ISIS, a well known Islamic Terrorist group, not only in the middle east but has spread to America. A young girl goes from American back to Syria, marries a radical from ISIS and now wants to return to the US.
What Makes You A US Citizen?
People typically acquire US citizenship through their parents or birth. You can do this in 3 ways:
- By being born in the United States or one of its territories. This is called the “birthright citizenship” and is protected by the 14th amendment in the US Constitution.
- By being born to parents who are US citizens.
- You may be a citizen if one or both parents have been naturalized.
Naturalization is the legal process through which a foreign citizen or a national can become a US citizen. In order to go through with this process, you need to meet certain criteria.
Although this ISIS bride is claiming she is a US citizen, the United States have said she is not. Why? Because her father, when they lived in the US was a Yemeni Diplomat, not a United States Citizen.
ISIS, the Islamic State, that not only has settled in the middle east but has spread their views to other countries. Founded in 1999, it is a militant group, which gained global prominence when it drove the Iraqi Government forces out of major cities in 2014.
The group has been claimed as a terrorist organization by the United Nations. Anyone associated with this group would presumably, also be called a terrorist and a threat to national security. ISIS have taken horrific videos of be-headings of journalists, aid workers and others and posted them on the internet for the World to see.
This ISIS bride, returned from the US to Syria and married not one, not two but three ISIS men and had a child. When asked why she left the US and why she declared she hated the US, she responded with “no comment”.
The US Government have said that she is not a citizen. Since she left to join ISIS, she herself is considered a terrorist and will not be allowed back on US soil. Many of the families in Syria are trying to flee from ISIS. The biggest question everyone is asking is who can we trust? How can we let a bride into the country not knowing if she is saying what the government wants to hear.
