Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colorado) issued an apology on Friday for remarks she made that used anti-Muslim tropes to refer to Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Democratic representative from Minnesota and one of only three Muslim members of Congress.

Omar said on Thursday that Boebert made up the story, and said that anti-Muslim racism should not be allowed in Congress. Later on Friday, Omar sent a tweet calling for House leadership to take “appropriate action.”
