United States v. Bhagat Singh Thind, 95 years later
Please join SABA-DC as we discuss the The United States v. Bhagat Singh Thind and how far the South Asian American community has come since this case was decided 95 years ago.The Supreme Court case, which determined that Bhagat Singh Thind, "a high caste Hindu of full Indian blood, born at Amrit Sar, Punjab, India," was not a "white person," led to the revocation of Thind's naturalization as a US citizen and rendered future naturalization applicants of Indian origin as "aliens ineligible for citizenship." Our distinguished speakers will discuss the case, the progression of the rights of South Asians in the United States since then, and where the community is now.
The event will be at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, February 20, 2018
