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.

Not with an iron fist, but with nuclear words. Upon scripted words of unification, the American president delivers an ultimatum for the citizens of the United States of America. Remain loyal to The Great Experiment that is America or relocate to Texas and Louisiana, former states that President Barry Bigly forced to secede from the Union. The New Sovereign Nation of Texiana begins as a sanctuary for those who predicted President Bigly's tyrannical rule, only to become a desolate wasteland shut off from the rest of the world by a massive border wall. As the Texianans struggle to adjust to their new lifestyles, the American president has other plans to keep their lack of loyalty at bay; raining down deadly chemicals upon the Texianans while preaching propaganda across the airwaves, which unknowingly creates a horde of victims within the wall's borders. Not willing to stand by as the American president methodically eradicates all that do not believe in his ideals for the next evolution of the United States, three young adults join forces to rise up and restore peace and true unity once again. 1.

A damning confrontation between the American dream and the reality of undocumented children seeking a new life in the US. Structured around the 40 questions Luiselli translates and asks undocumented Latin American children facing deportation, Tell Me How It Ends (an expansion of her 2016 Freeman's essay of the same name) humanizes these young migrants and highlights the contradiction between the idea of America as a fiction for immigrants and the reality of racism and fear - both here and back home. 1.

Sinti und Roma berichten über Verfolgung, Internierung, Flucht, Deportation und Vernichtung während der Zeit des Nationalsozialismus. Die Berichte und Aussagen von Sinti und Roma, der wenigen, die Verfolgung, Internierung, Deportation und Vernichtung überlebt haben, dokumentieren den Völkermord, der lange Zeit bestritten wurde und von manchen immer noch geleugnet wird. Ihre Aussagen tragen dazu bei, dass die Opfer in der Erinnerung ihrer Angehörigen weiterleben. Sie offenbaren den Nachkommen, was die Überlebenden selbst erlitten und worüber sie teilweise jahrzehntelang geschwiegen haben. Sie ermöglichen uns, den Nachkommen derer, die damals abseits oder auf der Seite der Täter gestanden haben, diese Epoche unserer Geschichte aus der Perspektive der Opfer zu erleben. Das Hörbuch ist in acht Kapitel unterteilt: Festsetzung bei Beginn des Zweiten Weltkrieges; Lebenssituation nach der Festsetzung; Die Mai-Deportationen 1940; Verschärfte Ausgrenzung in der Schule, bei der Ausbildung und im Beruf; Entlassungen aus der Wehrmacht; Verhaftung ... oder Flucht; Deportationen nach Auschwitz-Birkenau; "Das wird man nie los, sowas!" 1.
