The ‘Rockin’ in the Free World’ singer, who is a Canadian and a fierce opponent of President Donald Trump, has reportedly pursued dual citizenship in order to vote in the 2020 election.
AceShowbiz -Canadian rock legend Neil Young has finally been granted American citizenship after the process was stalled by a marijuana use confession.
The “Rockin’ in the Free World” singer, who has been a fierce opponent of U.S. leader Donald Trump, became an American on Wednesday, January 22 following a swearing-in ceremony at the Los Angeles Convention Center, where he was joined by his wife, actress and activist Daryl Hannah, according to TMZ.
Reports suggest Neil decided to pursue dual citizenship so he could vote in the 2020 election, presumably against Trump.
His plan stalled after he confessed to past marijuana use on his application.
Such an admission is a red flag for immigration bosses, who were told by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions that applicants “involved in certain marijuana related activities may lack GMC (Good Moral Character) if found to have violated federal law.”
It’s pretty clear Young won’t be voting to extend President Trump’s time in office – he recently said, “I hope that people vote him out and I hope there’s somebody reasonable to put back in there when they get rid of him.”
