Storyline

Panic Nation is about the personal and national effects that state immigration laws are having here in the United States. Since 2007, 46 states adopted more than 240 immigration-related measures. The state of Oklahoma passed the nation's most comprehensive anti-immigration bill known simply as House Bill (HB) 1804. Republican and Democratic lawmakers in both the state's House and Senate voted for its passage with approximately 86% in favor. Some estimate that as many as 80,000 Latinos (documented and undocumented) left the state leaving thousands more living in fear not only of arrest and deportation but of violent, racially motivated crimes. Who is behind Oklahoma's legislation? Are state sponsored anti-immigration laws the answer? Does the country need comprehensive federal immigration reform? Written by George Adams
