Democratic Rep. André Carson says he envisions that there will be “about 30, 35 Muslims in Congress” and possibly a Muslim president or vice president by 2030.
The Indiana congressman’s remarks came Thursday evening during a “Community Congressional Reception” hosted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). In addition to Carson, speakers included newly elected Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
Carson celebrated the fellow Muslims elected to Congress in November, likening their arrival to superheroes coming “out of nowhere” to help in the wake of former Congressman Keith Ellison’s move from the House to Minnesota attorney general.
“It’s more than just about having three Muslims in Congress,” he said. “I think symbolically it has great value, but I won’t rest until 2020 we have five more members of Congress; 2022 and 24, we have 10 more Muslims in Congress. In 2030 we may have about 30, 35 Muslims in Congress.” (RELATED: REVEALED: Three Democrats Attended Private Dinner With Iran’s President And Louis Farrakhan)
