http://www.law.psu.edu Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia, a clinical professor and director of Penn State's Center for Immigrants' Rights has worked with advocacy groups to demonstrate the "discriminatory and duplicative" natue of the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS). The Deparment of Homeland Security announced that it will suspend the policy which is welcome news to Professor Wadhia. Produced in collaboration with the American-Arab Antidiscrimination Committee, the Center developed a report, "NSEERS: The Consequences of Efforts to Secure Its Borders," which provided the most comprehensive overview of the program and analyzed how NSEERS cases were handled in courts throughout the country. It also chronicled the real impact of NSEERS on the Arab, Muslim, and South Asian communities and their respective American families and proposed recommendations, most notably the termination of NSEERS by DHS.
