Hoda Muthana Nationality
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated that Muthana was not a US citizen. However, Hoda Muthana’s family and her lawyer, Hassan Shibly, maintain that she has US citizenship.
Pompeo said in a statement: “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.”
President Donald Trump tweeted: “I have instructed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and he fully agrees, not to allow Hoda Muthana back into the Country!.”
Analysts say the US government’s argument appears to hinge on the fact that her father was a Yemeni diplomat. Children born in the US to foreign diplomats are not automatically considered US citizens because they are not under US jurisdiction.
According to Muthana’s family lawyer, Hassan Shibly, “Hoda Muthana had a valid US passport and is a citizen. She was born in Hackensack, NJ in October 1994, months after her father stopped being [a] diplomat.”
Muthana has said she applied for and received a US passport before leaving for Turkey. After arriving in Syria she posted a picture on Twitter of herself and three other women burning Western passports, including a US one.
