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. 

Diego Low, director of the MetroWest Immigrant Work Center, said Milford has long been home to anti-immigration sentiment.

“Milford has been a place of tension for the Ecuadorian community for a number of years,” Low said. “The politics of Milford are anti-immigration.”

Milford Selectman Brian Murray, who said immigrants have not been targeted in Milford, said it is dangerous for MIRA to give unverified claims of harassment as fact.

“I have no personal knowledge of any tension with any ethnic group in Milford. My office is right on Main Street, and I have not seen any problems,” Murray said in an interview yesterday.

Organizers of the Boston event offered seven anecdotes of harassment in Milford, including allegations of immigrants being verbally harassed and physically assaulted by young people. Organizers used aliases to protect who they said are immigrants frightened of sharing their identities.

Other incidents are hard to validate because many immigrants are scared of coming forward for fear of being deported, organizers said.

Speakers also condemned Secure Communities, a federal program that allows for better sharing of information between law enforcement agencies about illegal immigrants who have been charged with crimes.

“The violence we condone and create by Secure Communities is not the answer,” said the Rev. Wendy von Zirpolo, Minister of Unitarian Universalist Church of Marblehead. “Hate-based legislation creates violence.”

Fernandes said his bill, called “An Act to Enhance Community Safety,” was aimed at solving problems such as people working without documentation or driving without licenses.

“I don’t think it’s about anti-immigration,” Fernandes said in a phone interview. “It’s not about anti-anything. It’s about raising the awareness relative to the problems in our community.”

The bill was referred to the Joint Committee of the Judiciary on Monday. Fernandes said he is hopeful the bill will go to hearing before the Legislature adjourns for the year on Nov. 16.

Fernandes praised the Milford Police Department’s efforts to reach out to the immigrant community and questioned the legitimacy of any anecdotal claims of harassment.

“That is one of the most outrageous allegations to make casually if they can’t report it to police,” Fernandes said.
