In April, a young Guatemalan man was brutally beaten to death by three white men in Jupiter, Florida. When the perpetrators were caught, one of them told the police he and the other men were out “Guat hunting”—meaning they were out looking for immigrants to beat up. The murder flew under the national radar, garnering almost no national headlines and few responses from Latino advocacy groups.
