The article "Nearly half of robbery victims in Durham [North Carolina] are Hispanic" (heraldsun.com/durham/4-806625.cfm) says that others say that Hispanics are a lucrative, vulnerable and growing target for armed robbers. Of course, they aren't really refering to "Hispanics" in general, but to illegal aliens, many of whom don't have bank accounts and carry large amounts of cash with them. And:
An assistant Durham County district attorney supports their assertion, saying armed robbery of Hispanics here is chiefly a black-on-Hispanic crime.
The first lesson here is that this wouldn't be an issue if there weren't so many illegal aliens there.
The second lesson here is that articles like this are sometimes precursors to self-interested parties stepping in offering to "help". Expect the Mexican government to announce a partnership with local or national banks (such as Wells Fargo or Bank of "America"), with perhaps that government giving their Matricula Consular card to illegal aliens outside the bank and the illegal aliens then using that card to open accounts.
