President Donald Trump has decided not to allow a woman back into the U.S. who left the country to go fight for ISIS terrorists.
American woman Hoda Muthana left Alabama to join ISIS four years ago. Now she wants to return home after finding that becoming a terrorist wasn’t as wonderful as she thought it would be.
According to some sources, the U.S. State Department says that the woman is not a U.S. citizen and she won’t be allowed to re-enter the U.S.
The terrorist’s lawyer claims she she has seen the light and wants to “help deradicalize others.”
Nice try. But, um, no.
President Trump Tweeted about the case on Wednesday evening.
“I have instructed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and he fully agrees, not to allow Hoda Muthana back into the Country,” he wrote.
I have instructed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and he fully agrees, not to allow Hoda Muthana back into the Country!

Pompeo made an announcement, as well.
According to CNN:
Hours earlier, Pompeo declared that Muthana, who is detained in a Kurdish refugee camp, is not an American citizen.
“Ms. Hoda Muthana is not a U.S. citizen and will not be admitted into the United States. She does not have any legal basis, no valid U.S. passport, no right to a passport, nor any visa to travel to the United States,” Pompeo said in a statement.
Muthana traveled to Syria and eventually married several ISIS fighters.
But now she has terror-wannabe remorse.
“When I left to Syria I was a naive, angry, and arrogant young woman,” she said in a handwritten statement provided to CNN. “To say that I regret my past words, any pain that I caused my family and any concerns I would cause my country would be hard for me to really express properly.”
Sorry, hun. You are evil. We don’t need you here.
