The United States Supreme Court dealt a striking blow to the woman dubbed 'ISIS BRIDE' by rejecting her appeal.

The woman, named Hoda Muthana, had fled her home in Alabama to join ISIS, but then changed her mind and wanted to come back home to America. She claimed to be radicalized on Twitter and ended up marrying some jihadi guys and appearing to be supportive of violence, but I suppose it didn't go as she thought it would and then wanted to come back to sunny Alabama.

Here's an interview with her from 2019 where she tries to explain her story - one which the Supreme Court Justices clearly could not care less about.


The Supreme Court denied to consider the appeal, without comment, as stated on AP:

The justices declined without comment on Monday to consider the appeal of Hoda Muthana, who was born in New Jersey in October 1994 to a diplomat from Yemen and grew up in Alabama near Birmingham.

Muthana left the U.S. to join the Islamic State in 2014, apparently after becoming radicalized online.

While she was overseas the government determined she was not a U.S. citizen and revoked her passport, citing her father’s status as a diplomat at the time of her birth. Her family sued to enable her return to the United States.

A federal judge ruled in 2019 that the U.S. government correctly determined Muthana wasn’t a U.S. citizen despite her birth in the country. Children of diplomats aren’t entitled to birthright citizenship. The family’s lawyers appealed, arguing that her father’s status as a diplomat assigned to the U.N. had ended before her birth, making her automatically a citizen.
