Commission on Civil Rights, Washington, DC. (1990). Changing Perspectives on Civil Rights. United States Commission on Civil Rights Forum (Los Angeles, California, September 8-9, 1988). A subcommittee of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission heard testimony on social changes in progress and the future of civil rights, in the first of a series of forums. During the 2-day forum, the Commission received a wide range of information and views from representatives of federal, state, and local governments; civil rights groups; the press; private industry; and academia. The participants indicated that two important population trends are developing in the United States. First, minority populations, particularly the Hispanic and Asian populations, are growing faster than the non-Hispanic White population, especially among younger age groups. Second, the age distribution of non-Hispanic Whites is changing because of high rates of growth among older age groups resulting in a growing older population that is predominately White and a shrinking younger population that is increasingly minority. Specific topics addressed include ethnic diversity, political participation, enforcement of voter rights, labor force and economic changes, employment discrimination, education, intergroup relations, and combating harassment and hate group activity. Included with the actual proceedings are the written testimony of witnesses, six figures, and the following selected papers: "The Political Impact of Demographic Changes" (B. E. Cain); "Hispanic Education, Leadership, and Public Policy" (L. Freedberg); "Changing Demographics in Higher Education: The Case of Black Americans" (S. B. Graves); "New Approaches to Justice: The Neighborhood Foundations" (J. A. Kromkowski); "Changing Demographics and Employment Regulation" (J. S. Leonard); and "Rethinking Entrepreneurship" (I. Light and C. Rosenstein).   [More]  Descriptors: Advisory Committees, Asian Americans, Blacks, Civil Rights

Maciel, David R., Ed.; Ortiz, Isidro D., Ed. (1996). Chicanas/Chicanos at the Crossroads: Social, Economic, and Political Change. Dubbed the "decade of the Hispanic," the 1980s was instead a period of retrenchment for Chicanos and Chicanas as they continued to confront many issues of earlier years in a more conservative political environment. This book assesses the most significant developments in the conditions and experiences of Chicanas and Chicanos since the late 1970s. Ten essays by leading Chicano and Chicana scholars on economic, social, educational, and political trends examine such issues as the rapid population growth of Latinos, the turn to the right in American politics, the rise of anti-immigrant sentiment, the launching of new initiatives by the Mexican government toward the Chicano community, continuing struggles related to educational equity and bilingual education, feminism, and the emergence of a new generation of political activists.

This newsletter contains seven articles related to the educational rights of culturally diverse language-minority students.

Olson, Jean T. (1987). Cover Your Ears! U.S. Impingement on the Right to Hear through Political Exclusion Provisions. This paper argues that in recent years the number of aliens being denied nonimmigrant visas to the United States because of their liberal political views has increased. The roles of each of the branches of government in the procedure of denying visas are reviewed. The number of visa denials in the lower courts has risen dramatically since 1980, suggesting an escalation of political control of information (i.e. speakers from abroad) since President Reagan's election. The denials are based on the authority of the Immigration and Naturalization Act (INA), but many instances are marked by judicial reliance on procedural issues rather than the constitutional rights involved. When Belgian journalist E. Mandel was denied entry to the United States in 1969 on the grounds of previous visa violations, the Supreme Court paid little attention to the public's constitutional right to hear him speak. Since then, others have been denied entry on the grounds that they are affiliated with anti-nuclear organizations, communist organizations, or women's rights groups. The judicial branch of the government is reluctant to make judgments in matters that overlap with the executive branch's powers. The U.S. government should conform to the levels of tolerance it demands of its citizens, in light of the First Amendment, and allow its citizens free and open discourse with aliens expressing dissenting beliefs.
