I was reading an Op-Ed, “Crash test for dummies” by Michael Graham in the Boston Herald today. In part it states:
Michael Moran of Brighton is a staunch supporter of the “sanctuary” approach to illegal immigration we have here in Massachusetts. He voted against the Perry amendment that would require applicants for state benefits to prove they’re here legally. Moran voted for subsidized college tuition for illegals, too.
It’s safe to say that no Massachusetts politician has done more to make illegal immigrants feel welcome. Illegal immigrants like 27-year-old Isaias Naranjo, who (ahem) “met” Moran on the streets of Brighton last week.
According to Fox 25, Naranjo was driving 60 mph when he slammed his car into Moran’s. Naranjo was also drunk, driving without a license and – in an only-in-Massachusetts twist – was wearing a “Mexican costume” at the time.
Now if Naranjo were just another Massachusetts taxpayer, he would be in some serious guacamole. But Fox reports that when police tried to explain the seriousness of his situation, he just laughed.
“Nothing is going to happen to me, man,” Naranjo told the cops. That’s because he was “going back to my home country, Mexico.”
Naranjo had gotten the Massachusetts message: It’s never illegal to be illegal here. In fact sometimes it’s pretty damn good.
It lets you take advantage of Department of State Police General Order INV-17 – put into place by the Patrick administration – declaring it “inappropriate for state police to inquire about, or investigate a non-citizen’s immigration status.” No matter how many times a drunken, unlicensed, hit-and-run driver like Naranjo shouts “Go screw, coppers, I’m going back to Mexico,” our staties – and municipal cops for that matter – are under orders not to notice.
And the guys giving those orders are Gov. Deval Patrick and Rep. Moran. So while I’m sorry Moran was involved in an accident, you gotta admit: It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.
Do die-hard liberals like Patrick understand that criminal immigrants like this aren’t laughing with us, they’re laughing at us? That Democrats who feel like heroes for supporting benefits to illegals look like suckers to people like Naranjo and Aunt Zeituni who are gaming the system?
It’s embarrassing and getting worse. Even after the Moran case, a spokesperson for Patrick reiterated his support for the “I don’t want to know” approach to illegal immigration.
And if you think this drunk guy in the funny suit was laughing during his arrest, wait until he finds out that, according to Rep. Jeff Perry, Massachusetts judges aren’t allowed to consider his immigration status in setting bail. Which means he could be out on the streets and back in his “home country” by the weekend.
Perry wants to change that, a change almost certain to be opposed by Beacon Hill liberals.
Anyone remember the case of the 4-year-old boy grabbed at a public urinal at the Market Basket in Raynham? The guy who grabbed him was an illegal immigrant from Guatemala. The police released this child-groping perv to await trial and then were stunned when he didn’t show up for his court date.
He was back in Guatemala, of course.
Are we going to stay this stupid on purpose? Are we going to keep boycotting Arizona for enforcing immigration laws while we release illegals who crash our cars and grope our kids?Michael Graham hosts a talk show on 96.9 WTKK.
WOW! Are you east coast libs finally starting to understand the consequences of illegal immigration?
We, here in Arizona, are a pipeline for human misery not relief valve from it.
If you understand this problem and its consequences you will begin to see that facilitating illegal immigration is a disservice to the illegals, your fellow citizens and to our country. If you continue to think that this is a PC feel good issue this human misery will repeat over and over until you wake up and stop its flow from Latin America, China and Europe.
Amnesty, sanctuary, acceptance and encouragement of illegal immigration sustain the suffering, kidnappings, rapes and slavery illegals endure.
I live in the Tucson Sector! A minor fender bender suffered by a Massachusetts’ politician or a boy nearly snatched by a pervert from Guatemala doesn’t even give you a glimmer of what is happening down here in The Caldron. Prey you never see the true nature of this beast. Notice to all libs, don’t take the red pill!
