WILDES & WEINBERG, P.C., PARTNERS LEON AND MICHAEL WILDES WERE FEATURED PANELISTS AT THE 2015 AMERICAN IMMIGRATION LAWYERS ASSOCIATION (AILA) CONFERENCE WHICH WAS HELD IN MARYLAND. ATTENDEES OF THE PANEL HEARD FIRST HAND HOW LEON WILDES’ HANDLING OF THE JOHN LENNON IMMIGRATION CASE SET THE STAGE FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA’S LANDMARK DACA AND DAPA IMMIGRATION REMEDIES.
Wildes & Weinberg, P.C. Founding Partner Leon Wildes is best known for his successful representation of John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
Between 1972 and 1976, Leon Wildes represented Lennon and Ono in their struggle to remain in the United States, despite the concerted attempts for the Nixon Administration to deport them.
The case (which included bringing four separate Federal lawsuits) not only resulted in John and Yoko getting their green cards and being able to remain in the United States, but it also led to substantial changes in immigration law and brought to light secretive government practices and undue political influence, and has resulted in greater transparency in the U.S. immigration system.
Attendees of the panel were provided with a first hand account of Leon Wildes successful representation of the former Beatle. In addition, also featured on the panel was Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia, Penn State Law Professor as well as author of Beyond Deportation: The Role of Prosecutorial Discretion in Immigration Cases. This book offers a comprehensive examination into the history, theory, and application of prosecutorial discretion in immigration law, and traces the roots of this action back to the 1970s Lennon case.
