ISIS bride Hoda Muthana told an NBC reporter she anticipated no problem in returning to the United States.
Well, that hit a snag on Monday when federal judge Reggie Walton denied her request to push her case to the front of the line.
The real issue is citizenship, to my mind.
Was Hoda Muthana a U.S. citizen at birth, considering the entire family is here because her father was a diplomat? I don’t think so.
And if she was a citizen, can her citizenship be stripped after she denounced the United States of America, surrendered or destroyed her passport, called for attacks against Americans, traveled to Syria to join ISIS, and provided aid and comfort to the enemy — who killed Americans and other innocent people?
I don’t think she’ll be allowed back, which is appropriate.
Moreover, I would encourage the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security to keep an eye on the rest of her family and move to expel them immediately if they make any wrong moves against the U.S., where they currently enjoy the comforts of the world’s greatest nation.
An Alabama woman who joined the Islamic State has lost the first round in her legal fight to return to the U.S. with her toddler son.
A federal judge in Washington denied a request to consider Hoda Muthana’s case on an emergency basis. That means she won’t be able to immediately leave a refugee camp in Syria and fight her citizenship claim inside the U.S.
But Judge Reggie Walton did say the 24-year-old woman’s lawyer made a “valid argument” for her right to citizenship during a hearing Monday.
The U.S. says Muthana is not a citizen because her father was a Yemeni diplomat at the time of her birth in New Jersey. Her lawyers argue he was no longer a diplomat at the time. A ruling could come this summer. (source: The Washington Times)
Finally, there’s a judge who supports the rule of law and equal application of jurisprudence.
I assumed all judges were in the pockets of the leftists and socialists at this point.
There may be hope for our governance and sovereignty after all.
ISIS recruits women for the purpose of gaining sympathy from Americans so they can infiltrate our country and set off attacks.
She wasn’t afraid for her life during all these years — but now suddenly she claims she’s in danger.
No way should we let this woman back into the country.https://t.co/reoOtxAskK

Maybe her parents need to be investigated for possible deportation as well.
If her passport was revoked three years ago, that’s pretty good evidence she isn’t what she says she is.
Remember who was in office three years ago — and if action was taken, then there is merit to the claim that she isn’t an American by birth.
She hasn’t thought this through. If she ever touches U.S. soil, she’ll be put on trial for treason.
