Southern PovertyLawCenter to Release Report Examining Latino Discrimination, Abuse in the South


Report to be Released Tuesday, April 21


Montgomery, Ala. – On Tuesday, April 21, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) will release a report that examines the experience of Latino immigrants in the South. The report finds that low-income Latinos are routinely the targets of wage theft, racial profiling and other abuses driven by an anti-immigrant climate that affects all Latinos regardless of immigration status. It also offers recommendations for reform.


The report is based on a survey of 500 low-income Latinos – including legal residents, undocumented immigrants and U.S. citizens – at five locations in the South. These locations included Nashville, Charlotte, New Orleans, rural southern Georgia and several towns and cities in northern Alabama.


WHO:             Richard Cohen, President, Southern PovertyLawCenter                     

                        Mary Bauer, Director, SPLC’s Immigrant Justice Project and report author                  

WHAT:           Telephone news conference to discuss a new report – Under Siege: Life for Low-Income Latinos in the South


WHEN:           11:30 a.m. ET, Tuesday, April 21


WHERE:        1-866-910-4857

                        PASSCODE– 829960
