Getting engaged in conversations while you are drunk can land you in a lot of trouble. Sending an email while you are drunk can be even worse. And the worst part comes when it is being sent to the wrong person! A teenager from the UK has been given an alleged lifetime ban from entering the United States, courtesy the email sent by him in drunken state.
The New York Daily News has reported that the email was directed towards President Obama and the teenager now says that he does not remember a single word written in his email to the White House.
The contents were applauded “threatening.” The officials from Britain marked their visit to his house, took his photo and informed him of his ban to go to the United States for lifetime.
It is not just about sending an unwanted or wrong email. Rather, there are 60 reasons which are listed, the ones which can bar the entry of an individual from visiting the country for a lifetime. The same has been confirmed by the United States Department of Homeland Security. These reasons can be linked with health related issues, visa violations, crime or violating the immigration laws.
The question which rises here is that had it been a British national, would he also been given the same banishment like any other overseas applicants (in this case, British national)?
