From the Introduction: "The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 dramatically increased awareness of the need for more stringent security measures, but this awareness is tempered with caution against implementing measures that could undermine civil liberties. Because the source of the current foreign threat, there is some concern that measures implemented to fight that threat will have a disproportionate negative effect on innocent Arab-Americans, Muslims, and aliens with ties to the Middle East. The purpose of this report is to address the issues surrounding race-based civil detention for security purposes."
