Guatemalan Immigrants Targets of New Bedford, Mass. Crime

The Boston Globe reports that many community leaders see a crime pattern in the city of New Bedford, Massachusetts.  Over the last few years, crimes, including vicious physical attacks, have been directed at Mayan Guatemalans. According to the Globe, "The Mayans are seen as soft targets: They’re employed, they cash their paychecks and carry the money home, and, since many are undocumented, they don’t feel comfortable going to the police."
