RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. (KCRA) —
There are growing concerns about hate crimes in the greater Sacramento region — and across the nation. On Sunday, dozens of people gathered at the Hagan Community Center in Rancho Cordova to speak out about incidents involving bullying and hateful speech directed at members of the Indian-American community.
“People have always wanted their kids to be able to come to America,” Rep. Ami Bera, D-Elk Grove, told the crowded room filled with immigrants.
Some of those immigrants said Indian-American children are being harassed and called names at school.
