Ilhan Omar arrived Wednesday at the Washington-area airport with her father one day before she will be sworn in as the first Somali-American woman elected to Congress.
Omar said it was the same airport that she and her father arrived at when they first came to the U.S. as refugees more than two decades earlier.
Omar, a Democrat who will be representing Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, shared the heartwarming moment between her and her father on Twitter, signaling hope to her fans.
