According to WBRC, Muthana became radicalized in Nov. 2014 and traveled to Syria to join ISIS.  Muthana said she made the wrong decision and wants to be allowed back into the U.S. with her son.

In a statement on Wednesday, Pompeo said that Muthana does not have a United States Passport and will not be allowed into the U.S.

Also on Wednesday, President Trump tweeted that the decision had been his.
