Racial Profiling, Domestic Security, and Human Rights in the United States

RACIAL PROFILING PUTS AMERICA AT RISK

A new Amnesty International report demonstrates that racial profiling by law enforcement has expanded in the government's war on terror and has affected an estimated one of every nine individuals in the United States. The 50-page report, Threat and Humiliation: Racial Profiling, Domestic Security, and Human Rights in the United States, asserts that law enforcement's use of race, religion, country of origin, and ethnic or religious appearance as a proxy for criminal suspicion undermines national security.

"Racial profiling blinds law enforcement to real criminal threats and creates a hole in the national security net large enough to drive a truck through," said Curt Goering, Senior Deputy Executive Director of AIUSA.

"The widespread practice of racial profiling diminishes confidence in the police and makes individuals reluctant to call 911 or cooperate with law enforcement," he added.

Along with the release of this report, Amnesty International is launching a public education campaign designed to generate support for a comprehensive federal law banning race-focused law enforcement practices. The End Racial Profiling Act of 2004 (H.R. 3847 and S 2132) has 140 bipartisan cosponsors.
