Nik Theodore Phoenix Forum

The same day that the Senate voted to pass immigration reform, hundreds in Phoenix, AZ attended a community forum to discuss and address the crisis of confidence in local police caused by their involvement in immigration enforcement.

Community members targeted by racial profiling and raids spoke out and heard from Dr. Nik Theodore of University Illinois Chicago who wrote the study: Insecure Communities: Latino Perceptions of Police Involvement in Immigration Enforcement  based on data from Phoenix and three other cities that shows nearly 1/2 of Latinos are less likely to call the police, even when victim of a crime, because of their fear of immigration consequences.
