Rashida Tlaib, at Trump – heckler, is about to make history in Congress after her primary win becoming the first Muslim woman to win. Rashida is a Michigan Democrat was arrested two years ago after disrupting a Trump rally.
The primaries look to be in her future because the Democrat is running unopposed. This woman has an arrest on her record and she is still able to be on the ballot? You won’t believe who she aligns herself with…
“In 2008, Tlaib, the daughter of two Palestinian immigrants, became the first Muslim woman ever to be elected to Michigan state legislature and the second elected to a state legislature in the United States.
The seat Tlaib is set to take was formerly held by former Rep. John Conyers who resigned in December.
“Rashida is the perfect example of how to hustle and win the right way, not just for Muslims or Arabs, but for anyone who ever felt the system was too stacked against them and had no place for a face like theirs,” former White House liaison to American Muslims Zaki Barzinji said.
“She may be the first Muslim congresswoman, but she just opened the door for millions of Rashidas to follow.
“As a Muslim and Arab father of a 9-month-old baby girl, I’ve never felt more hopeful about my daughter’s future.”
The Democrat’s campaign biography states she will work to secure $15 minimum wage, increase education funding, free health clinics and Medicare-for-all.
She has also been an outspoken critic of the Trump Administration, and was arrested two years ago for disrupting the new president’s speech in Detroit.
“Rashida sees a lot of herself in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” Goddeeris said of the progressive Democrat.
“We feel like we are part of this wave that’s coming: unapologetically progressive people who are unafraid of taking on the Democratic establishment.”
