Hispanics immigrants are more and more becoming the targets of robbers. This is due to a theory that Illegals cant open bank accounts therefore are more likely to carry large amounts of cash on them. Some robbers even wait outside check-cashing places on payday to get their loot from hispanics.

From my experience working inside a bank, hispanics do tend to cash big checks and carry more cash from their deposits/withdrawls.

The idiots who are robbing should receive jail time of course. But, and this is a major BUT, the illegals would not be robbed if they were not in the country in the first place. All lawbreakers should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

nobody is blaming the hispanics who get robbed. but walking around with 2 or 3 thousand in benjamins in a high-crime area when you fit the profile of high-yield robbery victims aint smart.

Go ahead and take what you wanted out of context. It shows you for what you believe. I said that ALL lawbreakers should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The facts are that if the illegals had not been here they would not get robbed. Don't like the facts? Then go ahead and live in your fantasy world. Yes, many citizens do in fact put themselves in situations to be robbed and attacked. Not all of course but many do.

It is too bad that this type of thing happens. Nothing IMO, justifies this criminal behavior.

I would suggest however that those here illegally be aware that they ARE targets and should act accordingly
