Khizr Khan Deletes Law Firm Website After Criticizing Donald Trump-Truth! & Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
Khizr Khan has gone into “panic mode” and deleted the website for his law firm that specializes in Muslim immigration to hide that he financially benefits from Muslim migration to the United States.
The Truth:
It’s true that a website for Khizr Khan’s law firm was deleted on August 2nd, but the website didn’t prove that he profited from Muslim migration to the United States.
Breitbart reported that Khizr Khan went into “panic mode” after gaining national attention following a speech at the Democratic National Convention in which he was critical of Donald Trump and deleted his law firm’s website. The reason for that, the website speculated, was to conceal “that he financially benefits from unfettered pay-to-play Muslim migration into America.”
First, we’ll start with what we know to be true. The “KM Khan Law Office” website was deleted sometime before 10:17 p.m. on August 2nd. Earlier that day, the Wayback Machine took a snapshot of the site — and a snap shop taken at 10:17 p.m. showed that it had since been deleted.
Here’s how the website appeared before it was taken down:

Breitbart took issue part of Khan’s website that listed “E2 Treaty Investors, EB5 Investments & Related Immigration Services” as one of his areas of practices. The site reported that the EB5 program “helps wealthy foreigners usually from the Middle East essentially buy their way into America.”
However, those claims a are false. Immigrant entrepreneurs are admitted into the United States to generate economic growth and create jobs through the EB5 program — but recipients of visas through the program are not “usually from the Middle East,” as Breitbart claims. In fact, they’re rarely from the Middle East, or from countries with predominately Muslim populations.
A 2016 report by the Congressional Research Service shows that China accounts for the vast majority of EB5 visas (83.5%). The only Middle Eastern country listed in the top 10 is Iran, and Iranian immigrants accounted for just 0.6 percent of EB5 visas from 2005-2009:

It seems that Breitbart and other outlets tried to use Khan’s legal work on EB5 visas to prove that he profits from Muslim migration to the U.S. — but that link doesn’t check out.
So, it’s true that Khan’s website was suddenly deleted on August 2nd — but the claim that Khan’s website proved that he profited from Muslim migration to the United States is false.
UPDATE: Khan said he took down his website because he had gotten “ugly messages” and feared that it would be hacked, the Wall Street Journal reports.
