Rep Ilhan Omar said that she should not have to pledge allegiance to another country, and Congress is freaking out -- about to pass a resolution. We look at why they may be so distraught. There is an Oath of Allegiance and a definition of Treason that elected officials have to abide by, with fines and jailtime involved for the latter, that any influence by a foreign power that is not seen as out ally, may undermine. Should our elected officials be for sale? The Founders said no and attached penalties to foreign influence and allegiance.
