S.F. Immigrants Testify Against Racial Profiling

New America Now, Audio, Odette Keeley Posted: Apr 20, 2009

Editor's Note: Odette Keeley, news anchor for "Stories From The Ethnic Media" in NAM's radio program, "New America Now" on 91.7 FM KALW, talks to ethnic media professionals on stories in their news outlets and their take on the news of the day.

This week: San Francisco immigrants testify against racial profiling; and a Mexican town is under siege by drug violence.

Radio host Marcos Gutierrez, host and producer of Hecho en California or Made in California which airs daily on KIQI 1010 AM in San Francisco and KATD 990 AM in Sacramento, talks about the racial profiling cases that surprised him at the recent joint hearing by the S.F. Immigrant Rights Commission and S.F. Human Rights Commission; and Jos Luis Sierra, freelance journalist for Spanish-language media, and correspondent for New America Media from Juarez, Mexico says the town is one of the centers of joint operations of state, federal and military agents versus drug cartels, and has been dramatically transformed by the conflict.
