Trump Suggests Potential Deportation for Prince Harry

During an interview with Nigel Farage of GB News on Tuesday, March 19, former President Donald Trump claimed that Prince Harry might risk deportation from the United States if Trump regained the presidency.

“If he lied, they’ll have to take appropriate action,” Trump stated, alluding to Prince Harry’s visa application process.

These remarks by Trump have reignited discussions about Prince Harry’s immigration status, particularly in relation to his self-confessed drug use, as revealed in his memoir “Spare.”

Trump has frequently disapproved of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to step back from their royal duties and move to the U.S., often seeing that as a perceived lack of respect for Queen Elizabeth II. He has suggested in public statements that any irregularities in Harry’s visa application, especially those linked to his past drug use, could put his immigration status at risk.

The Heritage Foundation, a right-leaning think tank, has queried the transparency of Harry’s immigration proceedings. Via a Freedom of Information Act request, the organization filed a lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) last year, seeking access to Harry’s immigration documents. They argued that his self-admitted drug use might affect his immigration status. However, these documents have been withheld by the Biden administration, citing privacy concerns.

Legal experts point out that Trump’s comments may be more politically motivated than based on clear legal stipulations. They highlight that past drug use does not automatically disqualify someone from obtaining a U.S. visa. Each application is considered individually, with honesty and context being key factors.

Understanding the legal framework is vital in light of the implications of Trump’s comments on deportation. U.S. visa applications do include questions about illegal drug use, and providing false information can lead to severe penalties. However, the U.S. immigration system allows for certain waivers and considerations, especially if the applicant demonstrates rehabilitation or the drug use is minimal.

Prince Harry has shown no interest in pursuing U.S. citizenship at this time. His legal team asserts that his book disclosures do not amount to formal admissions of drug use in a legal sense, thereby dismissing their potential impact on his visa status.

Earlier this month, a federal judge ruled that the Department of Homeland Security must release Harry’s visa documents for judicial review. The goal is to determine whether these records should be made publicly available. On Sunday, March 17, the department’s lawyers requested additional time to locate the files.
