Parents: Hispanic kids being bullied in law’s wake

< Previous Page

"The kids get along great, it’s the adults who are the problem," Warren said. "There are a lot of similarities to what went on back in the ‘50s and ‘60s with the civil rights movement. A lot of people are out of work now and they want to blame someone. I think the Hispanic people are catching a lot of that."

Warren is right about at least one thing: The taunting extends to the grown-up world. Supporters of the law have filled Steve Dubrinsky’s email account with critical messages and peppered online message boards with negative reviews of his popular restaurant, Max’s Delicatessen, after a talk radio show mistakenly said he employs illegal immigrants at his business in suburban Birmingham.

Dubrinsky’s wife is a legal immigrant from Mexico, and he said all nine of his immigrant workers have proper papers. But he is still worried about the future of his business amid the onslaught.

"I’ve never experienced anything like this before," said Dubrinsky. "Those reviews were just plain and simple out to get me over this."
