Oppression Overlooked

Those whose purposes are served by evidence that the United States society is racist like to point to the disproportionate presence of young black men in prison as evidence that the criminal justice system is biased. Those who speak for the undocumented are missing the opportunity to make a similar point. The fact that illegal immigrants are in Federal prison at six and one half times the rate of ordinary Americans must be clear proof of prejudice.
