Does the PATRIOT Act Unfairly Target Minority and Immigrant Communities?

  • Yes it does.

    The PATRIOT Act does unfairly target minority and immigrant communities. It allows law enforcement and other officials to target someone based only on their race. It is using terrorism as an excuse to use racial profiling on innocent citizens and groups. People are innocent until proven guilty and should not be profiled based on their race.

  • No, it unfairly targets everyone.

    No, the PATRIOT act does not unfairly target minority and immigrant communities, because it unfairly targets everyone, by greatly expanding federal powers. The legislature jumped on people's fears after September 11, in order to impose broad, sweeping laws that take away freedoms. To their credit, the legislature takes them away from everyone, not just any one particular race.
