Omar Fateh for MN Senate 62

Vote for Fatah for vote issue

My father immigrated to the US from Somalia over 50 years ago. A lot of the problems we faced then, we are still witnessing now. We have fought and struggled for human rights, civil rights, and equal protection under the law. The fight is far from over. Together, we have felt the pain of one hateful policy to the next, from xenophobic Muslim bans to heinous immigration policies. As I have said throughout my campaign, it is not enough to keep our heads up above the water and defend against the politics of hate. Yes, we must stand up for ourselves, but we must also stand up for each other, and if we want to make positive change via the political process, we must offer Minnesotans something to vote for, not just something to vote against.

Vote for issue for for Fatah

On Saturday June 23, 2018, hundreds of people gathered for A Rally to Rise Together. The speakers included multiple elected officials, political candidates, and community leaders. In the face of adversity on all levels of government, we must stand up for ourselves, but we must also stand up for each other. Our Rise Together movement is explicitly not about an "us vs them" kind of politics. We stand opposed to political inside baseball and transactional politics. Instead, we seek to create opportunities for candidates like Omar to show the public what they have to offer.

Get Legal Help | IRAP

There are immigration attorneys offering FREE legal aid to detained immigrants through the International Refugee Assistance Program at major international US airports all weekend. Dulles, JFK, O'Hare, Miami, and some others. If you know if anyone who has been detained and needs help, see if you can get them connected to one of these attorneys.

Friends and family ask me why I linger in Somalia? What is it that attracts me to such "harsh" life?

Locals swear I have been outcasted by society, and my reasons for being here is merely out of necessity.

Here is an article that explains a bit of why I am here.

Why I moved back to Somalia (and you should, too)

Learning Somali is good for business as well as cultural heritage!

The author writes:
"Returning diaspora members are positioning themselves for success beyond their wildest imaginations — especially compared to their prospects in the States. I’ve seen people come here with a modest amount of savings and leverage it into entire hotel chains..."

http://www.seattleglobalist.com/2016/02/02/why-i-moved-back-to-somalia-somali-diaspora-seattle/47097

Members of the diaspora are leaving a Seattle that's increasingly inhospitable for working class immigrants and people of color, and moving back to Somalia to rebuild.

U magac bixinta afka soomaaliga Iyo aqoonta ku hareeraysan ayaa siyaabo badan loo dhigay oo erey murtiyeed lagu soo ururiyay. Sida aragtida oranaysa afka soomaaligu waa tix Iyo tiraab oo laga soo xigtay gabayadii raage Ugaas allah haw arxamee.
Sidoo kale, aniga gardaadshahaygii laaxintiraha ahaa waa Saciid warsame ilkaxiir oo lagu naanaysi jirey (jebeli) wuxuu ii baray inay tuducda Ama tixda sugaantu ka kooban tahay EREY YO Iyo UJEEDDO.

Haddaba Waxa jira laba dembi suugaaneed oo waagan dambe la caadaystay.

Labadaa arimood waa gef Iyo gabood fal qofka ku talaab sanaya la sahlan Laakiin xanuun keeda leh.
Waxa jira wax la yiraa maanso dheeg, waa marka qof isku deyeya inuu wax Hal abuuro dhex galo sugaantii hore loo sameeyey, hadba ereyga iyo tuducda uu quudhi waayo ka gurto oo si badheedha ah hal muceedka uga togto.

Wax yaabaha dadku dheegaan oo sumad dooriyaan Waxa ka mida ereyada Iyo u jeeddada labadaba.
Arintaasi waa tan keentay inaan aragno Hal sheeko ama gabay Amaba halku dheg oo hebello Iyo deegaanno kala duwan lagu sheego. Amaba dad kala duwani sheegtaan.

Gabood falka labaad waa kasii xanuun badanyahay maansa dheegga.
Waxana la yiraa maansa booli.
Waa marka gabay, sheeko, maahmaah Iyo waxii hadal murtiyaad ah oo hanaqaad ah oo qof hore lahaa, mid kale si cad u sheegto oo intuu magacii xaqlaha tuuro fagaaraha is la soo taago.

Falalkan waxa dhiiri geliyey wax qoraal la'aanteennii hore iyo is gaadhsiinta oo siday maanta tahay aan beryihii hore ahayn.

Geba gebadii maygu raacsantahay in aan ka hor nimaadno, dhaqannadaa qof mootan Ama maqan u quudhi waayey midhkii hibadiisa Hal abuur keentay.

Mays la qaadanaa inaan dhaqankaan hanti ka qaadka ah oo boolida u haysta xoolo mood Iyo nool ah oo la dhacay Laakiin aan dareensanayn Amaba sahashadey ka sariigad la'aanta hantida Hal abuur.
Mays la falanqaynaa xeer u samaynta arintaa.
Haddii saaxiibada aan akhriswadaagta nahay kasoo tiraab celiyaan aragtidan Waxan ra'yi ku darsan doonaa talaaboo yinka loomari karo xeer ka ku wajahan arintan.
