An Iraqi-American man who made headlines earlier this week by claiming that his ailing mother had died because of President Donald Trumps executive order on immigration lied, according to the imam of his local mosque, Detroits Fox 2 reported Wednesday.
The original story was that Mike Hager, a U.S. citizen born in Iraq, was visiting relatives in Iraq but was forced to abandon his mother in that country when he tried to return home.
Social media exploded with accusations of murder against Trump including tweets by respected news outlets.
But the story was a lie, concocted to feed opposition against Trumps executive order, which suspends most travel from terror-prone countries previously identified as problematic by the Obama administration. Fox 2 set the record straight in a new story:
The leader of a mosque in Dearborn has confirmed to FOX 2 that a man who claimed his mother died in Iraq after being barred from returning to the United States under a ban instituted by President Trump this weekend, lied to FOX 2 about when her death occurred.
Imam Husham Al-Hussainy, leader of the Karbalaa Islamic Educational Center in Dearborn, says Mike Hagers mom did not pass away this weekend after being barred from traveling to the United States. The Imam confirms that Hagers mother died before the ban was put in place.
