From Jim Crow to Juan Crow

In 2011, the Alabama state legislature passed HB 56, which was coined as the “toughest anti-immigration law in the country.” The law targeted Hispanics, and came during a wave of other anti-immigration bills that were passed in Arizona, Mississippi, and Georgia.

Some critics deemed the law as draconian, a vestige of Jim Crow, and comparable to the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. In contrast, others supported the law based on the perception that the law protected jobs and increased public safety. Research and discuss Alabama’s, and other states’, anti-immigration laws.

Now, now embed this social issue into historical context. Hence, what are the parallels between HB 56 and the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882?
