The Consulate General of Mexico in Boston has established contact with the victim to provide protection and legal assistance.

Two brothers urinated on and beat a Mexican homeless man who was sleeping near a train station and one of them said afterward that Donald Trump was right about deporting “all these illegals,” police said.

The brothers, Scott Leader and Steve Leader, were held without bail Wednesday on charges including assault, indecent exposure and threatening to commit a crime. They pleaded not guilty.

A state police report filed in court says Scott Leader told troopers after his arrest, “Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported,” The Boston Globe reported. Court records show Scott Leader served a year in prison for a hate crime against a Moroccan coffee shop worker after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, the Globe said.

Witnesses flagged down a state trooper at about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday after they saw two men use a metal pole to beat a man near an MBTA station and then walk away laughing, prosecutors said.

The victim, who was treated for a broken nose, serious bruises and other injuries, told police he awoke to find the two men urinating before they ripped off his sleeping bag and blankets and beat him.

After confirming the attack against a Mexican citizen in Boston, Massachusetts, the Mexican government regretted the incident in a statement.

The Consulate General of Mexico in Boston has established contact with the victim to provide protection and legal assistance.

Additionally, the Mexican governmen said it will closely follow the investigation into the crime.
