Brooklyn Officials Denounce Anti-Immigrant Hate Crimes

El Diario/La Prensa, Posted: Oct 22, 2009

NEW YORK -- City council speaker Christine Quinn met with the community of Bushwick, Brooklyn Tuesday to address anti-immigrant hate crimes. She referenced the latest attack, against Mario Vera, a Mexican day laborer who was assaulted by three teenagers and is now hospitalized with brain damage. "New York is a city of immigrants and an attack on a Mexican immigrant is an attack against us all," asserted Quinn, requesting the communitys help in finding the alleged suspects.

The attack in the neighborhood of Bushwick, which is 70 percent Latino, was not an isolated incident, reports El Diario/La Prensa. Other recent attacks on immigrants include Alvaro Herandez, a Domincan, who was beaten near a train station, and his cousin Christian Cabanillas, who was attacked after a party. Last December, Jos Sucuzhaay, an Ecuadoran, was beaten to death with a bottle of wine in the same neighborhood.
