Donald Trump: Islamic State Bride Not Allowed Back to the United States

"Hoda Muthana is not a U.S. citizen and will not be admitted into the United States", Mike Pompeo said in a statement on Wednesday. And they failed to act on it and that's really concerning, ' he said. "Kill them", she once tweeted.

However, Muthana's case is unusual, if not unprecedented in that she once held a United States passport.

Hours earlier, Pompeo declared that Muthana, who is detained in a Kurdish refugee camp, is not an American citizen.

In contrast, a majority of American men caught on the battlefield were the subject of sealed indictments and have been repatriated to face charges.

After being smuggled into ISIS-controlled territory, she tweeted a photo of an American passport, with the caption "bonfire soon, no need for these anymore".

Muthana's status had been considered by lawyers from the departments of State and Justice since her case arose, according to one USA official who was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. "Americans wake up!" she wrote on Twitter in 2015, according to a profile in BuzzFeed News.

LaPorta, her classmate, said that Hoover residents in a private Facebook group overwhelmingly said they did not want her back. Instead, she had secretly renewed her passport and was on her way to the Islamic State in Syria, using college tuition money to pay for a plane ticket.

Last month, as Kurdish forces backed by US-led coalition aircraft beat ISIS back to territory only kilometers wide, she made a decision to attempt an escape. She told them she was heading to a university event.

Earlier Wednesday, Pompeo said in a statement that she "is not a US citizen and will not be admitted into the United States". It is nearly certain that they will pursue further legal action in an attempt to force the USA government to take Hoda Muthana back from her failed caliphate experience.


Muthana married an Australian jihadi extremist who died in battle before marrying a Tunisian ISIS terrorist who also died in battle.

But a USA official said a later investigation showed that she had not been entitled to her passport, adding: "Ms. Muthana's citizenship has not been revoked because she was never a citizen".

Muthana is one of a small number of USA citizens who've joined ISIS, but America's Syrian allies are thought to be holding around 800 foreign ISIS fighters along with their wives and children.

He also released a 2004 document from the U.S. Mission to the United Nations certifying that Muthana's father was serving as a diplomat until September 1, 1994, one month before Muthana was born.

That law does not apply in Muthana's case, said Charlie Swift, the director of the Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America, who is representing her family.

'She may have been born here, ' Pompeo repeated.

Hoda Muthana wants to return to Alabama with her 18-month-old son, who she had with a now dead Tunisian soldier.

But Muthana's lawyer says that she is a USA citizen and holds a US passport.

"But Muthana insists she was "brainwashed" and manipulated" by the terror group and will not pose a threat to Americans. There are not over 800 terrorists that are being held. Now a mother and a widow, she's living in a refugee camp. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.
