The family of an Alabama woman who joined ISIS is suing the Trump admin to let her back into the US. Hoda Muthana left college in 2014 to join ISIS forces in Syria. She married several ISIS fighters and allegedly called for attacks on Americans from a Twitter account. In December she was captured by to Kurdish forces and was placed in a refugee camp with her 18-month-old son.

The Obama administration stripped Muthana of her U.S. citizenship in 2016 and on Feb 20, Trump tweeted he would not allow her back into the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo echoed Trump’s remarks.

Pompeo: Ms. Hoda Muthana is not a U.S. citizen and will not be admitted into the United States. She does not have any legal basis, no valid U.S. passport, no right to a passport, nor any visa to travel to the United States. We continue to strongly advise all U.S. citizens not to travel to Syria.

Muthana’s father filed a lawsuit against the state department
to formally recognize his daughter’s citizenship

Charles Swift / Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America: Citizenship is a fundamental constitutional right, the most valuable right you will have,.If it can be taken away, then it must be done with due process of law. Where citizenship is concerned, that’s a judicial hearing. There has to be a process. You can’t simply say it. You would have to prove it.
