Rep. Ilhan Omar's father dies due to coronavirus

(Reuters) - The father of Somalia-born U.S. representative Ilhan Omar died on Monday evening as a result of the new corona virus.
"I share with great sadness and pain that my father, Nur Omar Mohamed, passed away today due to complications from COVID-19," said a Minnesota congressman in a statement Monday.
"No words can describe what he meant to me and everyone who knew him. My family and I ask for your respect and privacy during this time."

Omar and her father Nur Mohamed came to Somalia as refugees from Somalia during the civil war in 1995 and, according to Politico, eventually settled in Minneapolis.
Omar was elected in November 2018 along with Michigan representative Rashida Tlaib. This makes them one of the first two Muslim women to work in the US Congress.
