Hoda Muthana ran away from her family in Alabama, pledged allegiance to ISIS, married terrorist fighters and eventually gave birth to a son.

Now, she regrets her decision and wants to come back to the United States and face justice.

One day after the State Department said she would not be permitted to return, we talked with Hassan Shibly, a lawyer representing the Muthana family and asked him:

  • Why should she be allowed to return?
  • Was she even a citizen of the United States?
  • And why does this case affect how we interpret the Constitution?

His answers were interesting.
