The two brothers on Wednesday urinated on a 58-year-old man sleeping near a train station before punching him and beating him with a metal pole, according to police.
The two brothers, Scott and Steve Leader, are facing charges including assault and indecent exposure. Both have pleaded not guilty and are being held without bail.
Witness’s say they flagged down a state trooper at about 12:30 a.m. after seeing the attack and watching the brothers walk away laughing, prosecutors said.
Following Scott’s arrest, he told troopers "Donald Trump was right, all these illegal’s need to be deported."
The presidential candidate has been facing controversy since he called some illegal Mexican immigrants “criminals” and “rapists.”
He recently said that if elected, he would deport millions of illegal immigrants and then sort “good ones” from “bad ones,” before letting the “good ones” back into the country.
The Mexican government has confirmed the victim of the beating as one of its citizens.
Daniel Hernandez Joseph, the consul general of Mexico in Boston, announced that his government would "take the necessary measures to defend the rights and interests of Mexicans."
Mexican officials said they would follow the investigation “very closely” to ensure perpetrators of the crime are held accountable.
According to court records, Scott had served a year in jail for assaulting a Moroccan coffee shop worker.
