Middle Eastern Americans and Disabled Persons

Bainum, Brooke; Smith, Raymond Arthur

This issue brief will focus on the ways in which U.S. policy towards disabled persons both intersects and comes into conflict with U.S. policy towards Middle-Eastern Americans. It will additionally explore the political representation and participation, socio-economic status and discrimination against these two minority groups, highlighting the disparity between U.S. policy and public U.S. sentiment and actual treatment of the disabled and Middle-Eastern Americans.
