The authors (all law, from the U. of Oregon, U. of Nevada-Las Vegas, Willamette U. in Oregon, and Seattle U. in Washington) summarize and interpret US law with attention to the issues that most affect Latino readers. The introduction discusses immigration, language, and discrimination, along with a broad analysis of the US Latino population and practical guidance for the application of the text in personal and social justice contexts. The remaining chapters discuss the following law topics: employment law, discrimination in housing, language discrimination, hate speech, education, voting rights, the criminal justice system, the choice of lawyers and tax filing for immigrants, documented immigrants, and undocumented immigrants. Sub-sections address federal and state laws and relevant major cases, also providing historical context and recommendations for the protection and defense of Latino rights in the US justice system.
