Rashida Tlaib

In a Channel 4 interview Rashida Tlaib said: “It’s obviously blatant racism and blatant insecurity on his part that he feels threatened by a woman on how she dresses.” Rashida Tlaib, who is expected to become the first Muslim woman in the US Congress, says Boris Johnson’s comments about the burqa are “bullying”.

Tlaib won the Democratic nomination for the U.S. House of Representatives seat from Michigan’s 13th congressional district. She is running unopposed in the general election and is expected to become the first Muslim woman in Congress and the first Palestinian-American woman in Congress. She is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America.

Tlaib is a Democratic former member of the Michigan House of Representatives. Until term-limited out, she represented the 6th District, which is located in Southwest Detroit and stretches from an area just south of Downtown to the city’s southern border, and west to the city of Dearborn. Upon her swearing in on January 1, 2009, for her first term which she served in the 12th district, Tlaib became the first Muslim American woman to serve in the Michigan Legislature, and the second Muslim woman in history to be elected to any state legislature in America.
