At a time when the hottest issue in US immigration law is the proposed action by President Obama to protect from deportation as many as five million illegals in the United States, the John Lennon case takes on special relevance, notwithstanding the passage of 40 years since he was placed in deportation proceedings. This is John and Yoko's incredible story, as told by the lawyer who fought in the front lines. In 1972 President Richard M. Nixon learned that John Lennon was visiting the United States. Nixon was told that Lennon's continued presence here could be catastrophic to his plan for reelection. Lennon, who had just made an appearance before an audience of 15,000 young fans at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, was rumored to be planning to join Jerry Rubin to lead a series of rock music rallies to "Dump Nixon" in anticipation of the 1972 Republican National Convention. The special significance of the 1972 convention was the fact that this would be the first national election in which the voting age was reduced from 21 to 18, adding 5 to 10 million new prospective voters. Nixon was not popular with this young group. Lennon was. Indeed, Senator Strom Thurmond had just written a Dear John letter to Nixon's attorney general, John Mitchell, suggesting that deporting Lennon quickly would be an "appropriate countermeasure". John Mitchell was the head of CREEP, the Committee to Reelect the President; his day job was as attorney general, in charge of deporting illegal aliens. Following the Watergate-style advice of his legal counsel, John Dean, Nixon decided to "use the available political machinery to screw our political enemies" and proceeded in earnest to deport Lennon and his artist wife, Yoko Ono. Lennon and Ono consulted Leon Wildes, an expert in the field of immigration law, about the reason for their visit: their efforts to locate and secure custody of Kyoko, Yoko's American eight-year-old child by a prior marriage.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Willi Jutzi (born September 2, 1913, buried July 8, 1942) was a German soldier during World War II stationed in Gardermoen in Nazi occupied Norway. In the summer of 1941 Jutzi deserted the German Army and fled from Norway over the border to neutral Sweden, where he hoped to receive asylum. However the Swedish Government returned all such deserters and political refugees to the German Nazi authorities.Facing deportation, Jutzi tried to escape the Swedish police when they stopped at the border to Norway. What happened next is a not clear. Almost a year after his escape Jutzi was found dead just a couple of hundred meters from where he had escaped. In the late 1950s, an investigation was made by the reporter D.V. Andersson from Arvika. He thought it was unclear how Jutzi had died and his conclusion was that he had been shot by the Swedish police who had been escorting him. No official explanation has ever been made and even today the case is unsolved.
