Surprise! Administration’s ‘Humanitarian Deportation’ Means Criminal Aliens Get to Stay

Following a promise from the Presidente to make deportation more “humane”, the administration has decreed that “petty” criminals can benefit from Obama’s executive amnesty.

Who hasn’t seen this coming? More “humanitarian” deportations weren’t going to include better sandwiches for Pancho during his trip home: obviously enforcement standards had to fall lower.

But it’s worse than that: there are no standards. “Petty” crime has no definition at all, so it’s whatever some bureaucrat wants it to be. Is theft no big deal? What about carjacking? Is drunk driving a petty crime?

Drunk driving is a crime many in the government have preferred to overlook, even though numerous Americans have been killed by drunk-driving illegal aliens. Arguably from a public safety perspective, drunk-driving aliens should be at the top of anyone’s Deport ASAP list. But we cannot trust the Obama administration to act with the protection of Americans in mind.

In 2011, many concerned citizens of Milford Massachusetts gathered to demand the government enforce immigration laws after young Matthew Denice was dragged to death by a previously arrested drunk-driving illegal alien.

In addition, the protection of illegal alien criminals has been a common theme in Democrat immigration legislation and policies generally. In 2011, Senator Jeff Sessions observed that the DREAM Act of that year was worse than the last in terms of creating a Christmas tree of goodies for dangerous foreigners, and he provided a point-by-point list of criminal-friendly items.

Is not every immigration bill worse than the last when the Democrats are major authors (and many Repubs are just as bad)? The problem is the Raza open-borders extremists are pulling the legislative strings and they do not act in good faith.

DHS giving illegal immigrant ‘petty’ criminals second chance in waiver application process, Daily Caller, March 24, 2014

Are you an illegal immigrant whose waiver to stay in the country was denied because of your criminal past? Well, you’re in luck, because the Obama Administration may let you stay in the country anyway.

In a guidance distributed to congressional offices and obtained by The Daily Caller, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that it is reopening cases in which applications for provisional unlawful presence waivers were denied to criminals.

According to the notice, USCIS had determined that applicants should not be denied an I-601A waiver due to a past criminal offense so long as it “falls under the petty offense or youthful offender exceptions or is not considered a crime involving moral turpitude.”Last week, USCIS began reopening waiver applications denied due ’solely’ to a prior criminal offense before January 24, 2014, “in order to determine whether there is reason to believe the prior criminal offense might render the applicant inadmissible.”

The notice does not specify what types of crimes constitute a “petty offense,” and defines neither “youthful offender” nor “a crime involving moral turpitude.” Neither DHS nor USCIS responded to TheDC’s requests for comment. Continue reading this article

Massachusetts Mulling Driver’s Licenses for Illegal Aliens

In Massachusetts, the usual suspects are pushing driver’s licenses for foreign intruders. The boosters claim that requiring aliens to learn the rules of the road would make driving safer for everyone.

Interestingly, when illegals lined up around the block for licenses in Nevada, around 75 percent of applicants failed the written test. That figure would comport with the arrogance of Latin males who think they don’t need to study to pass a test.

However, a substantial number of deaths by illegal aliens are fueled by excessive drinking, where knowing state laws and the stopping distance at 60 mph won’t prevent a blotto drunk foreigner from killing innocents. In fact, drinking immoderately is considered to be a positive character attribute indicating macho-ness in many hispanic cultures, particularly Mexico.

Back to Massachusetts, the mother of crime victim Matthew Denice has spoken out against the proposed weakening of driver’s license protections.

Denice (pictured) was was killed when a drunk driving illegal alien Ecuadoran smashed into his motorcycle and dragged the young man for a quarter mile as bystanders banged on the side of the perp’s truck trying to make him stop. The accused killer, Nicholas Guaman, had a long rap sheet including assaulting a police officer, but had been shielded from deportation by Massachusetts’ sanctuary policy.

Why do liberals want to protect dangerous criminals and willfully thwart public safety? Are they insane?

Advocates push for driver’s licenses for Mass. immigrants, Fox News Boston, January 26, 2014

BOSTON — Lawmakers will soon consider passing a bill that would allow illegal immigrants to get a driver’s license.

The Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition, or MIRA, is backing the bill.

Policy director Shannon Erwin says that issuing licenses to undocumented immigrants would make the roads safer because they would have to pass all of the RMV requirements and get insurance.

“It would let more drivers take the drivers’ exam. More people to learn the rules of the road, more people to purchase individual liability insurance,” Erwin said. “Nobody wants to be in an accident with an uninsured driver.”

Maureen Maloney lost her son, Matthew Denice, in August 2011 when illegal immigrant Nicolas Guaman allegedly struck and killed Matthew with his truck, dragging Matthew’s body down a Milford street.

Guaman is charged with his murder. Continue reading this article

Illegal Alien DUI Killer Pleads Guilty in Virginia

Last April, Maxey Ann Lynch (pictured) was killed by a drunk-driving illegal alien as she was doing her job of Richmond Times-Dispatch newspaper carrier. Her car was struck head-on by Guatemalan Santos Gabriel-Tomas driving the wrong direction, and she died later in the hospital.

Not only was his blood-alcohol content 0.19 percent (more than twice the legal limit), he also had no license to drive due to his illegal alien status.

Worse, this crime was entirely preventable because Gabriel-Tomas had been convicted in March 2012 of drunk driving, but was not deported. In a nation that cared about public safety, drunk-driving illegal aliens would be deported as a matter of law, but that is not the case here.

Now-retired Congresswoman Sue Myrick worked for years to pass the Scott Gardner Act, but with no success. As she said, the bill required, “You’re drunk, you’re driving, you’re illegal, you’re deported, period.” In 2012 Senator Chuck Grassley proposed a three-strikes requirement that would have meant deportation after three DUI arrests. However, that law would not have saved Sister Denice Mosier from a two-timer nor young Matthew Denice either.

Below, Santos Gabriel-Tomas was previously arrested but not deported.

Man pleads guilty in DUI fatality, Richmond Times-Dispatch, August 23, 2013

An intoxicated, wrong-way driver who pleaded guilty to the killing in April of a Richmond Times-Dispatch newspaper carrier in South Hill had been convicted of DUI a year earlier and had never been licensed to drive in Virginia.

Santos Gabriel-Tomas, 30, an immigrant from Guatemala in the country illegally, was convicted in March 2012 of driving under the influence of alcohol in neighboring Lunenburg County. He had never acquired a license to drive, but a judge in the earlier case revoked his privileges to obtain a license for 12 months as part of his punishment, Mecklenburg County Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Allen Nash said.

After the suspension period passed, Gabriel-Tomas continued to drive without a license and was doing so when he crashed head-on April 7 into a car being driven by longtime Times-Dispatch carrier Maxey Ann Lynch, 61, who later died at VCU Medical Center. Continue reading this article

Massachusetts: Secure Communities Is Implemented

Secure Communities is a common-sense federal program where the fingerprints of persons already in jail are sent to a national database to determine immigration status. Yet the open-borders Raza-tarians condemn the policy as an affront of the self-designated right of illegal aliens to break any American laws they want.

Interestingly, the Obama administration recently removed traffic violations from Secure Communities, even though illegal alien drivers, drunk and otherwise, are a major cause of foreigner-caused death among Americans. The new directive supposedly does not cover drunk driving illegal aliens — yet. When memories fade about shocking cases like the death of the nun Denise Mosier at the hands of a drunk-driving Bolivian, inebriated drivers will likely be quietly included among Obama’s protected class.

But today, the news is good. Despite Governor Deval Patrick’s stubborn defense of foreign criminals, the feds finally implemented Secure Communities in the Bay State.

Even the Boston Herald’s editorial board concurred that government protecting public safety is a good idea:

State now more secure, Boston Herald, May 11, 2012

To the bitter end the Patrick administration wanted it made clear that deploying the federal Secure Communities program in Massachusetts was absolutely not its idea. It simply defies logic that a team largely responsible for the safety of 6 million citizens would so vigorously resist a program that targets a small number of illegal aliens who have committed a crime.

Finally, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has gotten around to including Massachusetts on the list of states where sharing information on local arrests with federal immigration authorities will now be automatic and mandatory.

Local law enforcement agencies have of course always run fingerprints on suspects through FBI criminal databases. But that information now will be shared automatically with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which will determine how to proceed if a suspect is not a legal resident.

It’s not as if there has been a lack of evidence that action is needed. Just ask the family of Matthew Denice. Nicolas Guaman, an illegal immigrant from Ecuador with a record of prior arrests, stands accused of being behind the wheel of a pickup truck that struck and killed Denice last year. Had Secure Communities been in place when Guaman was arrested back in 2008 for assaulting a cop, it is no exaggeration to say Denice might still be alive. Continue reading this article

Obama’s Illegal Alien Uncle Onyango Gets a New “Hardship” License Instead of Deportation

It’s no surprise that the President’s uncle — the drunk-driving illegal alien from Kenya — won’t be punished for nearly crashing into a police car while in an inebriated state.

In late March, a judge made him hand over his driver’s license, as shown below. Now he’s gotten it back, or at least a reasonable facsimile “hardship” license.

The Obama gang has extended his administrative amnesty by granting “unlawful presence waivers” to anyone who has a relative residing in the United States, so Uncle Onyango doesn’t have anything to worry about.

The article below helpfully hints at how Massachusetts remains unnecessarily dangerous because Gov. Deval Patrick has refused to implement the sensible Secure Communities partnership with the feds to protect citizens from criminal aliens.

Uncle Obama on the roads again, Boston Herald, April 3, 2012s

Just a week after he copped a plea in a drunken-driving rap, President Obama’s illegal-alien uncle has landed a hardship driver’s license from the Registry of Motor Vehicles, making it perfectly legal for him to drive in Massachusetts — even though the feds say he doesn’t belong here.

Onyango Obama, 67, who lost his regular license for 45 days last week, scored his limited license yesterday from the Registry’s Wilmington branch, after convincing a hearing officer that life without wheels would have posed an undue hardship on his livelihood as a liquor-store manager. Obama bolstered his case with a letter from his employer, Conti Liquors, as well as proof that he’d enrolled in an alcohol-treatment program.

“He met all of the criteria,” RMV spokeswoman Sara Lavoie said.

Of the state’s decision to award Obama a license even though the federal government considers him an illegal alien, Lavoie would only say, “Registry business is based on Registry records.”

The license allows Obama to drive from noon to midnight.

The license award drew fire from one advocate of tough enforcement on illegals, Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson.

“Our democracy is predicated on law,” Hodgson said. “When we start to interpret these laws differently and manipulate them the way we want them to work for certain people, we start to send a mixed message to people that the law doesn’t really matter. Its subject to interpretation. You don’t have to follow the law. They find ways to justify it. We need the laws to be very clear. We need ‘no’ to mean ‘no’ again.”

Hodgson, along with sheriffs in Plymouth and Worcester counties, stood up for Secure Communities, a program that feeds local police fingerprint checks into federal databases to check the citizenship status of accused criminals. Gov. Deval Patrick has refused to enroll the state in the program.

Obama, a Kenyan national, lost his license last week after admitting in court that Framingham cops had sufficient evidence to convict him in an August OUI bust. His lawyer, P. Scott Bratton, said Obama has an immigration hearing next month.

A judge continued Obama’s OUI case without a finding for one year, meaning he’ll face no further punishment if he stays out of trouble. Obama is the half-brother of President Obama’s late father, and the older brother of Zeituni Onyango, who was granted asylum in 2010.

Baltimore Catholic Diocese Attacks Public Safety

In January, I blogged about the San Francisco Catholics crusading against the law-enforcement program Secure Communities: San Francisco Archbishop Campaigns against Public Safety.

Secure Communities is a federal system in which the fingerprints of persons already arrested are run through a federal database to check their immigration status so that dangerous criminals can be deported. Most people would consider that strategy to be basic common sense. Secure Communities is supposed to be implemented in every state by 2013.

But the Catholic church favors open borders and amnesty for the foreign lawbreakers who now fill its pews. It’s a market-share thing: numerous American Catholics bailed after the priest pedophilia scandal and for other reasons. In fact, a Pew survey found that “roughly 10% of all Americans are former Catholics.” So importing newbie Catholics is seen as desirable by church leaders, despite the crime problems associated with millions of unidentified foreigners.

In one example of how intelligent law enforcement is meant to prevent crime, the family of Matthew Denice called on Massachusetts Governor Patrick to “enact Secure Communities” to avoid future deaths caused by illegal aliens.

Anyone who assumed that religious officials condemning a successful public safety program was just a California aberration would be wrong. Leading Catholics in Baltimore favor coddling criminals just as much as their comrades on the left coast:

Catholic Church: We need comprehensive immigration reform, not ‘Secure Communities’ program, Baltimore Sun, March 5, 2012

The recent article about the expansion into Baltimore of the Department of Homeland Security’s program to crackdown on illegal immigrants (“Immigrants, city fear divide over status checks,” Feb. 26) makes clear the need for real immigration reform. Programs such as Secure Communities, regardless of aim, are succeeding in spreading fear and division and in threatening the stability of the family. Moreover, the program is altering the relationship between federal immigration enforcement and local law enforcement.

The Catholic Church’s concern for the welfare of migrants stems from its belief that immigration is ultimately a humanitarian issue because it impacts the basic human rights and dignity of the human person. The Church believes this dignity is undermined by this program’s alleged channeling of immigrants into the criminal justice system through racial profiling and pre-textual arrests for the purpose of vetting them for their immigration status. Because Secure Communities is operated at the point of arrest, rather than post-conviction, it casts a wide net over virtually any immigrant who has come into contact with the criminal justice system.

Criminal Illegal Alien Brothers Afflict Milford, Massachusetts

Milford Massachusetts has already suffered too much illegal alien violence with the dragging death of young Matthew Denice at the hands of a lawbreaking Ecuadoran, Nikolas Guaman. Now the accused killer’s brother has been arrested for stabbing another man.

Below, diverse criminals David and Nikolas Guaman are an example of criminal family values among illegal aliens.

Despite a “severe cutting,” the victim is expected to survive, no thanks to David Segundo Dutan Guaman, who knifed the guy at a party. Like his older sibling, David had previous arrests but was not deported.

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick is notoriously friendly to illegal aliens and has rejected Secure Communitie for his state. The Denice family called on the governor to enact the program to prevent further violence by illegal alien criminals by punishing and deporting them. But Gov Patrick refused, and has remained a friend of foreign criminals and an enemy of public safety.

The Denice family is still engaged on the issue and spoke out against the policies that protect dangerous foreigners. They have a spokesperson, shown in the video below, and released a statement on the recent case, included in the print story following.

Guaman Brother Arrested: Denice Family Reaction: MyFoxBOSTON.com

Brother Of Milford Illegal Immigrant Accused Of Stabbing Man , WBZ-TV, February 20, 2012

David Segundo Dutan Guaman is charged with armed assault after a stabbing at his home on Water Street in Milford early Saturday morning. He is an illegal immigrant, and was wanted on warrants in connection with driving violations.

His brother, Nicolas Guaman, is charged with driving a pick up truck that struck and killed Matthew Denice last August.

Another brother, Pablo Guaman, is charged with giving Nicolas the truck. He is out on bail, wearing a monitoring bracelet.

ICE officials say at this point it appears David was not in their system. State officials confirm they did not have any fingerprints from him prior to the weekend stabbing. Now, ICE has launched a retainer against David Guaman, which means if he is let out of custody, ICE has 48 hours to take him into custody.

Milford’s Police Chief Thomas O’Loughlin says this case is a reminder to the community of Matthew Denice’s death, and the frustrations with the lack of comprehensive immigration reform. He says if the program, Secure Communities, was in place in Massachusetts, David would not have been identified because he hadn’t been arrested in a violent crime; however, he says other measures are needed to strengthen immigration laws. He says, “When is the federal government going to do something about individuals such as David Guaman and his brother? Until they do something, local police and state police we are in the middle dealing with the issues.”

Wendy Murphy, who represents Matt’s family, says, “Mathew Denice’s family is very distraught to hear there is, in a sense, the same kind of problem in this case.” Both men are illegal immigrants and both have driving records. Murphy says, “It looks like there is a systemic problem, in the sense that people who are here illegally, and are being coddled by the legal system, are escalating their illegal behavior, and we’re seeing acts of violence.”

Murphy says while Secure Communities would not have lead to David’s deportation before the stabbing, it is a tool that could help collected data and monitor crimes. She says Governor Patrick should reverse course and ask for it to be implemented to help understand the facts. “The public has a right to be angry, and has a right to ask political leaders of the state, why aren’t you measuring the problem?”

Governor Deval Patrick has opposed the Secure Communities program. Last year, ICE announced it will be implemented in every state by the end of 2013.

11.2 million people live in the United States illegally. Officials with ICE say they can only deport 400,000 people per year because of their financial resources. For that reason, they say they focus on deporting violent criminals.

David Guaman will be arraigned on Tuesday in Milford District Court.

The victim in the stabbing is expected to survive.

The Denice family released the following statement:

“Despite all the promises that were made by local officials, politicians, and leaders in the Ecuadorian community after our son Matthew Denice was killed, David Guaman, like his brother Nicolas, who killed Matthew, should not have been free to become involved in more serious violence. We are extremely concerned that despite all the promises that were made, about how things would soon improve and that the public would be better protected, nothing much has changed. Unlicensed drivers are cited on a daily basis, many of them after being involved in accidents or for being pulled over for driving drunk. Without proper training, passing a written test and a road test these drivers put all of our lives at risk on a daily basis. In Milford there has been a huge increase in excessive drinking that has resulted in several violent assaults over the last few months like this most recent stabbing by David Dutan-Guaman.

Our son Matthew Denice paid the ultimate price with his life because Nicolas Dutan-Guaman, who was in the country illegally, had a criminal record, and was unlicensed, chose to get drunk and drive. We are still deeply disappointed that when Govenor Patrick had the opportunity he did not chose to participate in the Secure Communities Program that would eventually lead to deportation of the most serious offenders illegally in our country.”

Sen. Grassley: Three DUI Strikes and Illegals Are Out

According to Human Events, Senator Charles Grassley got an amendment passed in the Judiciary Committee that would make “habitual” drunk driving — meaning three arrests — cause for deportation.

Say, what’s wrong with one DUI being the deportation marker? The Grassley change would not have saved Sister Denise Mosier from drunk Bolivian Carlos Montano, who had two previous DUI arrests before the third one which killed the Virginia nun.

The Grassley amendment would not have saved young Matthew Denice (pictured) from being dragged to death by a drunk illegal alien from Ecuador. Nicolas Guaman had several previous arrests, including the assault of a police officer, but there were no earlier DUIs, and he was not deported.

A better idea would be the Scott Gardner Act first introduced by Rep Sue Myrick (R-NC) in 2005: the upshot of which is “You’re drunk, you’re driving, you’re illegal, you’re deported, period.”

She continues to re-introduce the bill in every session of Congress.

For some reason, the Human Events report emphasized Obama’s illegal alien Uncle Omar. At least he didn’t kill anyone, unlike many other drunk-driving illegal aliens; you can say that in his favor.

‘Uncle Omar’ amendment would send drunk driving aliens home, Human Events, February 3, 2012

America’s favorite drunk-driving illegal alien uncle could be on his way home if he continues his drunk driving ways.

At its Feb. 2 meeting, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 18-0 to pass an amendment by Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R.-Iowa), which would change current statutes to make habitual drunk driving cause for deportation, but Democrats voted to strike language that would have made the provision retroactive. Habitual drunk driving is defined as having three DUI convictions.

If it was retroactive, it would mean bittersweet homecomings for many out-of-status visitors to our shores.

It would also mean a difficult situation for “sanctuary” cities and towns that do not report illegal aliens they encounter to federal authorities. If each new drunk driving conviction equals one third of a guaranteed deportation, immigration law nullifiers may start charging drunk driving illegals with something else.

Brother of Illegal Alien Crime Victim to Run for Milford Selectman

Michael Denice is the brother of Matthew, the young motorcycle rider who was cruelly dragged to death last year by a previously arrested drunk-driving illegal alien in Milford, Massachusetts. Michael has just announced his candidacy for the office of Selectman in his home town.

Below, Michael Denise is the fellow in the white sweater in the center of the group assembled in Milford to protest the preventable death of Matthew Denise.

Denice plans to run for selectman: MyFoxBOSTON.com

The preventable death of Matthew Denice illustrated how little the state of Massachusetts cares about public safety for citizens. The accused Ecuadoran, Nikolas Guaman, had several prior arrests, including assaulting a police officer. Democrat Governor Deval Patrick was particularly egregious in defending the state’s sanctuary policy that protected the killer alien. Senator Scott Brown urged the governor to adopt Secure Communities statewide, but Patrick wouldn’t budge.

As someone who has followed the issue of illegal alien crime, I know that family members of victims speaking out can make a big difference. After Sean and Donna Wilson were killed by a drunk-driving illegal alien with 17 arrests, daughter Heather Steffek worked within the political system to improve immigration enforcement in Tennessee and Nashville. The city later implemented 287(g).

Ed Kowalski, the uncle of murdered high school student Elizabeth Butler, has testified before elected officials in New York and Arizona about the crimes committed by illegal aliens.

Any time the public is reminded that illegal immigration is not a victimless crime, it’s a good thing.

You can check out Michael Denice’s Facebook page about his candidacy.

Brother of Milford man who died in accident to run for selectman, Milford Daily News, January 11, 2012

The older brother of the Milford man whose death in a motorcycle accident spurred furious debate about illegal immigration has announced his intention to run for selectman this spring.

Michael Denice, 26, who lives at 22 Debbie Lane, has taken out nomination papers and has set up a Facebook page about his candidacy.

If Denice makes the ballot, he would likely face Dino DeBartolomeis, who is seeking his 11th term on the board.

“The citizens of Milford need a voice on town issues. I have seen many changes occur in Milford over the past several years, including a rise in crime, an increase in immigration-related issues and a decline in the local economy and businesses,” Denice said in a statement. “We need selectmen that will not only work for the people, but more importantly work with the people in the community.”

Denice is the brother of Matthew Denice, 23, who police say was dragged to his death Aug. 20 by a pickup truck driven by Nicholas D. Guaman, an Ecuadorean who is in the country illegally. Police say Guaman was drunk when he hit Denice, who was riding his motorcycle at Congress and Fayette streets.

Guaman has been charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter while driving, motor vehicle homicide while under the influence, among other charges.

At a September forum in Town Hall designed to clear the air about the local Ecuadorian community, Michael Denice chided Ecuadorean officials, complaining that illegal immigrants have to work under the table, cannot drive with a legal license and must violate other laws just to stay in the country.

“What is your solution for those illegal immigrants already here today?” he asked, prompting a standing ovation from a crowd at Town Hall.

Illegal Aliens Claim Hostility from Milford Americans

In Milford, Massachusetts, the site of a terrible crime of an illegal alien against a citizen, the lawbreaking foreigners are attempting to portray themselves as the victims, despite substantial evidence to the contrary.

The moral midgets who support illegal alien criminals, from la Raza to the Catholic church, know that the crime issue is poison for them. It’s bad enough when illegals come by the millions and steal American jobs, but citizens are disgusted by the violent criminals who enter through the same open borders, with their cartels controlling territory in southern Arizona and their habitual drunk drivers mowing down innocents on the roadways.

In the face of a criminal surge, the political accomplices burp out twisted excuses, saying that the foreigners don’t commit crimes because they need to keep their heads down out of concern about their status.

However, actual measurements of behavior paint a different picture. The 2011 GAO study titled CRIMINAL ALIEN STATISTICS reported, “In fiscal year 2005, the criminal alien population in federal prisons was around 27 percent of the total inmate population, and from fiscal years 2006 through 2010 remained consistently around 25 percent.” The percentage of illegal aliens in the general population isn’t near that number — yet.

In the case at hand, one of the most horrific illegal alien crimes of the last year was the death of young motorcyclist Matthew Denice (pictured) in Milford, Massachusetts. The townspeople were infuriated that one of their own neighbors could be cruelly dragged a quarter mile to death under a truck driven by a drunk Ecuadoran who refused to stop.

The latest from Milford is an attempt on the part of the illegals and their usual cheerleader gaggle (ACLU, churches, professional ethnic mouthpieces) to ju-jitsu themselves into being seen as the victims (rather than the lawbreakers) by claiming that the Americans are MEAN to foreign colonists. Despite their job theft, crime, extensive use of social services and general mooching, the illegal aliens still expect to be welcomed like they were legal immigrants — go figure!

They are further upset that Americans want to expand enforcement and punishment to make them self-deport. The illegals characterize proposed legislation as part of a “hate” agenda when the bill is simply an expansion of basic law enforcement. Their tribe-based attitude of entitlement shows the foreigners to be unclear on the concept that American society is based on law — another reason they should leave.

Speakers at rally denounce Milford as anti-immigrant, Milford Daily News, November 8, 2011

Religious leaders and advocates for immigrant rights yesterday condemned what they say is harassment of Milford immigrants following the August death of a Milford man who police say was killed by an illegal immigrant driving drunk.

“People in Milford are afraid to go to the hospital. They are afraid to call 911,” said Filipe C. Teixeira, a bishop with the Catholic Church of the Americas diocese in Brockton. “We have created a state of fear.”

Teixeira was among eight speakers at a Boston rally organized by the Massachusetts Immigrants and Refugee Advocacy Coalition. The speakers took aim at what they say is growing hostility toward immigrants – from name-calling on the streets of Milford to legislation proposed by Rep. John Fernandes, D-Milford, that would place greater restraints on illegal immigrants registering cars, applying for in-state college tuition, living in public housing and looking for jobs.

“This bill was filed and explicitly tied to the recent drunk driving accident in Milford,” said Shannon Erwin, state policy director for the immigration coalition. “However, it has 24 broad-ranging amendments, most of which have nothing to do with crime but would make immigrants’ lives more difficult.”

On Aug. 20, Matthew Denice, 23, was struck while riding his motorcycle in Milford and dragged nearly a quarter-mile by a pickup truck driven by Nicolas Guaman, a 34-year-old illegal immigrant from Ecuador, authorities have said. Police say Guaman was drunk at the time of the accident, and he has been indicted on several charges, including second-degree murder.

Yesterday’s event was sponsored by the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization, American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts and Amnesty International. Continue reading this article

Illegal Alien Witness Allowed to Escape to Ecuador

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has repeatedly assured us little citizens that violent criminals were her agency’s top priority. But it’s apparently difficult to enforce the law only part of the time. As a result, we have seen failures such as the case of Sister Denise Mosier, killed by a drunk-driving illegal alien with priors who had been released from jail rather than deported.

Now we learn that an important witness, illegal alien Luis Acosta, in the dragging death of young Matthew Denice (pictured) in Milford, Massachusetts, cut off a tracking bracelet and may have escaped to Ecuador. Acosta was a passenger in the truck driven by Nicolas Guaman when he dragged Denice for a quarter mile, killing him.

(Your humble correspondent does not understand why monitoring bracelets cannot be made that are sturdy enough to resist being cut off. And why wasn’t Acosta put on the no-fly list?)

Milford Police Chief Tom O’Loughlin said he was “beside himself” with anger at the ineptitude of ICE officials and their statement that the loss of Acosta was his problem, not theirs.

Local Democrat Representative Richard Neal was similarly irate and has demanded a thorough investigation.

In other news of the case, Nicolas Guaman was indicted on Friday for the crime.

Milford police, Rep. Neal turn ire toward Homeland Security, Milford Daily News, Oct 21, 2011

As police continue to search for a witness to the accident that killed Matthew Denice, U.S. Rep. Richard Neal released the letter he sent to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano asking for a “top-down review” of policies that allowed the man to disappear.

Neal, D-2nd, yesterday echoed outrage expressed by Milford Police Chief Thomas O’Loughlin about a statement U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement issued Tuesday saying local jurisdictions, not the federal agency, are responsible for keeping track of witnesses in their criminal investigations.

“What is of significant concern is Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s inability to adequately share the most basic pieces of information with local law enforcement,” Neal wrote in his letter, which he sent yesterday on behalf of Denice’s family.

Police have said that on Oct. 1, Luis Acosta, 20, who was in the country illegally and lived at 10 Cherry St., Apt. 2, removed a tracking bracelet that ICE said it put on him while he waited for an immigration hearing.

Acosta was in the truck driven by Nicolas D. Guaman, 34, of 10 Cherry St., Apt. 1, when it struck Denice’s motorcycle on Aug. 20.

Local police didn’t learn that Acosta had cut off the monitoring bracelet until they asked ICE about Acosta, who had skipped a grand jury appearance Oct. 6, Neal wrote in his letter.

O’Loughlin and Neal questioned how this could happen in the post-9/11 world.

“In a time in history when we extol how we have built an extensive information-sharing network to counter terrorist activities, it alarms me that this policy failure is allowed to exist within the Department (of Homeland Security),” Neal wrote in his letter.

Police traced Acosta’s cellphone to JFK International Airport in New York.

Police found Acosta’s name on boarding manifest for a flight to Ecuador on Oct. 4, O’Loughlin said. Continue reading this article

“Illegals Have More Rights!” Says Texas Blogger

The item below is a personal story from a Dallas-area writer, James H. Reza, who recently experienced the worsening anarchy on the highways caused by the law enforcement’s permissive treatment of unlicensed illegal aliens who nevertheless drive on American roadways.

Sadly, the preventable carnage caused by drunk and unlicensed aliens appears to be on the uptick, since authorities still find it troublesome to deal out the same punishments to foreigners that they give to citizens. Common sense measures to protect public safety (like Secure Communities) are rejected by liberal politicians, even after terrible crimes that could have been avoided by prudent foresight and basic law enforcement.

A recent example of liberal irresponsibility has been the death of young Matthew Denice in Milford, Mass., at the hands of a previously arrested drunk-driving illegal alien. Governor Deval Patrick has nevertheless clung stubbornly to his policy of maintaining a Sanctuary State for foreign criminals.

James Reza is a retired engineer of Mexican heritage who defines his own feeling by saying that “all American Hispanics are not thrilled with illegal immigration.” He condemns the open-borders lawlessness, which one day came close to killing his son-in-law:

Illegal Aliens Have More Rights Than Americans!, by James Reza, Dallasblog.com, October 10, 2011

A couple of weeks ago, Cecilia, my daughter, in a somber voice asked me, “Dad, can you pick up Landon (my grandson) at school?  Chris (her husband) just had a bad car accident on his way to pick him up.” As I drove to Nolan Catholic High, I saw a parade of cars on the road where Chris had his accident. Avoiding the congested road, I opt to go another route to Nolan.  After I picked up Landon I informed him of his dad’s accident and that we were going to the accident site to check on his dad.  When we arrived at the accident scene Landon and I were shocked. Chris’ car was totaled, as was the car that hit him.  It had rained and the roads being slick the driver who was speeding lost control of his car causing the bad accident.  As I assessed the accident I was surprised that Chris was not seriously hurt, thanks to his air bag, which according to police saved his life or serious body injuries.  As the police questioned Chris and the other driver I noticed that he didn’t speak a word of English nor his 3 passengers.  Folks, not only was the driver and his passengers illegal aliens, the driver didn’t have a driver’s license or car insurance.  Had the illegal alien who had no business driving killed my son in law, I think my daughter and my grandchildren would have faced a difficult time in their future lives without their dad who is a great father and provider for his family.

When I learned that the illegal alien who hit my son in law’s car had no license and insurance I became incensed, not only at the police who didn’t arrest all of them for being here illegally and causing a near fatal accident, but at the damn uncaring car dealers who advertise in their car lots “no licencia, no seguranza, no problema!” (No license, no insurance, no problem!) My fellow Americans, when are we going to send a strong message with our votes to all the worthless politicians in Washington, in our state and our cities, that we are fed up with all the illegal immigration mess!  Having lived in North Fort Worth, a predominately Hispanic community for almost 48 years I saw with my own eyes the untold number of atrocities committed by illegals and how they would return to their homeland without every being prosecuted for the misdeeds.  No matter how gruesome the crimes these illegals commit, the Mexican government will not extradite them if they are to face the death penalty.  What Mexico really means is, “feed them, give them their medical needs, incarcerate them for life, but just don’t kill them!” Folks, we shelter thousands of Mexican criminals with our tax dollars.

Last week, as I watched a crime TV series I was appalled at a crime a young illegal alien male committed no more than 30 miles from my house in Denton, Texas.  The illegal abducted a young teen girl, tortured and raped her, and then he torched her car and took off to Mexico to live with his grandparents.  Later, when he was extradited to face a jury they sentenced him to life.  After the trial ended the mother of the illegal young man went to the mother of the teen girl and asked for forgiveness.  At that moment I remembered when Gov. Perry in his TV debate stated (here I’m paraphrasing), “We help the children of illegal aliens get tuition help in their education because through no fault of their own their parents brought them here.”  When will politicians like Gov. Perry realize that not all children of illegals are here to get an education!  Many commit crimes as this young man did in Denton.  With this tuition help to the children of illegal aliens, Gov. Perry along with other politicians exacerbate the illegal alien catastrophic situation in our country. Continue reading this article
