Without Due Process

Published by at 1:24 pm under Audio,Culture

In 1982–1983, when Haitian “boat people” were surviving treacherous seas only to be incarcerated when they reached U.S. shores, Adi Gevins and I produced a documentary* about then-current U.S. immigration policy, and the parallels to the World War II internment of Japanese-Americans. In 1982, it was the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS); now, it’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The boat people are now children separated from their parents at the southern border. It is sobering that, thirty-five years later, this program is still so relevant.

Thanks to Shawn Dellis at Pacifica Radio Archives for making this .mp3 file for me, so I could upload it here. If you want a CD, you can get it here: https://www.pacificaradioarchives.org/recording/pz004714?nns=without%2Bdue%2Bprocess

*The program is Without Due Process: Prejudice in the Application of Constitutional Rights to Citizens and Non-Citizens, produced with Michael Yoshida. It was program 14 of 15 in the series that was Adi’s brainchild:  The Bill of Rights Radio Education Project series.
