Threatening calls received by immigrant advocacy group

Police are investigating three threatening telephone calls received by an immigrant advocacy group in Montgomery County, Maryland, including a voice-mail message that warned one official that he could be shot for “being stupid and helping illegals.” According to the Washington Post:

One was left in a voice mail to [the Rev. Simon] Bautista on a Washington number he uses for his work as the Latino missioner of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington (DC). “Don’t be surprised when there’s a [expletive] bullet in the back of your [expletive] brain,” the caller said, according to a recording made available by CASA staffers.

CASA of Maryland runs five Maryland day-labor centers where workers can gather while waiting to be picked up for jobs. The centers in Montgomery have generally avoided the level of controversy that has affected some facilities, particularly in Herndon.
