Bob Marley's U.S. Immigration File


LexisNexis Immigration Law brought to my attention an immigration gem -- Bob Marley's U.S. Immigration File.  the file is the subject of this article by Claudia Gardner in DanceHallMag.

"Reggae legend Bob Marley was ordered by United States Immigration officials, to leave the country or be deported, on two occasions, records dating back to 1966 have revealed. The documents, totaling 95 pages, which were requested by journalist and social justice activist Murv Glass a month after Bob died in 1981 under the Freedom of Information Act, have been online from as far back as August 2021."

Check out the article for documents in Marley's Immigration and Naturalization Service file.
