Tram Nguyen: "We Are All Suspects Now": Since 9/11 counter terrorist efforts have merged with U.S. immigration policy resulting in discrimination against immigrants perceived to be Muslim, Arab, Middle Eastern, or South Asian on the basis of their name, race, religion, ethnicity, or national origin. The domestic war on terror has caused entire communities to come under suspicion and increased racial profiling of all immigrants.
