Death threats target freshmen Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar

Freshmen Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) said that with every conservative critique they each receive, death threats spike.

Details: Ocasio-Cortez has received so many death threats that it has prompted Capitol Police to train her staff to conduct risk assessments for everyone who comes through her office, reports Time Magazine. When critics came after Omar for her comments about 9/11, threats followed as well.
