One of the most bizarre incidents in Presidential history probably launched the so-called war on drugs. In December 1970, Elvis Presley, who was clad in a purple velvet suit, unexpectedly dropped in on President Richard Nixon at the White House. After presenting the somewhat befuddled Nixon with a Colt .45 pistol, Elvis insisted that he was an authority on "drug abuse and Communist brainwashing techniques," so he would be an excellent undercover marshal. Nixon politely refused the singer's assistance. Even now, the Elvis-Nixon photo remains iconic.

Deportation and immigration are among the most divisive issues of our time. There are strong feelings, and valid arguments, on each side.
