Defending the Unpopular Immigrant

Bill Ong Hing

We are a nation of immigrants; yet we are also a nation that goes through evil cycles of anti-immigrant fervor.

As the nation reeled from the September 11 attacks, Americans regrouped in incredible demonstrations of unity and patriotism.  But an ugly side to that patriotism also emerged, targeting immigrant communities of Arab Americans, Muslims, Sikhs, and Pakistani Americans.
