Deadly home invasions bring national attention

October 3, 2005

Albany-- The deadly home invasions here in South Georgia have caused national attention from the Hispanic community.

Since this past weekend, the Telemundo Network has been busy here in our newsroom at WALB-TV. They're a Miami-based NBC station that caters to the spanish-speaking community. The recent deadly attacks on Hispanics is what they call big, terrible news that affects Hispanics nationwide.

"They suffer a lot of abuse in this country because a lot of people know that they can't complain and they take advantage of that and that's very sad," says Telemundo News Anchor Rogelio Mora.

Mora says he's able to connect with the Hispanic community because he's bilingual. They tell him they're concerned that law enforcement isn't giving them enough information or security.
