POINT OF NO RETURN: Pompeo Doubles-Down, Says NO WAY BACK for ‘ISIS Wife’

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.04.19

Attorneys representing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the US government doubled-down on the Trump administration’s insistence that Hoda Muthana -commonly referred to as the ‘ISIS Wife’- is not a US citizen and cannot return to the country.

Pompeo’s lawyers claim Muthana was never actually an American citizen, writing “Those claims are profoundly flawed because Muthana is not and has never been a U.S. citizen, and her son likewise is not a U.S. citizen.”

“She was born to parents who enjoyed diplomatic-agent-level immunity at that time of her birth, so she was born not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, and did not and could not acquire U.S. citizenship at birth,” adds the statement.

“The government informed Muthana more than three years ago that she is not a citizen and canceled her erroneously issued passport,” Pompeo’s lawyers wrote in the filing. “Muthana — who was at the time a member of ISIS — failed to act timely in response to that notification, [and] remained in a war zone through hostilities for a period of years.”

DEM SENATOR: Trump Admin Should Allow ‘ISIS WIFE’ Back to US to Face Justice System

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.25.19

Alabama Democratic Senator Doug Jones weighed-in over the weekend on the alleged ‘ISIS wife’ and her family’s request to return to the United States; saying the Islamic State sympathizer should be brought back to the US to stand trial.

“While I certainly understand the initial reaction to prohibit Hoda Muthana from coming back to the United States, I am concerned that allowing anyone who has committed crimes against the people of this country to remain beyond the reach of our justice system is the wrong approach and sends the wrong message,” Jones said Sunday.

“My view is that she should absolutely be brought to justice for inciting violence against Americans. Doing so would send a powerful message that any American who lends support to a terrorist organization will be pursued to the fullest extent of the law,” he added.

President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo denied Muthana’s request last week; saying she is no longer an American citizen.

The father of the Alabama-born ‘ISIS wife’ hoping to return to the United States is suing the Trump administration to allow his daughter to come back to the country, reports Fox News.

“The father of the Alabama woman begging to be let back into the U.S. after leaving years ago to join ISIS is now launching a legal campaign against President Trump, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Attorney General William Barr,” writes Fox.

Legal representatives from the Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America filed a lawsuit on behalf of Ahmed Muthana -father of Hoda Muthana- claiming her U.S. citizenship should be recognized despite her defection to the Islamic State.

“I have instructed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and he fully agrees, not to allow Hoda Muthana back into the Country!” tweeted the president Wednesday.
