On March 8, the International Women's Strike is calling on women around the world to take action. Their call to action is to mount a united front against President Trump's policies; international solidarity against "the man." In other words, they want women not to show up to work, wear red, and shop at women- and minority-owned businesses—that'll teach Trump a lesson, right?
Upon further investigation, it seems there are participants in these protests who should not even be in the United States. Rasmea Yousef Odeh is a Palestinian woman who became a U.S. citizen in 2004. She had been living in the U.S. comfortably until 2014, when she was convicted of immigration fraud. It turns out that Odeh had lied about her past in order to secure citizenship in the United States.
In 1970, she was convicted of being a part of a terrorist bombing in Israel that killed two students. She served just 10 years in prison before she decided to come on over to the U.S.
