HATE CRIMES AGAINST IMMIGRANTS SURGE

Rate this Entry

A report from the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights Education Fund shows that hate crimes targeting Hispanics rose 40% from 2003 to 2007. The report can be found here. Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies, the think tank of the anti-immigration Federation for American Immigration Reform told the Washington Post:

Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration
Studies, which was criticized in the LCCREF report, said it was
"another salvo against free speech by the pro-amnesty coalition . . .
to delegitimize any critic of mass immigration."

    Ash, you need a consultation with an experienced lawyer ASAP. This is not a light matter, trust me, and there A LOT of nuances.

    Thanks for posting this article.
    Yes this is true (Hate crimes against immigrants); but its just not against the Hispanics but other immigrants too. After the dot com bust many H1 folks were at the receiving end of this ; and then after the Sep 911 it was more against those who shared similar features with the Middle Easterners (folks in this country cannot distinguish between a Middle Easterner or a South Asians; and more recently after this economic collapse its generally against all immigrants. Most people think immigrants are all illegal. Its just not the uneducated in this country who are comitting hate crimes but also the highly educated from the so called best universities in this country.

    Hi Ash - Sorry, but I don't advise on individual cases here in a public blog. I usually suggest making an appointment with me or another immigration lawyer when you're seeking legal advice. I appreciate your understanding.
