“ISIS bride” Hoda Muthana is not a US citizen — and America is under no obligation to let her back into the country, a federal judge ruled Thursday, according to a new report.
Judge Reggie Walton found there was enough evidence to prove Muthana — the US-born mom who fled her home in Alabama to join the terror group in Syria in 2014 — was born while her father was a Yemeni diplomat, BuzzFeed News reported.
The judge said Muthana’s father, Ahmed Ali Muthana, can’t provide financial support to either her or her 2-year-old son without facing potential charges of providing material support to terrorism.
Ahmed claimed in a lawsuit that he surrendered his diplomatic status on June 2, 1994, months before his daughter was born in Hackensack, New Jersey. Her family said Hoda also had a legitimate passport whens he left the US to join ISIS.
The Obama administration initially determined she was not a citizen and notified her family that it was revoking her passport in January 2016.
Under the Immigration and Nationality Act, a person born in the US to an accredited foreign diplomatic officer is not subject to U.S. law and is not automatically considered a US citizen at birth.
