    One thought on “We Are All Suspects Now: Untold Stories from Immigrant Communities After 9/11”

    1. I had to read this for school but I would read it again Very heartwrenching, inspirational and all around something that anyone can feel passionate about I think it is amazing that things can go on like the detention centers described in the book, because from past experiences with things like the concentration camps during WWII and the camps for the Japanese Americans This book was cathartic and very hard to forget.

    2. Out of tragedy, the worst thing you can lose is humanity Mayron PayesTram Nguyen, one of the top real journalists in the country among the ranks of Amy Goodman and Greg Palast, outlines in the most factual and non sensationalistic manner the abuses and discrimination targeted at immigrants after 9 11 It is astounding how far individuals and entire countries will go to avoid grief and confrontation with the real problems at hand which, of course, are not immigrants This book is easy to read and p [...]

    3. 3.5 StarsI had to read this book for my American Studies class about The United States since September 11 This was a really well put together book I really liked the different perspectives that are shown that all tie into how 9 11 drastically changed the lives of both immigrants and POC in the US Many of the families that were targeted were just seeking asylum and refugee, searching for the American Dream This book really showcased that that American Dream was not their reality.This was a quick [...]

    4. One of the best non fiction books I have read this year so far I would say a must read for anyone even slightly curious about human right The so called America dream is not so dreamy, if you are a non white, immigrant and Muslim I feel heartbroken for all the families affected Even though I am trying to understand where the US was coming from after 9 11 with all these policies, the impact is unacceptable and what worst, not even targeting the people that should be targeted Broken families, lost [...]

    5. A good book of immigrants in the US, post 9 11, events that have affected them despite of different religions, faiths, races, professions, etc Profiling mostly target Arabs and Muslims, or Arab looking people with Muslim sounding names, but other immigrants from Africa, Latin America, Asia China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Korea were also affected Nguyen, a Vietnami researcher, compiled some interesting stories here.

    6. Read this for a sociology class It has some sad first hand accounts of the problems of profiling and the absurd reaction to 9 11 and it s affect on people perceived as muslims and therefore possible terrorists Definitely worth a read.

    7. Untold stories from immigrant communities in the US following 9 11 The focus of this book is the racial impact of post 9 11 policies on immigrants and communities of color An excellent book.

    8. This is a really great book by Nguyen the editor of Colorlines about the post 9.11 nastiness I love how it cuts across the different immigrant communities.

    9. An excellent review of the reality of 21st century America for immigrants of all types Clear evidence of American systems of class and caste.
