Musical genius, British national treasure, humanitarian and peace activist John Lennon’s green card from July 1976. He fought deportation for four years because he believed in the American dream. He believed his deportation charges to be an abuse of the law and stemmed from his outspoken stance against the Vietnam War and Nixon administration.
For more on the background of his story, here is a trailer for The U.S. vs. John Lennon. His immigration file from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is available online, but I feel funny posting the link because it seems like an invasion of privacy – from me, anyway.
