Deeper Digs in Rock: John Lennon vs. the USA

Dec. 8, 2016

Christian is joined by noted New York immigration attorney Leon Wildes, who tells the incredible story of this landmark case - John Lennon vs. The U.S.A. that set up a battle of wills between John Lennon, Yoko Ono, and President Richard Nixon.

Although Wildes did not even know who John Lennon and Yoko Ono were when he was originally retained by them, he developed a close relationship with them both during the eventual five-year period while he represented them and thereafter. 

The attempted deportation of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, which began in 1972, has stunning relevance as immigration is a divisive issue in today's political climate. No one understands this better than Leon Wildes, the immigration attorney who represented the Lennons and now shares the story in this fascinating book.
