American Gangsters Prey on Immigrants in Kansas


"Nearly two dozen members of an Hispanic gang were arrested in Kansas this
week under a federal grand jury indictment accusing them of victimizing [unauthorized] immigrants who do their business in cash and are reluctant to
go to law enforcement because of their immigration status. … U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said all but one of the 23 members of the
Norteños gang arrested are first- or second-generation U.S. citizens. He
said they preyed on [unauthorized] immigrants who were vulnerable and unlikely
to seek police protection, using violence and threats to create a
climate of fear, defend the gang’s reputation and territory and promote
its drug trafficking activities." – Associated Press, May 11, 2012
