The Texas teen who was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school and having it mistaken for a bomb is speaking for the first time since his visit to the White House. Standing next to California Congressman Mike Honda, Ahmed Mohamed said he is happy he was arrested because it allowed him to spread a message of not judging others by the color of their skin.
Mohamed was able to briefly meet with President Obama at the White House Astronomy Night on the South Lawn Monday night. Obama personally invited Ahmed to the event after the 14-year-old was arrested at school when his homemade clock was mistaken for a bomb by one of his teachers. Mohamed has now met with the President, Google executives and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerburg. Congressman Honda is calling for a Justice Department investigation into the incident and accused those who detained Mohamed of "Islamaphobia."
