GA. ACLU Alleges Racial Profiling Of Hispanics In New Report

 The ACLU of Georgia has released a report about racial profiling in Gwinnett County, Georgia. Called The Persistence of Racial Profiling in Gwinnett: Time for Accountability, Transparency, and an End to 287(g) (PDF), the report discusses racial profiling in that county before and after the implementation of a 287(g) agreement, which allows local law enforcement to partner with the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to enforce federal immigration law.

The report was released on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. This day commemorates the date in 1960 when more than 70 peaceful anti-apartheid demonstrators were murdered by government forces in Sharpeville, South Africa. The annual observance of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination celebrates the progress made over the years, but also provides a sobering reminder of the obstacles to racial justice worldwide.

In the United States, racial profiling remains a pervasive and serious problemRacial profiling occurs when police target people for interrogations, searches and detentions based not on evidence of criminal activity, but on individuals’ perceived or actual race, ethnicity, nationality or religion.
