The U.S. President Donald Trump refused to admit 24 year-old Hoda Muthana into the United States after she had joined the terrorist outfit ISIS.
President Trump instructed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on twitter “not to allow Hoda Muthana back into the country,” breaking protocol to comment on an individual’s immigration issue.
Muthana was raised in Hoover, Alabama. She said she was brainwashed by social media messages and headed to Syria without her parents’ knowledge in 2014. Her social media posts glorified the extremist group.
Now since ISIS weakened to the last stretch, she expressed her will to return to the United States.
Muthana said she has renounced extremism and wants to return home with her toddler son. Her handwritten note says, “To say that I regret my past words, any pain that I caused my family and any concerns I would cause my country would be hard for me to really express properly.”
The U.S. said she is not a U.S. citizen and will not be admitted into the United States. The U.S. grants citizenship to everyone born on its soil, and it’s believed that Muthana travelled to Syria on a U.S. passport.
Now since President Trump denied her entry into the U.S, and also as Secretary of State says she isn’t a U.S. citizen, Muthana showed a birth certificate that demonstrated she was born in New Jersey in 1994.
It is very difficult for anyone to lose U.S. citizenship, the 14th Amendment to the U.S. establishes that anyone born in the country is a citizen with full rights.
