Gee, that's too damn bad:

From the story:

The UK on Tuesday revoked the citizenship of the British teenager who ran off to join ISIS in 2015 and begged to be allowed home last week for the sake of her baby, according to a report. The British Home Office broke the news in a letter sent to the family of 19-year-old Shamima Begum and obtained by ITV News.

“Please find enclosed papers that relate to a decision taken by the Home Secretary, to deprive your daughter, Shamima Begum, of her British citizenship,” the letter reads. “In light of the circumstances of your daughter, the notice of the Home Secretary’s decision has been served of file today (19th February), and the order removing her British citizenship has subsequently been made.”

The letter goes on to say that Begum has the right to appeal the decision. Her family’s lawyer, Tasnime Akunjee, said his clients were “disappointed” by the government’s decision and were “considering all legal avenues to challenge the decision.”

Let's hope the Brits stand fast. And that so do we on our "Alabama" ISIS bride:

An Alabama woman who reportedly posted a tweet encouraging Americans to kill themselves -- after being “brainwashed” into joining ISIS years ago -- is now begging for officials to let her back into the U.S.

The plea from Hoda Muthana, 24, comes following her recent escape from ISIS and capture by Kurdish forces. She is being held in a refugee camp in northeast Syria and told The Guardian in an interview that her last four years with the terrorist group have been a traumatizing experience where “we starved and we literally ate grass."

“I would tell them please forgive me for being so ignorant, and I was really young and ignorant and I was 19 when I decided to leave,” she told the newspaper when asked if she had a message for American officials.

Good luck with that.
