Latinos in LA report fewer sex crimes amid deportation fears

Latinos in LA report fewer sex crimes amid deportation fears
 The police chief of Los Angeles, a city that is half Latino, found himself in the middle of the national immigration debate on Wednesday after saying there’s a correlation between the Trump administration’s call for stiffer immigration policies and a drop in the number of Hispanics reporting sexual abuse and domestic violence.
“Imagine your sister, your mother, not reporting a sexual assault for fear that their family will be torn apart,” LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said Tuesday.
Since the beginning of this year, sexual assaults reported by Latinos in Los Angeles have dropped 25 per cent, and domestic violence reports by Latinos have decreased by 10 per cent compared to the same period last year.
