  • Federal Judge Rules U.S.-Born ‘ISIS Bride’ Not an American Citizen, U.S. Not Required to Repatriate Her

    A federal judge ruled Thursday that 25-year-old Hoda Muthana, who lived in Alabama but left the U.S. in 2014 to join ISIS, is not an American citizen and therefore the country is not required to repatriate her.Muthana is the daughter of Yemen's former ambassador to the United Nations, Ahmed Ali Muthana. Judge Reggie Walton ruled that because Hoda was born while Ahmed Ali still had diplomatic status, Hoda could not be considered a U.S. citizen. Ahmed Ali has since become a naturalized citizen.In addition, Walton ruled that Ahmed Ali cannot provide financial aid to his daughter, who escaped from ISIS to a Kurdish refugee camp in 2018. Hoda Muthana has a son, Adam, who was born in ISIS territory.U.S. law prevents the children of foreign diplomats from receiving American citizenship by birthright. Lawyers for Muthana’s family had claimed Ahmed Ali’s diplomatic status expired two months before Hoda’s birth in New Jersey, a claim apparently rejected by Judge Walton.Muthana had previously said in an interview that she wished to return to the U.S.“I want my son to be around my family, I want to go to school, I want to have a job and I want to have my own car," she said in an interview with NBC.The woman had previously called on jihadists in the U.S. to "go on drivebys, and spill all of their blood.” “Anyone that believes in God believes that everyone deserves a second chance, no matter how harmful their sins were,” Muthana told NBC.President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have previously expressed opposition to authorizing Muthana’s return.“I have instructed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and he fully agrees, not to allow Hoda Muthana back into the Country!” Trump wrote on Twitter in February of this year.

  • After Shooting At Her High School, Katie Hill Says We Have No Choice But To Flip The Senate

    WASHINGTON, DC - OCTOBER 31: Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) answers questions from reporters at the U.S. Capitol following her final speech on the floor of the House of Representatives October 31, 2019 in Washington, DC. Hill announced she is resigning from Congress in the midst of an ethics probe regarding allegations she engaged in a relationship with a staff member, and the release of intimate photographs. (Photo by Win McNamee/Getty Images)Former California Rep. Katie Hill spoke out about Thursday’s shooting at her alma mater Saugus High School in Santa Clarita. In the large suburban public school, which is about 30 miles north of L.A., two teenagers were killed and three are injured being treated in area hospitals. A suspect is in custody and being treated at a local hospital. Hill, who resigned in late October amid accusations of relationships with subordinates, had said she plans to be more vocal and candid now that she’s not bound by the protocols of Congress. She particularly promised to speak out on so-called “revenge porn,” which she herself says she was a victim of in her scandal. Her first opportunity to speak candidly ended up being a shooting that hit very close to home. “Saugus High School was my home for my entire high school career,” Hill said in a statement provided to Refinery29. “So many of our campaign volunteers and interns are students there, so many parents who are friends and supporters have children who they drop off there each and every day. My parents’ friends are continuing to wait in a nearby park as we speak to be reunited with their kids. No child should go to school and fear for their life, and yet when talking to students on the campaign trail and as their Congressperson, the message they sent was loud and clear: They weren’t worried about if a shooting would happen at their school. They were simply waiting for when.”Hill, who still lives in the community, called CNN and MSNBC to describe the “powerlessness” she felt as a freshman member of Congress who helped pass the House background checks bill, the first major gun bill in over 20 years, as well as a bill that would closed the “boyfriend loophole” in the Violence Against Women Act, and one to fund research on gun violence. These pieces of legislation, she said, would help prevent mass shootings such as this one - but they were left to languish on Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s desk.“It’s your worst nightmare. Every single member of Congress is constantly in the back of their head as to whether something like that is going to happen in your home district because it’s the worst thing that can happen,” she told CNN. “What are we supposed to say at this point? We’ve passed the background checks, we’ve passed four different pieces of legislation that would make an immediate impact on reducing gun violence, and it’s just sitting on Mitch McConnell’s desk, there’s nothing more. … It says to me with complete and utter clarity, we don’t have a choice but to flip the Senate and to get somebody in the White House who is going to make this a priority… If you think that the safety of our kids matter, then that’s to me what needs to get you to the polls.” Hill, who herself is a gun owner, has long made it a point to speak out about gun safety in her community, which she told MSNBC has a high number of gun owners than average.“Right now, I’m in my backyard, I can hear the helicopters, I can hear the sirens…we’re just devastated and really praying for people to recover,” she told MSNBC.Related Content:Like what you see?
