Prince Harry ‘could be deported’ from US by Republican president amid visa application fury
GB News – Prince Harry could be “swiftly removed from the United States” by a Republican president if the Duke has lied on his visa application about his drug use, the director of a think tank has claimed.
It comes after Harry publicly admitted to taking multiple drugs, including cocaine, cannabis and magic mushrooms in his memoir, Spare.
The revelations led to the right-wing think tank The Heritage Foundation calling for his visa application to be made public for greater clarity on what the royal declared.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has kept them under wraps but Florida representative Greg Steube wants the laws to be tightened to avoid a repeat as he criticised Joe Biden’s record on immigration.

Steube is introducing the Substance and Possession Abuse Restrictions for Entrance (SPARE) Act that would permanently ban foreign nationals from the USA if they knowingly provided false information on their visa applications regarding controlled substance use.
Speaking on GB News, Nile Gardiner, director of The Heritage Foundation said: “I think firstly with regard to the Biden administration, they will do all they can to try and stop the release of Harry’s records.
“Ultimately it will be decided by by federal judge, but if those records are released and if it is found that Prince Harry has lied on his application, there will be tremendous public pressure for Harry to be deported from the United States.
“Now, if you have a Republican president in place, you can be sure that a Republican leader would strictly enforce US immigration laws.
“And if Harry has broken those laws by lying on his application, I’m in no doubt that a Republican president would swiftly remove him from the United States.”
Sources close to the Prince have indicated to the Telegraph that he was truthful on his visa application, suggesting that he disclosed his drug use.
The Duke of Sussex moved to the US in 2020 alongside his wife Meghan Markle.
People who emigrate to America are normally given a three-year visa, meaning Harry will need to apply for a new visa, or a Green Card, or citizenship, this year.

An application for a new visa could lead to further scrutiny of the Duke of Sussex’s drug use.
US immigration law has harsh penalties for lying to immigration officials, including deportation and being barred from applying for citizenship.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has so far refused to release immigration records regarding the Duke of Sussex.
