West Bank reacts as first Palestinian-American wins seat in Congress

West Bank reacts as first Palestinian-American wins seat in Congress”

Two Muslim women emerged victorious as Democrats took over the U.S. house of representatives at the midterm elections on Tuesday.

Congresswoman-elect Ilhan Omar, the first Somali-American elected to the U.S. Congress, says she wants to make the United States more welcoming to immigrants and refugees.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) reported a 21 percent increase in anti-Muslim hate crimes in the first six months of 2018.

She has stated that President Donald Trump's "politics of fear" motivated her to run for the seat. After fleeing the country's civil war, she spent four years in a refugee camp before coming to the US when she was 14.

With no Republican opponent, Tlaib defeated Etta Wilcoxon of the Green Party and Sam Johnson of the Working Class Party. In her "CBS This Morning" interview, she said she hoped to bring a "unique insight" into the "lives and struggles" of refugees when she goes to Washington in January.

Palestinian-American Rashida Tlaib was another Muslim woman elected to the US Congress.

The oldest of 14 children, Tlaib was born to a family of Palestinian immigrants in Detroit, where her father worked at a Ford Motor Co plant.

Alongside Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Omar is also now one of the two first Muslim women to win a seat in Congress. She campaigned on a progressive platform and won the endorsement of the Democratic Party's fledging progressive wing, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Lampard added: "I'm proud of them". "It wasn't easy for Mason Mount to come here against his parent club", continued Redknapp. Fabregas scored four minutes before half-time. "There wasn't a tear in the eye, but it was emotional", Lampard said.

In a year when a record number of women are running for Congress and races across the country include more candidates of color and more gay, lesbian and transgender candidates, Tlaib and Omar add to the diversity of newcomers to the electoral process.

Omar spoke during her campaign about her opposition to President Trump's travel ban against Muslim countries.

Both women have served as state lawmakers.
