Skip to comments.Illegal immigration is not to blame for fatality, Patrick says

Governor Deval Patrick said yesterday that he shared the communitys outrage over the death of a 23-year-old Milford man struck last week by an alleged drunk driver who was also an illegal immigrant. But the governor urged people not to blame the death on illegal immigration.Matthew Denice was on his motorcycle last Saturday when he was hit in Milford and dragged for a quarter-mile. Nicolas Guaman, a 34-year-old immigrant from Ecuador, has pleaded not guilty to charges that include vehicular homicide while under the influence.
Its a terrible, terrible tragedy, Patrick said at the end of a news conference about preparations for Hurricane Irene. But, he added, Illegal immigration didnt kill this person. A drunk driver killed this person, and we have laws about that. And I expect the book to be thrown at this person.

What did Patrick tell them?
We dont need Secure Communities. All it does is give the impression that we are doing something. sums it all up very well
Dead Americans are just acceptable collateral damage to the open border traitors.
There will be a reckoning, some day.
Thats Right and the Guns dont kill people either,people do.
Funny how some things read differently when they have the same meaning and the subject is changed.
He says we have laws to deal with drunk driving. Well, we also have laws that deal with ILLEGAL immigrants! Enforce ALL laws, ignorant Patrick!
“Illegal immigration didnt kill this person. A drunk driver killed this person, and we have laws about that.”
I thought we had laws about ILLEGAL immigration as well.
Oh wait! They don’t apply to people who vote for Democrats, eh Paddy me boyo?
Excuses like this are the most pathetic.
Its like saying, if the illegal didn’t kill the victim, an American would have done it anyway.
You have a ruling elite that DOES NOT CARE that invaders come into our country, flaunt the law, murder tax-paying citizens, and are the beneficiaries of the largesse of the bounty that the people they killed created!
It is NUTS! The very definition of INSANITY!
Dead Americans are nothing compared to that goal.
It's the price we have to pay to "balance" the electorate so we can transform America.
“Illegal immigration didn’t kill this person... a drunk driver did”.
I disagree. If the person wasn’t in this country ILLEGALLY, then the accident wouldn’t have occurred. Period. We have some friends who lost their Dad in a similar way (illegal, drunk driving accident). The most difficult part of the tragedy for the family to accept was that someone who shouldn’t have been here... took their Father’s life. They felt like our government has allowed this to occur by not securing the borders AND throwing out anyone illegal. Can’t blame them.
He sounds like a complete idiot here.
But, he votes the right way.
“A drunk driver killed this person.”
What a stupid statement.
It is not as if it was an accident. They knowingly and willfully ignored the law for political reason and the casualty was an innocent American citizen.
Just doing the jobs Americans don’t want to.........
I hope people will consider how different America would be if we weren’t overrun with illegals.
If there are 30 million illegals in this country, that’s enough to populate more than 50 congressional districts. They may not all vote but they are changing congressional maps simply by being here and being counted in the census.
Without those illegals, its entirely possible that there would be many less democrat seats to deal with.
A criminal alien killed this person.
Islam killed 3000 people on 9-11.
Why do these people feel the need to defend criminals and terrorists?
Honesty from politicians would be refreshing.
“Without those illegals, its entirely possible that there would be many less democrat seats to deal with....”
Ummm...I think that’s the idea...
I think that this incident..and the whole question of illegals and crime, and how Mass handles, or more accurately, doesn't handle it....will become a BIG, if not defining issue in the Senate race...and Brfown will hang it aroudn Warren's neck like a 500 lb lead weight..
