BOULDER - Two teenagers were arrested Tuesday after police found them assaulting a Hispanic customer outside a convenience store.

At around 6:15 Tuesday evening Ivan Ponce De Leon-Najera, 26 of Louisville, was approached by the two teens as he left the PDQ in the 5200 block of Manhattan Circle, according to police.

Police say the teens yelled a racial slur and asked Ponce De Leon-Najera why he was stealing their jobs. The confrontation soon turned physical with the teens pushing and punching the man and trying to spit on him, according to police.

Too bad the story didn't say the man was an illegal immigrant but i won't be surprised if those criminals are part of alipac, sos, vdare or some anti-immigrant/latino group.

It's terrible that happened. Just goes to show how our government has failed us. Their lack of enforcing the immigration laws has pushed some to the point of hateful, illegal and immoral behavior. I think all illegals should be sent home but I certainly don't condone beating anyone up, legal or illegal, black, brown, white or poka dotted.

I read the article; those punks also stole some property from another kid so they were obviously 'equal opportunity' criminals.

Needless to say: said teenagers need to be punished accordingly------and, their Spanish surnamed victim, if illegal, also needs to face the consequences.

Yes, i blame the goverment for the hateful and racist behavior shown by the two men.

Btw, i always wonder why illegal immigrants are blamed for all the "bad things" that happen but when something like this happens, the government is blamed?

It's sad that something like this has happened, but it's not unforeseeable. As the frustration level grows, some folks are going to have a tougher time keeping their emotions in check and acting like human beings. I don't condone the violence, but I do predict more of it should this problem be left unaddressed much longer.

I dont agree with violence. The article only states the customer was hispanic, it does not clarify if he was an illegal. Those teens probably will end up in bigger problem along their lives. Do you guys have any idea of how many of these kids are in jail or have their future very limited due to stupid poor decisions? Hundreds of hundreds. So please do not write posts congratulating them for their stupidity. When an employer request a background check on these kids, do you thing they will hire them knowing they had a past of violence?

Nowhere in that article is immigration or immigrant (illegal or legal) even mentioned - so what does this story have to do with immigration? The victim could be born and raised here - as a matter of fact, from his comments, it seems like he is a native English speaker.
