Washington (CNN)The son of a victim of the September 11 terror attacks criticized Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and “The Squad” during a remembrance ceremony at Ground Zero in New York City on Wednesday.

Nicholas Haros Jr. of New Jersey wore a shirt that referenced Omar’s March remarks before the Council on American-Islamic Relations, in which she said, “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.” After reading some victims’ names Wednesday at the event commemorating the 18th anniversary of the attacks, Haros Jr. said, “Some people did something,” while pointing to his shirt, on which those words were printed. The moment came as he spoke of his late mother, 76-year-old Francis Haros, as well as friends and co-workers who died in the World Trade Center attacks.
