Black Army officer suing Harrah’s New Orleans after being denied entry to casino Taylor Delandro and Adrienne Bankert, NewsNation Now · October 12, 2021 at 7:00 pm A Black servicewoman is suing a New Orleans casino after security officers refused to let her inside, claiming she was not the woman pictured in her military ID. U.S Army 2nd Lt. Deja Harrison and her family planned to celebrate her step-brother’s 21st birthday at Harrah’s Casino on Oct. 5. But before the celebration could begin, casino security told her she wasn’t allowed to enter the facility with the IDs she provided. Harrison said the employee checking her ID questioned the validity of it. “I mean, not only was it humiliating, but I was just shocked and appalled that somebody would say I’m actually not Army and that my ID was fake,” Harrison told NewsNation.
