"Rounding Up the Usual Suspects: the Patriot Act"

In the wake of September 11, 2001, Congress enacted anti-terrorist legislation known as the USA PATRIOT Act. Provisions of the Act are having profound effects on immigrants from Arab countries. This show examines the impact of the Patriot Act on the Middle Eastern community in San Diego. Legal experts and civil right activists analyze government policy and give their views on its purpose and consequences. Producers: John Odam & Ed Sweed (2003) (a bit outdated due to some names mentioned such as John Ashcroft who has been replaced by Alberto Gonzales- but nonetheless, this law is still in affect and in the years since this documentary, been used in the SAME manner)
