The ISIS bride is currently in a Syrian refugee camp waiting to be allowed back into the US, despite joining the terrorist group. Her father, Ahmed Ali Muthana, has filed a lawsuit against the Republican firebrand and his administration for saying they will block her from re-entering the country as she is not a US citizen. Mr Trump tweeted: “I have instructed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and he fully agrees, not to allow Hoda Methane back into the country.”
In a statement released Wednesday, Mr Pompeo said Hoda is not a US citizen and “will not be admitted into the US”.
He added: “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.”
As Hoda’s father was only living in the US as a Yemeni diplomat when she was born, she is not a citizen.
The children of diplomas are not given citizenship if they are born in a foreign country where their parents are posted.
But the 24-year-old, who fled her hometown of Hoover, Alabama in 2014 and has since married three jihadis, told NBC: “I know in fact that I was a citizen.
“When I tried filing for a passport it was very easy.
“It came in 10 days.
“So, I thought I didn’t have a problem, and I’m sure there is no problem and I know my lawyer hopefully is working on it and he will win the case.“
Hoda said she will do time in prison when she returns but she is not worried about it.
She also said she would rather return to the US than anywhere else.
Mr Ali Muthana filed a lawsuit in the federal court in Washington saying his daughter is a US citizen and should be allowed to return back to the US with her 18-month child.
Hoda’s lawyer Hassan Shibly said she is willing to pay for joining the sick terrorist group if she is allowed to return to the US with her child.
Mr Shibly said: “She literally expressed fear that she will possibly have to spend decades in jail potentially and she’s still willing to come back to America.
“She is accountable for her actions. She’s going to have to answer to God for her decisions.”
