Ilhan Omar's Daughter Isra Arrested At Anti-Israel Columbia Protests

The daughter of U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., was arrested Thursday in connection with protests at Columbia University, law enforcement sources told Fox News.

Isra Hirsi was in the custody of the New York Police Department and put into flex cuffs or zip ties and will face trespassing charges, according to sources. Along with more than 100 people, she was given a summons for trespassing, the NYPD said.

Earlier in the day, Hirsi said she was suspended from Barnard College, located near Columbia, for “standing in solidarity with Palestinians facing a genocide.”

“Those of us in Gaza Solidarity Encampment will not be intimidated,” she wrote on X. “We will stand resolute until our demands are met. our [sic] demands include divestment from companies complicit in genocide, transparency of @Columbia’s investments and FULL amnesty for all students facing repression.”

Dozens of anti-Israel activists began protesting at Columbia University on Wednesday morning, creating an encampment on the main lawn in protest of Israel’s war against Hamas. Fiery protests continued into the overnight hours with calls for an intifada and the death of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
