An Ecuadorean immigrant beaten to death in an apparent U.S. hate crime was carried to his grave on Saturday in a coffin scattered with roses and his nation's flag in a town that has seen thousands of others seek their fortunes abroad.
Julia Quintuna, the mother of Jose Oswaldo Sucuzhanay sobbed as she embraced her 10-year-old grandson Brian, one of Sacuzhanay's 12 children.


Prosecutors said seven teenagers charged in Lucero's assault had set out to attack a Hispanic person, while three teenagers linked to Ramirez's death also face charges of ethnic intimidation.
There were 830 Hispanic victims of hate crimes last year in the United States, up from 819 in 2006 and 595 in 2003, according to FBI statistics.

Agreed. What I don't like is how the IA's make it a point of drudging up the 1 or 2 murders of a hispanic as if it justifies the thousands of Americans who have died or been victimized by numerous acts at the hands of illegal aliens of their raza.

No one is justifying ANYTHING. I have the same right as you to post articles on this forum, i hate how one side of the argument has taken over this forum and try to dictate to people what to post and not what to post.

He's just posting an article that is very much immigration related. Everything else you're saying is just putting words in his mouth.
