Hate Crimes, Civil Rights and the USA Patriot Act

Jagan R. Lingamneni, Governors State University

This presentation will address the recent explosion of hate crimes against some South Asian and Middle Eastern ethnic minorities in the context of the post 9/11/2001 terrorist attacks. An attempt is also made to examine the violation of civil rights for these minorities in the US, the ramifications of the USA PATRIOT ACT, and their due process consequences in our administration of justice.
