(CBS News) A woman who left Alabama at the age of 19 to join ISIS on her own free will wants to return home, her ability to return to the US has been the subject of debate.

Hoda Muthana, now age 24, has insisted that she has the right to return to the U.S. However, Trump's administration does not consider her a U.S. citizen.

According to CBS News, D.C. federal court will hear Muthana's case Monday, March 11.

CBS News correspondent Charlie D'Agata interviewed Muthana and asked questions regarding what she would say to Mr. Trump if she had the chance.

"I would tell him to study the legal system, because apparently I am allowed back. I have papers. I have citizenship," Muthana says in the interview.

In the interview, Muthana continues to tell CBS News that she would be willing to go to jail if that is what it would take to make it back to America.
