American Samoa's status hangover of 'Jim Crow' laws - lawyer
24-12-2015 - RNZI.
A lawyer representing a group of five American Samoans hoping to take their case for United States citizenship to the Supreme Court says it's time for the territory to be treated fairly.
Currently, American Samoans are considered US residents, not citizens, which denies the territory and its people several constitutional rights and provisions.
