"We do talk with students and offer numerous opportunities to explore issues of dialogue and professionalism in curricula and experiential learning opportunities".

"CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties", Omar said at the event.

It is not only that but as the present Democratic Party leader until an official candidate is chosen for the party, she is prodding her party members to sift through the presidential hopefuls, including Biden, in upcoming the debate process to commence in June.

In a letter Friday to the New York Democrat, Barr said her recent comments about Crenshaw "demonstrate a lack of civility that is becoming far too common in the U.S. House of Representatives".

Crenshaw responded with a tweet of his own, writing that he never called Omar "un-American" and that he never incited "any violence" against the Democrat.

Stepping into the dustup, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: "In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind nearly ALL US domestic terrorist killings".

"So here you go, you guys are breaking news".

Bale: "There are seven games to go, we'll see how we play but I can say that we will try new things and count on Gareth". We know him, he is also a player with peace of mind, you can not pressure him and I like him, I always liked him.

In the same tweet, Ocasio-Cortez pins threats she has received on Republicans, asking, "GOP, what's it going to take to stop?"

Crenshaw addressed criticism that the comments were taken out of context. "I haven't endorsed anybody, but I'm very supportive of Bernie", Ocasio-Cortez said, adding, "I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is ... truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational".

He called it the "height of partisanship" that both sides can't come together and agree that it was improper to "diminish" the attack on USA soil.

Crenshaw tweeted that Omar's remarks were "unbelievable" and that she was the "first Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as 'some people who did something'".

"This is a really dishonest attack and let me tell you how I am for 9/11 victims and 9/11 first responders".

The 29-year-old former bartender attacked Crenshaw, a decorated war hero, by suggesting that he was not fighting for the families of 9/11 victims and saying that he should "go do something" about terrorism. "@BernieSanders for recognizing these attacks clearly for what they are".
