Rep. Ilhan Omar on meeting with children held at migrant facilities: "I was one of those kids"

04:56

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota joined Ali Velshi to discuss the upcoming trial of Derek Chauvin and her recent visit to migrant facilities at the border. She has a personal relationship with those who come at a young age because at one time, she too was a refugee seeking asylum. She says these children are “seeking a better life. I was one of those kids. When my country fell into civil war in Somalia, I fled to neighboring country Kenya and I was met with humanity and dignity because people have understanding and respect for international law.”
