IS bride loses first stage of legal fight over her citizenship

IS bride Shamima Begum has lost the first stage of a legal challenge against the decision to revoke her British citizenship. Begum, an east London schoolgirl, travelled to Syria to join Islamic State in 2015. She was discovered in a Syrian refugee camp last February after which she was stripped of her British citizenship. Her lawyers argue revoking it was unlawful because it has left her stateless

https://blogs.lse.ac.uk/wps/2019/11/20/womens-violence-and-the-law-in-consideration-of-shamima-begum/ This poor girl has been through enough! Has anyone in the comments even cared enough to read what this young mother has been through? She was tricked as a young teen and made a terrible mistake. She was passed off to man after man treated like some sort of property of the IS. She had to escape as though she were a prisoner. She is most certainly a refugee and to turn her away now and leave her stateless is a terrible crime against humanity. She regrets the choice to leave obviously she has returned and begged forgiveness for her mistake and you beasts call for her death........ Shameful! What if it was your daughter that made this fateful mistake and was lured in with the promise of a perfect life only to be beaten and subjugated to slavery? Would you still turn her away or call for execution?
