First US Somali lawmaker gets ‘Islamophobic threats’ from cab driver

Source: ET


 The United States’ first Somali American Muslim legislator says she was harassed with “hateful” and “Islamophobic” language by her cab driver while visiting Washington. Ilhan Omar — a former refugee who wears the hijab — was elected in November to the legislature of the midwestern state of Minnesota. She said the “taunts and threats” occurred after she left policy discussions at the White House and headed to her hotel.
