The development comes as a US Senate candidate, Roy Moore, tweeted "President Trump was right, she should go back to Somalia".
There have been calls from Alabama Republicans and conservatives in general for Ms Omar's expulsion from Congress, over her stance on Israel.
Omar has denied charges that she’s anti-Semitic, having also faced censure from her own party.
In the past, she has also apologised for stoking stereotypes of Jews in her remarks against lobbyists.
