  • An Alabama woman who fled to join the Islamic State terrorist group is begging to come home to the United States after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected her appeal request several months ago.
  • Her citizenship status has been questioned, resulting in her being unable to be legally admitted back into the country.
  • In an interview from a detention camp in Syria where she’s being held by U.S.-allied Kurdish forces, Hoda Muthana claims she was brainwashed by online traffickers into joining the group in 2014.
  • “I’ve always said if I need to sit in prison, and do my time, I will do it. I as well am a victim of ISIS. I’m hoping my government looks at me as someone young at the time and naive,” she said.
