Trump takes credit for blocking IS woman from US

ISIS Bride's Father Sues Trump Admin

Muthana, who is now living in a refugee camp in northern Syria after US forces and allies decimated ISIS in the region, was interviewed recently by the Guardian and ABC, saying she thought she should be allowed back into the United States.

The woman, Hoda Muthana, does not qualify for citizenship and has no legal basis to return to the country, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said.

Pompeo says Hoda Muthana does not have a US passport or any legal basis to enter the country.

Pompeo said Muthana has no "legal basis" to claim American citizenship, the AP reported. "I think she's awoken from their spell".

Muthana, who was captured in Syria by US-allied Kurdish fighters, said that she had been brainwashed online and was ashamed of her past support for the militants.

"Hoda Muthana was a vulnerable young woman who was taken advantage of by these terrorist criminal masterminds who ultimately brainwashed her and led her to make some awful choices that she deeply regrets", Muthana's attorney Hassan Shibly said.

Muthana is one of a small number of USA citizens who've joined ISIS, but America's Syrian allies are thought to be holding around 800 foreign ISIS fighters along with their wives and children. If the government claims she's not a citizen, she's entitled to challenge that.

"It's really problematic that The [New York] Times, The Guardian and ABC News have all been able to meet with her and interview her, and the government has not been able to do that", Mr Shibly said.

A lawyer for the woman's family, Hassan Shibly, said the administration's position is based on a "complicated" interpretation of the law involving her father. "She's asking that she can come and face our legal system and pay whatever debt she may have to society, and speak out to ensure other people aren't trafficked and brainwashed and abused as she was".

Nintendo Rumoured to Resurrect Platinum’s Scalebound
However, according to a recent report fromNintendo Insider, it looks like the dragon epic might be coming to Nintendo Switch . Platinum Games' Hideki Kamiya was the director on Scalebound and had a lot of passion for the project.

In a recent handwritten note obtained by CNN from a family representative, Hoda Muthana writes, "When I left to Syria I was a naive, angry, and arrogant young woman".

The United States announced it would refuse to take back the US-born woman, saying that she is no longer a citizen.

The timeline of when Muthana's father stopped being a diplomat is significant, because children born to foreign diplomats on U.S. soil are not automatically granted citizenship because they are not under the "jurisdiction" of the United States, according to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Muthana, 24, went to Syria to join ISIS and eventually married three fighters. She told The Guardian in an interview that her last four years with the terrorist group have been a traumatizing experience where "we starved and we literally ate grass".

Her father, Mohammed, told BuzzFeed he gave his daughter a smartphone after she graduated from Hoover High School in May 2013.

Before she fled, she was part of a network of young Muslims who used Twitter to soak up extremist ideas. She has called for the killing of Americans on Twitter.

Shamima Begum, a British teen who fled home to join Islamic State but now wanted to return to the United Kingdom, was facing having her citizenship stripped. So she duped her parents into thinking she was going on a college trip, and instead bought a plane ticket to Turkey with her tuition money.

Muthana is now being held in a refugee camp in northeast Syria. "I turned to my religion and went in too hard".

Muthana married an Australian jihadist, who was killed while fighting.
