Researched by the DataCenter for Homies Unidos
Since the September 11th attacks on the New York World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the U.S. government has embarked on a sweeping crack down on non-citizens living in the U.S. This onslaught on the civil rights and liberties of immigrant populations has focused mainly on Arabs and South Asians. But as laws and regulations have tightened, all immigrant groups have been targeted. This fact sheet reviews some of the changes in the law and some data connected to the on-going campaign of repression against undocumented immigrants and the non-citizen population in general.
