Hoda Muthana said she 'regrets every single thing' done by ISIS, which she joined in 2014 after embracing extremist ideology while living with her family in Alabama

Daily Mail. A federal judge has ruled that a woman born in Hackensack, New Jersey who left to join ISIS is not an American citizen, and has no right to return to the U.S. 

Judge Reggie Walton ruled on Wednesday that there is sufficient evidence that Hoda Muthana, 25, was born while her father, a one-time Yemeni representative to the U.N., had diplomatic status in the U.S., according to Buzzfeed News.

Under longstanding federal regulation, the children of diplomats are not eligible for citizenship when they are born in America, because they are not subject to U.S. jurisdiction as specified in the 14th Amendment to the Constitution.
