Democrat Delegate Ibraheem Samirah stood and screamed at President Trump today during his historic Jamestown speech.
By Jim Hoft – JULY 30, 2019
Ibraheem held up a sign that says, “Reunite my family.”
President Trump was interrupted by a Democrat member of Virginia’s House of Delegates during a speech Tuesday marking the 400th anniversary of the first meeting of the Virginia legislature in Jamestown in 1619–the first representative legislative assembly in the Western Hemisphere.
Democrat Ibraheem Samirah stood near the front of the stage facing the audience, holding several signs strung together and yelling, “Mr. President, you can’t send us back, Virginia is our home!” Supporters of the President booed and chanted, “Trump! Trump! Trump!”
The messages on the signs read, “Go Back to Your Corrupted Home”, “Deport Hate” and “Reunite My Family And All Shattered by Systemic Discrimination”.
Samirah, elected earlier this year at age 27 in a special election to represent the Northern Virginia town of Herndon, describes himself on Twitter as: “Dentist. Activist-Organizer. Representing the people of the 86th district as the youngest Virginia State Delegate & youngest American Muslim legislator anywhere.”
Note: During the campaign Samirah released a statement apologizing to his Jewish supporters for comments he made on Facebook as a college student.
Ibraheem interrupted the president to scream about his deported Palestinian father.
Here’s the rest of the story…
Ibraheem’s father Sabri Samirah was refused entry into the United States after he left America to visit his parents in 2002.
At the time Samirah was affiliated with several Islamic organizations in the south Chicago suburbs and was outspoken critic of Israel.
And Sabri Samirah worked with Islamic organizations that laundered money for Hamas terrorists.
Via The Chicago Tribune:
Samirah was a leader in the local Muslim community and worked with the now-defunct Islamic Association for Palestine and American Middle Eastern League for Palestine, which federal investigators alleged laundered money for Hamas. He also was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Jordan.
He applied for legal residency several times under various provisions of immigration law, and an attempt at a green card was pending in December 2002 when he traveled to Jordan to see his parents.
For that journey, Samirah was granted “advance parole,” or permission given to an immigrant to leave the country. While on his way back from Jordan in January 2003, he was stopped at a pre-inspection station in Ireland and told he had been deemed a “national security risk” by the United States and that his advance parole had been revoked. He was put in an Irish jail overnight, sent back to Jordan and told he was not allowed to re-enter the U.S.
The Obama administration let Ibraheem back in the US in 2014.
Democrat Ibraheem Samirah forgot to put that on his protest poster today in Jamestown.
