Ilhan Omar’s daughter suspended from university due to her participation in pro-Palestinian protest

WORLD, April 20 (YPA) – Rep. Ilhan Omar’s daughter announced that she has been suspended from Columbia University after participating in a pro-Palestinian protest on campus.

Isra Hirsi wrote on X that she is an organizer with Columbia University Apartheid Divest, which is advocating for the university to divest from “companies complicit in genocide.”

“I just received notice that I am 1 of 3 students suspended for standing in solidarity with Palestinians facing a genocide,” she wrote on Thursday morning.

“Those of us in Gaza Solidarity Encampment will not be intimidated. We will stand resolute until our demands are met,” she added.

Hirsi, a junior, said she had never previously been reprimanded or received any disciplinary warnings from Barnard during her time at the school.
