Social media links are spreading online that claim Dubai (UAE) has threatened to deport US citizens in response to the “Muslim ban” recently imposed by President Trump. The links are leading to an article on The Exposer website. However the Exposer article itself appears to be a different story than that of the links that have been generated to it. The Exposer website article is about the US Embassy in the UAE, who have suspended visa issuances to residents of any of the seven countries affected by the US ban.
Nowhere in that article is it claimed that Dubai (or the UAE) has threatened to deport US citizens.
It may be that The Exposer – a site that often publishes “satirical” articles and not real news – originally published an article purporting this rumour but later changed the nature of the article to something different.
Either way, claims that the United Arab Emirates has threatened to deport US citizens appears to be baseless. We cannot find any corroborative evidence to support this claim.
