Ilhan Omar focus of anti-immigrant theories shared on social media by 2 Homeland Security agents

Two federal special agents are under review by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for sharing and showing approval of social media posts promoting unfounded, anti-immigrant conspiracy theories involving U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar.

Leslie Derewonko, a Homeland Security Investigations senior agent, shared an inaccurate LinkedIn post with a video that suggested Omar took a class in which terrorism was discussed.

In sharing the post, Derewonko added, “And this is what represents America?”

Derewonko has previously engaged in promoting obscure, anti-immigrant conspiracy theories on LinkedIn, according to an ABC News review of posts from his account going back several weeks. In sharing other posts, he used the term “White America” multiple times.

Derewonko could not be reached for comment.


I would say without heistation the guy is probably a racist.

1. "Class in which terrorism was discussed" LOL what?

Even if true... THAT’s the latest smear?

I have Breaking Bad on my Netflix... guess that means I’m a drug lord.

I actually have taken a class on terrorism, and one on doomsday cults, and one on Shakespeare. Guess that makes me a Hamlet quoting doomsday terrorist cult leader.
