Gov. Deval Patrick’s stand on illegals is indefensible

It’s going to take some politician’s kid getting killed by a drunken illegal alien before the hacks finally figure out that there’s a mighty big problem here.
You know what happened in Milford on Saturday night. A totally smashed illegal from Ecuador is accused of running a stop sign and mowing down a 23-year-old American on a motorcycle, and then proceeding to drag him, screaming, under his truck for a quarter mile.
When the illegal finally ran off the road, the American became disentangled. He was still alive. But then the illegal backed his truck back over him, according to prosecutors.
Told later he’d killed the young man, Matthew J. Denice, cops say the illegal shrugged.
At his first appearance in court Monday, Nicolas Guaman needed a translator, even though he’s been in the country for five years. Apparently he’s picked up at least a bit of our lingo along the line — in the cab of the truck, cops found cans of Budweiser cerveza, which he was somehow able to purchase.
Right now the pols are fighting over a proposal to round up illegals such as Guaman before they kill. It’s called Secure Communities. You can figure out where the top hacks stand. Gov. Deval Patrick would prefer to give them free tuition to state colleges. Mayor Mumbles Menino recently pronounced that car theft by an illegal alien was not a crime worthy of deportation.
And of course there’s Attorney General Marsha Coakley’s famous quote: “Technically, it is not illegal to be illegal in Massachusetts.”
But even moonbats at least claim to want to get the violent criminals out of society. It’s just that they want to decide what laws will be enforced and which ones won’t.
So far we know this about Guaman. In addition to being arrested three times since 2007 for driving without a license, the Milford police said he got a year of probation for assault and battery on a police officer. This was apparently the same incident in which the alleged killer, according to the Middlesex News, was also charged with attacking a firefighter “after a 2008 incident in which he interfered with the treatment of a family member who had allegedly attempted to enter someone else’s house.”
Gov. Patrick’s flack yesterday issued this statement about Matthew Denice: “Our deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of the victim of this terrible crime. . . . The Governor’s policy is that serious criminals who are here illegally should be deported.”
Maybe, Deval, you should think about doing it before, rather than after they actually killed somebody.
