Abstract: Only minutes after planes crashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon,a wave of hate violence swept the country, with immigrants the main victims of “retaliation.” Since the first moments after the tragic events of September 11, 2001, immigrant and refugee communities have become the frontline victims of a new war. In the Bush Administration’s war against terrorism,immigrants and refugees have once again become “enemy aliens.” “In this new war,” declared Attorney General John Ashcroft,“our enemy’s platoons infiltrate our borders…their tactics rely on evading recognition at the border and escaping detection within the United States.”
