Middle Eastern Americans and Criminal Justice

Mechbal, Sirine; Smith, Raymond Arthur

This brief will explore the relationships between Middle-Eastern Americans and US criminal justice by focusing essentially on the way anti-terrorist and immigration legislation have affected this group since 9/11, and how they responded to it. Particular attention will be given to Arab and Muslim Americans, who were especially impacted by these policies.
