December 4, 2007 | Citizenship Now! with Allan Wernick
Muggers are increasingly targeting undocumented immigrants workers who return home at night carrying their wages in cash. According to a story in The New York Times, these cash-carrying immigrants, known as “walking ATMs,” rarely complain to the police because of their immigration status. Allan Wernick talks about why this is such a painful fact of life for undocumented immigrants and what their employers can do to help them become less of a target.
