If we believe what we hear in the media, the recent travel restrictions on countries infamous for exporting terror are not so much intended to protect innocent Americans, as to express bigoted spiteful hate. This phony narrative has been made more poignant with the help of a favorite tactic of moonbats and their Islamic allies of convenience — the hoax:
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 Hager’s mom did not pass away this weekend after the travel ban was put in place. The Imam confirms that Hager’s mother died before the executive order was signed.
Husham Al-Hussainy is not your average imam. He voted for Trump, and does not have a problem with the travel restrictions.
On Tuesday, Mike Hager told FOX 2 that he and his family were stopped while trying to return from Iraq to Michigan. He said that he was allowed through because of his American citizenship but his ailing mother and other family members were not. He then claimed that his mom passed away in Iraq on Saturday, as he was traveling to the United States.
Actually, she passed away on January 22, not January 28. Trump signed the executive order in question on January 27.
Caught in his lie, Hager blathered about being on “heavy medication.” A more likely explanation is that he exploited his mother’s death by turning it into a hate hoax for political reasons, leading the gullible to assume that she might have lived if only Trump had allowed her to continue the kidney treatment she had been undergoing in Michigan.
