US: About that bloke who said Trump's 'Muslim ban' saw his mother die as she was banned from returning from Iraq for medical treatment

(US) The left and their camp followers are having something of a field day playing the victim card over a 90 day ban on people from 7 countries which are predominately ...Islamic. Currently the big noise story is about how an Iraqi refugee who came to live in the US during the 90s died due to being unable to return to the US for medical treatment.

Apparently Mike Hagers mother who has lived in America since 1995 died a day after being turned away from the US as a result of Donald Trump’s executive order to ban people from seven predominantly Muslim countries, Mike said his sick mother was turned away from boarding a US-bound flight from Iraq, despite showing her green card, after the family decided to return from a visit when the 75-year-old fell ill. Mike who was born in Iraq and fled with his family during the Gulf War, at which point they lived in a refugee camp for four years before being settled in Detroit in the US. In the 2000s, Mr Hager returned to Iraq where he worked for the US forces between 2003 and 2008 as an interpreter and cultural advisor, while his mother remained in the US. Mr Hager blamed his mother’s death on Mr Trump, and stated that the new policy had made him feel as though he and his family were not wanted anywhere. And then the media interviewed his Iman

Imam Husham Al-Hussainy
Imam Husham Al-Hussainy, leader of the Karbalaa Islamic Educational Center in Dearborn, says Mike Hager's mother did not pass away thisweekend after being barred from traveling to the United States. The Imam confirms that Hager's mother died before the ban was put in place.  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.
