A federal judge has ruled the Hoda Muthana, an American-born girl who proceeded to Syria to combine the Islamic State team isn’t a U.S. citizen.
In an interview with NBC News earlier this month, Muthana stated she thinks she”deserves another opportunity” to go back to the U.S. after openly renouncing that the extremist ideology she espoused publicly online.
The New Jersey-born girl abandoned the U.S. from 2014 to combine the terrorist group, and burnt her U.S. passport soon after arriving in Syria. She moved on to wed three ISIS fighters, all of whom were murdered.
Her dad, Ahmed Ali Muthana, was suing to procure permission for his daughter to come back to the U.S. together with her mum boy Adam.
“If you are issued a passport you are a taxpayer,” Muthana’s lawyer Charlie Swift told NBC News.
The case centers around whether Muthana’s dad, who initially arrived at the U.S. as a diplomat for the Yemeni authorities, was in his diplomatic post when she had been born in 1994.
Ahmed Ali Muthana — a naturalized U.S. citizen — states that his bill had reasoned from the months before Hoda was born, but the State Department contested.
Back in February, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told NBC News who”Ms. Hoda Muthana Isn’t a U.S. taxpayer and Won’t be admitted in the USA.”
In the end, the judge agreed that there was enough evidence that her dad was a diplomat if she had been born, and ruled that she must not have been contemplated a taxpayer in the first location.
The Alabama-raised lady became infamous for her online postings out of Syria made to recruit foreigners to join the band and perpetrate acts of violence in their home states.
In 1 post, she encouraged American jihadists to goal occasions such as Memorial Day and to”go on drivebys, and shed all their blood”
Muthana has since stated she felt guilt and suggested she”regrets every thing.”
“They could watch over me 24/7, I would be OK with this,” she told NBC News in the al-Roj refugee camp in northern Syria this season.
“I need my son to be about my loved ones, I wish to go to college, I would like to get work and I wish to have my car.”
