended up in the sights of US President Donald Trump’s enemy of worker arrangements.

Nobody puts a scarf on my head yet me,” she tweeted last November. “It’s my decision – one ensured by the main correction. What’s more, this isn’t the last boycott I will work to lift.”
Omar won a House situate in an unequivocally Democratic area in Minneapolis, Minnesota, succeeding Keith Ellison who was himself the primary Muslim at any point chose to Congress.
