Let us all hope that she loses, this is what the government(s) should be doing, let them go, and more importantly, not let them back in.

A French mother took the government to court on Tuesday for failing to stop her teenage son leaving the country to join jihadists in Syria.
The boy, identified only as “B”, was only 16 when he left with three others from the town of Nice in southern France on December 27, 2013, giving no warning to his family.
A recent convert to Islam, the boy took a plane to Turkey before continuing by land to Syria. His mother, who spoke to him recently by phone, says he is still there.
The family’s lawyer, Samia Maktouf, said Turkey was “notorious as the route to enter Syria”.
“The police have committed a grave error … concerning this unaccompanied minor, who had a one-way ticket to Turkey with no baggage,” Maktouf said.
The mother is seeking damages of €110,000 ($120,000) from the government for her and her three other children.
