John Lennon’s immigration lawyer, Leon Wildes, discusses his new book, John Lennon vs. the U.S.A. Wildes’ arguments not only saved Lennon from deportation, but also paved the way for Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which shields 700,000 from deportation. Come learn about the Lennon case, the law, and this fascinating link to contemporary immigration debates. Michael Wildes, Leon’s son and law partner, and Eleanor Pelta, Tenement Museum Trustee and former president of the American Immigration Law Association, join the conversation.More info See more free New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
