WASHINGTON, DC (WNEM) -

Rep. Dan Kildee brought Sarah Hekmati to President Barack Obama's final State of the Union address to bring attention to her brother's imprisonment in Iran.

Amir Hekmati was visiting family in Iran when he was taken captive and accused of being a spy for serving in the Marine Corps on Aug. 28, 2011.

Shortly before Sarah Hekmati and Kildee were interviewed by TV5, Kildee ran into President Obama and asked about the Flint water crisis.
