Post-Katrina Law Enforcement and the Latino Community

When the waters receded after the federal flood of 2005, two main groups occupied the city of New Orleans. The first, law enforcement officials charged with keeping order in a chaotic wasteland. The second, an unprecedented wave of undocumented latino immigrants who sought to capitalize on the opportunity to clean up and rebuild. Now, nearly seven years later, Patrick Harvey and Justin Klein set out to gain some perspective on how these events have forever changed both the city and the dynamic between these two important groups of residents. The first stop is Jackson Square in the French Quarter. Produced by Justin Klein and Patrick Harvey April 2012. Produced in connection with the Politics of Immigration course taught by Professor Casey Love and in collaboration with the Center for Public Service. (13:57).
