Democrats and Radical Islamists Start False Rumor Trump Is Detaining Iranian-Americans

CAIR, the Islamic good with dubious ties to bad people, started a rumor in Washington, DC that Customs and Border Patrol agents were detaining Iranian-Americans at the border.

Democrat Rep. Barbara Lee then tweeted out “People of Iranian descent — including American citizens & green card holders — are reportedly being detained by CPB officials. We can’t let this stand.”

Naturally, thousands of people recirculated the accusation forcing Customs and Border Patrol to step in with its own tweet to deny it. But by then, it had taken on a life of its own.

And it remains false.
