Four years ago, Hoda Muthana, of Alabama, told her family and friends that she was going to Turkey to attend college.
Instead, she traveled to Syria to become the bride of ISIS fighters.
She now wants to return home and both President Trump and Secretary of State Pompeo have stated she will not be allowed back into the United States.
Her father has filed a lawsuit, claiming that since she was born in the US that she is a US citizen And therefor entitled to be allowed to return.
On Sunday, Pompeo doubled down, saying that Muthana is a non-citizen terrorist and will not be allowed to return to the US.
The National Sentinel – Sec. of State Pompeo RIPS legal claim by ISIS wife: ‘She’s a terrorist and she’s NOT coming back’ – Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blasted a lawsuit filed on behalf of the wife of an Islamic State fighter during a segment on “Fox News Sunday,” forcefully noting that she’s a “non-citizen terrorist” who “is not coming back” into the United States.
The suit, filed against the Trump administration last week by Ahmed Ali Muthana, father of Hoda Muthana, 24, of Alabama, argues that she’s an American citizen by birth and as such, the government must recognize that and “accept Ms. Muthana and her son back into the United States and to use all available means to do so.”
But Pompeo said that Muthana intentionally left the United States to join ISIS and that in doing so she deliberately endangered American soldiers, adding that the suit won’t prevail in court.
“She’s a non-citizen terrorist; she has no legal basis for a claim of U.S. citizenship,” Pompeo told anchor Chris Wallace…
I fully agree with Pompeo.
When Muthana left the United States under false pretenses to join ISIS, it not only defines here as a terrorist but as a traitor to her nation as well.
She joined an organization that is a well-known enemy of the United States and most of the world.
That makes her a terrorist, traitor, enemy and someone who has no US citizenship or right to return to what used to be her home.
If she does try to come home, she should be arrested, charged with terrorism and treason and then imprisoned for her crimes.
