Say someone is targeted due to illegal status... is it a hate crime? Should it be? Do illegals have discriminatory rights per legal status? Does a White middle class average Joe have the right to file a "hate crime" because someone he believed that he was targeted as an illegal?


What if I make a sign in front of my town that says, "Welcome to ... Illegals Not Welcome." Is that a hate crime?

I think not, because they technically don't "exist" here in the first place, and breaking the laws (state, federal and immigration laws).

Perhaps the illegal stealing the job and social security number is committing a hate crime.
