Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting on the illusion of immigrant criminality:
In an environment "where Latinos are racially profiled and immigrants are dehumanized and persecuted as 'illegals' and 'criminal aliens,'" writes Justin Akers Chacon, co-author, with Mike Davis, of No One Is Illegal, "the hate-filled and the weak-minded will rally to the cause in their own violent way." He notes that attacks on Latinos have risen "in tandem with the intensification of the immigration debate," rising 35 percent between 2003 and 2006 (Ventura County Star, 3/27/08). Fictitious numbers on immigrant crime in the media have undoubtedly done their part in fueling these real crimes.
