The Immigration and Nationality Act, or INA, was created in 1952. The McCarran-Walter Bill of 1952 collected and codified many existing provisions and reorganized the structure of immigration law. Arizona’s new law does not actually do anything new, yet the uproar around the nation is that the law is anti-Mexican and will exacerbate racial profiling for other minorities, particularly Blacks. Is the Arizona law racist? Should Blacks oppose it in solidarity with Hispanics? Is there really any Black/Brown unity? This show will discuss racial profiling, the legal issues of illegal immigration, states’ rights and what Black people’s position on Arizona’s law should be. Guests: James Stevens and Malik Ali, from Justice Inc., a Non-Profit National Civil Rights Organization dedicated to educating young people about civil and criminal law, and Craig Cunningham, an attorney who has practiced in the areas of Criminal Defense and Constitutional Law for more than 15 years. Co-hosts Trey Whitaker and Demetria Richardson.
