In 2019, Omar created a whirlwind of controversy when she deleted a tweet from 2013 that wished a Happy Father's Day to a man named Nur Said - who is rumored to be her brother that she married to help him fraudulently obtain a US green card.

Months earlier, the left-leaning Minneapolis Star-Tribune and other outlets including the Washington Examiner reported on public documents that raised questions as to whether Omar married her own brother as a means to skirt immigration laws
As the Star Tribune reported in June, Omar filed joint tax returns with Hirsi in 2014 and 2015 while she was still legally married to Elmi, and she was fined by Minnesota's campaign-finance watchdog for paying a lawyer with campaign funds to fix the mistake, since federal law prohibits people from filing joint returns with a person who is not their spouse.
At about the same time, the Examiner published a story reporting that in dozens of publicly available traffic violation and court records, Hirsi "listed his address at a single Cedar Riverside address consistently in 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011," the same address Omar listed in separate traffic-violation cases, including during the time he was split from Omar. -Insider
Omar has vehemently denied the claims. In January, 2020 the FBI announced they were investigating whether Illhan married her brother, only to drop the case after Omar's ex-husband Elmi had moved overseas.

After House Democrats, Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger voted 223-207 to censure GOP Repo. Paul Gosar over a now-deleted tweet of the altered intro to "Attack on Titan" in which he appears to slay President Biden and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Lauren Boebert took to the House floor on Wednesday to give Democrats a piece of her mind.
First, she ripped "Jihad Squad member" Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for allegedly paying her husband "and not her brother-husband" over $1 million in campaign funds, adding "this woman is on the foreign affairs committee while praising terrorists."
Boebert also laid into "my colleague, and three-month presidential candidate from California - who is on the intelligence committee - slept with feng-feng, a Chinese spy."
Both Swalwell and Omar responded Wednesday after the rant:
Weird. If I had done anything wrong the FBI would have raided my house. They didn’t (and went as far to issue a statement saying I did nothing wrong). BUT yesterday they did raid the home of @laurenboebert’s campaign manager. They’re always projecting. https://t.co/FLCkPghbsr— Rep. Eric Swalwell (@RepSwalwell) November 17, 2021
Luckily my dad raised me right, otherwise I might have gone to the floor to talk about this insurrectionist who sleeps with a pervert. I am grateful I was raised to be a decent human and not a deprived person who shamefully defecates & defiles the House of Representatives. 🙏🏽 God https://t.co/F5W9LBzjCZ— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) November 17, 2021
