An Iraqi man recently grabbed the nation’s attention after he claimed his mother died abroad as a result of President Donald Trump’s travel ban.
This would be horrible!.. If the facts were, indeed, FACTS. The true facts reveal once again, an angry Trump-hater with a seemingly unbelievable story has been exposed as nothing more than a misguided Democrat who cried wolf.
Here are the details of the phony case.
According to Al-Hussainy, Hager’s mother had kidney disease and was receiving treatment in Michigan–where she lived–before traveling to Iraq to visit family. The Imam said she passed away on January 22, 2017, five days before President Trump instituted the travel ban.
Hager had reportedly told FOX 2 that his mother was stopped from returning to the U.S. for medical treatment after visiting her in Iraq, causing his mother to pass away while he returned to America. Hager said he was traveling with a niece, two nephews, and his mother, 75, all of whom held green cards.
Hager had blamed President Trump for the death of his mother, claiming that had she not been held in her home country she would have survived.
FOX 2 reached out to Hager for comment but has not been able to reach him.
