An American woman who left Alabama to join ISIS overseas, now wants to return to the US. Hoda Muthana says she was radicalized online and went to Syria to marry an ISIS fighter. But now she says she regrets the move.
But Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Wednesday that Muthana will not be allowed in the US.
“Ms. Hoda Muthana is not a US citizen and will not be admitted into the United States. 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. We continue to strongly advise all US citizens not to travel to Syria,” Pompeo said.
While she was there in the middle of the jihadist group, Muthana sent her own messages of hate on social media, like this one:
“Americans wake up…go on drive byes and spill all of their blood…veterans, patriots, Memorial Day, kill them.”
Now, with the caliphate nearly destroyed, she’s trapped in a refugee camp with her 18-month-old child that she had with one of the two terrorists she married. Both of her terrorist husbands were reportedly killed in war.
Muthana left the US in late 2014 to join the Islamic jihadist movement – now she’s 24. She reportedly fled the group just a few weeks ago as the Islamic State approached total defeat in Iraq and Syria.
