Here is yet another tale of death and destruction perpetrated by an illegal alien, this time aided by yet another grandstanding politician hoping to win votes. Nicolas Guaman, an illegal from Ecuador, decided to go out driving while intoxicated in Milford, Massachusetts in August of 2011. He struck and killed a young man on a motorcycle, dragging him for a quarter of a mile before stopping. Guaman’s criminal record should have flagged him for deportation some time ago, but his accomplice in the crime, Democratic Governor Deval Patrick, decided back in June of 2011 that Massachusetts would not participate in a federal program called Secure Communities. The program allows state and local law enforcement agencies to forward arrestee fingerprints to Homeland Security to check for immigration violations.
Of course, we don’t know for sure that participation in the program would have changed the outcome. But what we do know is that Homeland Security never got Guaman’s fingerprints after his earlier arrests, so he wasn’t deported, and now a young man is dead who might have been alive if not for political posturing. Governor Patrick stated that he didn’t want to join the federal program because it “casts too wide a net,” causing immigrants with no criminal histories to be deported. I’m sure this stance makes illegals like Nicolas Guaman happy that they are allowed to remain in the country, but maybe we should ask the grieving family and friends of the young motorcyclist if it gives them a warm fuzzy feeling.

Here’s the illegal alien, the face of evil, a face that should have been back in Ecuador long ago.
And here’s Nicolas Guaman’s accomplice, the man who facilitated the crime.
