ISIS bride who married string of jihadis stripped of her US citizenship – News Live


 An American-born ISIS bride has been banned from returning to the USA.  Hoda Muthana’s case echoes that of Shamima Begum, who fled London aged 15 to join Islamic State’s self-proclaimed caliphate in Syria and now wants to return with her newborn son  Muthana, 24, travelled to Syria more than four years ago to join ISIS, marrying a succession of ISIS militants, encouraging attacks on the West in a series of tweets and giving birth to a child  Trump’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said Muthana no longer qualifies for US citizenship and has no legal basis to return to the country  Muthana’s father, Ahmed Ali Muthana, has filed a lawsuit in the federal court in Washington, DC, stating his daughter is a US citizen and should be allowed to come back with her toddler    Her lawyer Hassan Shibly said she’s willing to spend decades in prison if she is allowed to return to America  Muthana’s family and lawyer claim the US determined she did not qualify for citizenship because her father was a Yemeni diplomat working in the US when she was born in Hackensack, New Jersey, in October 1994  But her family claim her father was not a diplomat at the time of her birth, meaning she is entitled to US citizenship    Pompeo’s statement did not explain why the State Department did not consider Muthana a US citizen  Former president Barack Obama’s administration initially ruled she was not a citizen, notifying her family in January 2016 that her passport was being revoked  Both Muthana and Begum, 19, are living in Syrian refugee camps after ISIS lost its last strongholds amid heavy casualties, and begging to be allowed back into US and UK, respectively  Muthana was radicalised online before she left her home town of Hoover, Alabama, for Syria  In media interviews this week, she said she was sorry for her actions and wanted to return to her family with her son  But Pompeo said she was not a US citizen and would not be admitted into the US.  He said in a statement: “She does not have any legal basis, no valid US passport, no right to a passport, nor any visa to travel to the United States ”  Trump said on Twitter he had directed Pompeo “not to allow Hoda Muthana back into the Country!”  The action followed Britain’s move to revoke the citizenship of Begum, whose family have written to the Home Secretary asking for his help to bring her newborn son to Britain  The letter to Sajid Javid said the baby boy was a “true innocent” who should not “lose the privilege of being raised in the safety of this country”  The teenager has said she wanted to return to the UK with her son.  Begum was one of three schoolgirls to leave Bethnal Green to join ISIS in 2015 and resurfaced heavily pregnant at a Syrian refugee camp last week  The Home Secretary revoked Ms Begum’s British citizenship in a move only permissible under international law if it does not leave the individual stateless  It was speculated that Ms Begum, who is of Bangladeshi heritage, may have citizenship there but Bangladesh’s minister of state for foreign affairs Shahriar Alam denied this  Ms Begum earlier told Sky News she had no desire to go to Bangladesh: “I don’t have anything there, another language, I have never even seen the place ”
