VIDEO: Crimes Against Immigrants Go Unreported

From Truth in Immigration:

In response to unsubstantiated fears that undocumented immigrants are criminally inclined, many local and state governments have passed ordinances and resolutions that require or permit local police to question the legal status of virtually anyone they come in contact with.  As a result, many immigrants, legal or otherwise, have avoided any contact with local police for fear that they may be deported.  The consequences have been dire.

Criminals, armed with knowledge that their crimes are likely go unreported, have begun targeting anyone who may appear to be “illegal,” whether they be undocumented, legal residents, or U.S. citizens of foreign descent.  The local laws, instead of reducing crime, have only served to increase the amount of immigrant-targeted burglaries in these communities.
