You May Say He's a DREAMer: John Lennon's Immigration Case
"In many ways, Leon Wildes wrote the ballad of John Lennon and Yoko Ono and the undocumented immigrant in America. The New York immigration attorney represented Lennon and Ono in their blockbuster immigration trial throughout the 1970s. He helped the rock star successfully fight deportation. And through Wildes, Lennon's situation exposed the standards upon which President Obama's administration has built its Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which allows young undocumented immigrants who've grown up in the United States to stay in the country." - Katelyn Polantz, Dec. 14, 2012.
