After a third killing, Fin discovers that all three children were "anchor babies" of immigrant families, and reaches out to the Center of Immigrant Services. After sifting through the Center's hate mail, and witnessing a fight between immigration lawyer Randall Carver and Joe Thagard, a fanatical follower of a xenophobic talk show host, Fin begins to narrow in on the killer.

Loved this episode!
16 January 2010 | by cagordon22See all my reviews

This script was excellent and realistic, and played out very well. Since I work in hospitals, I unfortunately see the result of hate-motivated race crimes all the time.

I'm glad SVU finally addressed the growing problem of the followers of the hatemongers that do encourage frightened people to hurt "others" who aren't WASPs. I'm amazed that the other reviewers found it implausible that there are crazed followers of ultra-conservative talk show hosts that commit horrendous crimes. They should try working in an E/R just one Saturday night.

I'm not saying that there should be restricted speech for any one with any view, but we should all be more aware of the people that take these hatemongers too seriously. Good for L&O producer Dick Wolfe for exposing these cowards who hurt others.
