FILE - In this April 18, 1972, file photo, John Lennon and his wife, Yoko Ono, leave a U.S. Immigration hearing in New York City. The argument over President Barack Obama’s legal authority to defer deportations begins 42 years ago with a bit of hashish, a dogged lawyer and, yes, John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Lennon was facing deportation from a Nixon administration eager to disrupt the ex-Beatle’s planned concert tour and voter registration drive. The case hinged on Lennon’s 1968 conviction for possession of cannabis resin in London. Lennon ultimately succeeded. The case’s legacy is an integral part of the legal foundation Obama relied on in 2012 to set up a program that has deferred the deportation of more than 580,000 immigrants who entered the country illegally as children.

Steve McGlinchey poses in Farmington Hills, Mich., Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014. A new study has found that, while Americans are mistrustful of each other and institutions -- from government to corporations and the media -- young people are among the least likely age group to have confidence in those institutions, especially since the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. McGlinchey, 21, is among them, and is particularly skeptical of the government and corporate America. "I do not trust the government as far as I can throw a car," he says. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya)

FILE - In this March 2, 2014 file photo, Jennifer Lawrence arrives at the Oscarsat the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. As the celebrity photo-hacking scandal has made clear, privacy isn't what it used to be. Whether famous or seemingly anonymous, people from all walks of life put all sorts of things online or into cloud-based storage systems, from vital financial information to the occasional nude photo. Periodic cases of hacking fuel outrage, but there's no retreat from digital engagement or any imminent promise of guaranteed privacy. (Photo by Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP)
