If a Muslim man from Iraq who legally married 3 wives there moves to the US and seeks citizenship will the government prosecute him for polygamy

No, but they will not recognize him as being legally married to his second and third wives. Only the first wife will be a legal wife. If he continues to live the life of a polygamist, he may be prosecuted for bigamy or adultery, depending on the state he lives in.
