On the New "Alien Land Laws"

There has been a rise in legislative attempts within the U.S. to ". . . bar citizens of foreign adversaries from being able to purchase real property." More information in this story, With New “Alien Land Laws” Asian Immigrants Are Once Again Targeted by Real Estate BansLinks to an external site.


Also, here is info on a NAPABA webinar about these laws taking place next week.

After a series of state laws were introduced earlier this year that threatened to discriminate against the rights of immigrants to own property, the National Iranian American Council (NIAC) organized a broad coalition of civil society and civil rights groups to fight them back. Now we have to organize at the federal level to defeat the Rounds Amendment, which would ban Iranian, Chinese, North Korean, and Russian nationals from purchasing certain agricultural property or private real estate used in agriculture.

Join a call on Tuesday, September 12 at 6pm ET/3pm PT.

We will dive into our coalition's fight against alien land laws and learn ways to act. We'll have special guest Gene Wu, State Representative for Texas' District 137. This event is co-hosted by NIAC, AAJC (Asian Americans Advancing Justice), and NAPABA (National Asian Pacific American Bar Association), with grassroots participation from the AAPI and Iranian American communities. A Q&A will follow
