Trump said on Twitter that he has “instructed” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “not to allow Hoda Muthana back into the country” which is seen as a break with usual US protocol not to comment on individuals’ immigration issues.

Ms. Hoda Muthana is not a US citizen and will not be admitted into the United States,” Pompeo said in a terse statement. She does not have any legal basis, no valid US passport, no right to a passport, nor any visa to travel to the United States,” he said

Muthana’s lawyer, Hassan Shilby has however showed a birth certificate that demonstrated she was born in New Jersey in 1994 and said her father had ceased being a diplomat “months and months” before her birth.

“She is a US citizen. She had a valid passport. She may have broken the law and, if she has, she’s willing to pay the price,” Shilby told AFP at his office in Tampa.

He said Muthana wanted due process and was willing to go to prison if convicted. “We cannot get to a point where we simply strip citizenship from those who break the law. That’s not what America is about. We have one of the greatest legal systems in the world, and we have to abide by it.”

  1. Me Trump isn’t following what will make him appreciated at all… He need to look into her sandal and amend things than worsen it at such time….

  2. Mr Trump can not treat a citizen like that, well if she really know she’s a citizen, she should stand up, defend and fight for her right.

  3. Donald trump is the president and has the right to make any amendment or anything concerning his county.

  4. I don’t think is totally fair to bar her from entering . She is not her husband who is an ISIS member .

  5. O respect trump no nonsense approach to situations but stripping someones citizenship is just wrong on so many levels

  6. Yes Hoda cannot be stripped of her citizenship right by her breaking the law. Let the law take it cause not by mere Presidential order.

  7. Mr Trump can not treat a citizen like that, well if she really know she’s a citizen, she should stand up, defend and fight for her right.

  8. Fine and good that America has the biggest legal system in the world but things can change and more so,he is the president of the country.
