Prince Harry’s declarations regarding the use of illicit substances when he was younger might get the U.S. government in legal trouble. After Harry confessed to consuming drugs in his memoir, several conservative organizations questioned the way his immigration process was handled and now the government will have to appear in court because of it.
The Heritage Foundation filed a complaint against the Department of Homeland Security and demanded that they publish Prince Harry’s immigration file. If the Duke of Sussex really used illegal substances when he was a teenager, he should have disclosed that information to the authorities during his visa application process and the residency permit should have been denied.
The court hearings in the case against the DHS will begin on June 6 in a federal court in Washington D.C. Nile Gardiner, director of the Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom, supported the case on Twitter and said that the American people deserve to know all the details of what happened:
“Given his extensive drug use admissions, normally disqualifying for entry into the United States, the American people deserve answers to the serious questions raised by the evidence. Did DHS in fact look the other way, play favorites, or fail to appropriately respond to any potential false statements by Prince Harry?”
Although Prince Harry is not directly involved in the case yet, some people think that the final verdict could have serious repercussions on his current residency status. Despite this, he has not addressed the allegations as of today and has continued to live a normal life with his family in California.
