Islamist Group CAIR Now Advocating for ISIS Bride Who is Barred From the US, Providing Free Legal Assistance
On Wednesday, President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the woman who left Alabama to join ISIS and now wants to return to the United States is not an American citizen and therefore cannot return to the nation.
Now, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), is supporting her and providing her with a pro bono attorney.
“I have instructed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and he fully agrees, not to allow Hoda Muthana back into the Country!” President Trump tweeted on Wednesday.

On Wednesday evening, Jordan Schachtel from Conservative Review noted that CAIR is “not just simply advocating for ISIS devotee Hoda Muthana, they are also providing her a pro bono attorney. Hassan Shilby, an Islamist himself, is the director of CAIR’s Florida chapter and a national spokesperson for the org.”

The mainstream media has been attempting to paint a “heartbreaking” and sympathetic portrait of Muthana, despite the fact that she married four ISIS fighters in Syria. Muthana also infamously used social media to call for Americans to come to the self-proclaimed Caliphate and join the fight with ISIS.
Rep. Ilhan Omar is listed as the featured speaker at CAIR’s 4th Annual Valley Banquet in California on March 23. Omar will be sharing the stage with Shibly, who is representing Muthana, and believes that Hezbollah and Hamas are not terrorist organizations. He also openly despises gay people.

The director of CAIR-Los Angeles is Hussam Ayloush, who suggested that the US is “partly responsible” for the San Bernardino terrorist attacks. This seems to be a sentiment Omar could relate to, as she previously made excuses for a 2013 terrorist attack, claiming the attack which left 71 people dead and over 200 wounded was “a reaction” to “our involvement in other people’s affairs.”
