FYI: The Obama Administration, Not Trump, Determined ISIS Bride Isn’t an American

ISIS bride Hoda Muthana, who advocated for the murder of Americans and other innocent civilians in the name of jihad, is fighting to come back to America as the caliphate continues to collapse. 

The Trump administration has made its position clear: she's a terrorist, she's not an American and she isn't coming back.

"This is a woman who inflicted enormous risk on American soldiers, on American citizens. She is a terrorist. She’s not coming back. President Trump made clear that she wasn’t coming back. She is not a U.S. citizen, she is not entitled to U.S. citizenship, and she’s not coming back to our country to pose a threat," Pompeo said during an interview on Fox Business last week.

The question of Muthana's citizenship isn't a new one. Although born in New Jersey, Muthana's parents were diplomats at the time and therefore, she doesn't qualify for American birthright citizenship.

Muthana's family and attorneys, who have filed a lawsuit on her behalf, argue President Trump is abusing his power, uprooting the law and showing his bigotry by throwing aside Hoda's request to return. 

But it was the Obama administration that originally determined she doesn't qualify as an American by birth.

Funny how that detail has been buried.
