Well, isn't she a cocky little thing:

An American-born ISIS bride told NBC News on Friday that she anticipates "no problem" in returning to the U.S. despite the Trump administration's insistence that she won't be allowed into the country. Hoda Muthana, 24, left the U.S. to join the Islamic State in Syria in 2014.

She is now staying in a refugee camp with her 18-month-old son after fleeing the remnants of the caliphate. President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he told Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to refuse her entry. Pompeo told NBC's "Today" on Thursday that Muthana is not a citizen and will not be admitted to the country.

Details, details. What really matters here is that she is Muslim and female and therefore has a right to do anything she wants.

Muthana, who was born in New Jersey and lived in Alabama, and her family are now suing the Trump administration in an effort to allow her to return. "I know in fact that I was a citizen," she told NBC News. "When I tried filing for a passport it was very easy. It came in 10 days. So, I thought I didn’t have a problem, and I’m sure there is no problem and I know my lawyer hopefully is working on it and he will win the case.”

When asked what she expects will happen if she is allowed to return to the U.S., Muthana replied, "Of course I’ll be given jail time."

What a horrid little creature. This is why the "birthright citizenship" issue simply must be settled as soon as possible. Any clear-eyed reading of the 14th amendment understands it was mean to apply to the freed slaves, not to the offspring of illegal immigrants or children of diplomats, which Muthana was.
