An El Paso woman described in court documents as a ‘Mexican-Muslim’ has admitted abducting another woman because her ‘lifestyle brought shame to the Muslim community.’

She told officials that members of the Muslim community came to her regarding issues of women’s rights, and that the woman she abducted ‘brought embarrassment to her family’.

Taha, a mother-of-two, broke into the woman’s home last Monday around 3am, armed with a pistol, and smuggled her across the border with the help of another female Hispanic accomplice.

She tried to close the woman’s mouth with duct tape, and fabricated a story that the woman’s family was in danger of being deported, and that her brother would no longer be able to receive medical treatment.

According to K Fox 14, the victim has been referred to as only ‘AFA’ in court documents.

Taha led the barefoot woman to a red Toyota minivan and instructed her to hide underneath the glove compartment of the front-seat passenger’s side.

‘AFA’ said she feared for her life during the drive, where Taha later blindfolded her led her to the trailer home of another Hispanic woman.

a had a pistol, which she told her was ‘for protection’.

The two then injected ‘AFA’ in her leg with a substance that made her ‘nauseous and sleepy’ and loaded her into a four-door truck, where she vomited.

Taha later admitted that the injection was a mixture of muscle relaxants and water, because the woman had been ‘too nervous’.

The victim, known as 'AFA', was later brought to the South Stanton Entry in El Paso by the members of the home she was dropped of at in Juarez by Taha

She was then dropped off with Taha’s accomplice at a home in Juarez, Mexico, where it seemed the inhabitants were unhappy with her presence – though they appeared to know ‘AFA’ and the woman transporting her.

One person in the home allowed ‘AFA’ to call her boyfriend. The next day, they took her to the Stanton Port of Entry, where a U.S. Border and Customs agent recognized her and brought her back to El Paso for treatment.

Taha was arrested in her home last Tuesday and has been charged with one count of kidnapping, which is punishable upon conviction by up to life in prison.

She is confined without bond to the El Paso County Jail until a Wednesday detention hearing before a federal magistrate. No attorney is listed for her on jail records.

She was reportedly denied bail because of her known connections to Mexico.

Her next court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday at 9pm.
