Reginald Black

On March 15, Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Democrat from Minnesota, spoke at a rally in front of the U.S. Capitol as part of the international student walk out to protest inaction on climate change. Omar took the opportunity to restate her argument that “our homeless crisis is America’s dirty little secret. This year we’ll spend around $700 billion on the military. With an investment of up to $20 billion, we could house every homeless person in the U.S.”
