Transcript for Trump: US woman who joined Islamic State not allowed back
Now we want to move shift gears limit to that big question of what happened to that 24 Alabama 24 year old I should say Alabama woman who spent four years. With prices president truck now says she will not be allowed back in the US James long and spoke to her earlier this week. He's live in Syria for us and James. Not a president company says she can't come back here what happens next. That's the big crescent that. And the issues is for many of these women too are now leaving this local Islamic state. Whether they go if the countries when they came from have said they don't want them back its capital to the case in spite of them look I'm not. I'm another woman ceemea but go in nineteen year old two from the U United Kingdom. Also been told she called me about that. These two women do how. The possibility of going to. Comes is when F Tommy's originated from not as they possibilities. Assuming the Macomb for example there was a question perhaps. She has had parents have Bangladeshi ancestry says the possibilities you guys Bangladesh. The Bangladesh is now sad she cannot come that says she is out president not the county parents area. Statements. Gospel autumn of Salmonella see how the Yemeni origin father was a Yemeni diplomat at the United States and she was bulls the question is could she go that. But Diana gonna take a bullet comes on us that a anything less than Syria Yemen is probably what side. Could she really go to Yemen tell the child to his hit to his father with a two dizzy and fight them. So he is half Yemeni off Sheen is in the states could see apply for asylum into museum because that's the other son who could claim to museum had its. This isn't in its high any new area all of of the war I reckon I mean for countries to basically gotten their citizens from coming high and this is going to be it's a very very complex. Situation going forward. The United States is arguing that put him up on not was never a US citizen in the first place and that say that because like I say a father with the US diplomat. She was born a United States she should never have been given a possible. Now the Tommy lawyer has said about it in the case that actually he stopped being a diplomat just full months. Before she was born and so she was allowed to have a possible and she did travel a to Syria all not US possible making full US citizen. So do it at the moment I think we're just gonna see a bucket full between if how many pounds. The American government but I think going to be there's a big appointed head. This might happen again and again and again and they might end up with a whole Lotta people sitting out here in the does that we've now at a guy. And and James that you talking about in all of this kind of stems from ices this seemingly. Slowly at least disbanding that US forces have been spending years on the ground their fighting. Now we're getting closer and closer to the deadline for their withdrawal so what are things like over there. With that deadline coming closer and closer. Well I think you'll of people here very nervous about US troops leaving this country and that's certainly what Donald Trump wants to see happen. But we've Hud now that US allies the United Kingdom and France who also have true tale. As said that they will knots. How bad troops replace the American ones if you like Donald Trump adults US allies to stick around in Syria and they said well that if your gonna leave Wigan a send up people hadn't saved. The Kurdish forces may have been big part of the effort to gates. I say is an have been working together with the Americans. They have been calling for some kind of forced an international force to remain in about fifteen hundred's also troops could it be that as some kind of international coalition that does remain. We'll have to wait and see but this is not a safe part of the world by any means people feel the united the United States. Can help make it safe and James Longley forces Syria James you stay safe thanks.
