A woman born in New Jersey, who fled the United States to join the Islamic State five years ago, said she “regrets every single thing” and has fought to return home despite the loss of her citizenship.
Hoda Muthana, 25, left her family home in Alabama in 2014 after making contact with ISIS fighters through social media. Muthana had gained a large following on Twitter and expressed anti-Western ideology consistent with that of ISIS, or Daesh, including encouraging jihadis to “go on drivebys, and spill all of their blood.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Muthana was born to a Yemeni diplomat in 1994 and was issued an American passport despite some confusion about when her father’s diplomatic post officially came to end. The U.S. government argues that Muthana’s status as a U.S. citizen was issued in error because her father was in the country as a foreign official at the time of her birth. Muthana’s lawyers and family claim that she was born after her father’s post ended when the family had been issued refugee status due to unrest in Yemen.
Muthana, who married three different ISIS fighters, declared that she was part of the caliphate and burned her passport upon entering Syria in 1994. After two of her husbands died fighting and she divorced the last husband, the single mother of one surrendered to coalition forces in January 2019.
Muthana soon requested to return to the U.S.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo through President Donald J.Trump denied her reentry saying, “Ms. Hoda Muthana is not a U.S. citizen and will not be admitted into the United States. She’s a terrorist.”
