Family of ISIS Bride Sue Trump

Free Case Evaluation

Family of ISIS Bride Sue TrumpThe father of Hoda Muthana, who traveled from Alabama to marry an Islamic State fighter, has filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump’s administration in hopes of getting her and his 18-month-old grandson back into the United States.

Muthana joined ISIS in 2014 after she told her parents she was going to Atlanta, Georgia for a field trip connected with her business studies at the University of Alabama Birmingham. However, she dropped out of college and used her tuition reimbursement to buy a ticket to Turkey. From Turkey, she traveled to Syria, where she married twice. Both of the ISIS fighters she married were later killed in combat.

When Muthana was in Syria, she used her social media accounts to call for death of Americans.

“Go on drive-bys and spill all of their blood, or rent a big truck and drive all over them. Veterans, Patriot, Memorial etc Day parades… Kill them,” she wrote in a now suspended Twitter account.

Muthana has since apologized for her actions and claimed she was brainwashed into going to Syria. If she is allowed to return to the United States, she has vowed to help de-radicalize other Americans.

“I know in fact that I was a citizen,” Muthana told NBC News. “I prefer America to anywhere else,” she said, adding that if she returns, “Of course, I will be given jail time.”

The Trump administration, however, has decided that New Jersey born Muthana never qualified for U.S. citizenship because her father was a diplomat at the time of her birth.

The Immigration and Nationality Act states that a person born in the U.S. to a foreign diplomat isn’t subject to U.S. law and isn’t automatically a U.S. citizen at birth.

However, lawyers for the woman’s father, Ahmed Ali Muthana, said that Trump are misinformed and that Muthana was born in the U.S. after her father left diplomatic service.

The plaintiffs also cited the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution – “all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and the State wherein they reside” – that only the courts can decide whether a diplomat and/or family members are immune from this jurisdiction, not a “unilateral determination by the government.”

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!
