WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, Rep. Ilhan Omar released a statement after she spoke with Rep. Lauren Boebert regarding a video posted last week where Boebert shared a story about seeing Omar, who is Muslim, on an elevator in the U.S. Capitol saying “She doesn’t have a backpack, we should be fine,” insinuating she was a terrorist.

After facing criticism, on Friday, the conservative congresswoman tweeted an apology “to anyone in the Muslim community” offended by her comments, but not an apology to Omar.
