Letter to the Editor: Illegal Means Illegal
The following letter was submitted by Gerry Dembrowski, who is running for Congress next year.
It was a warm, humid August evening. In the distance, a thunderous roar as I stood by Main Street in Milford. Police motorcycles with blazing lights escorted one of the most impressive processions of motorcycles I had ever seen. I could feel the grief in the procession as the motors screamed in anguish for the loss of a friend. That night was like no other. It left an indelible mark on the hearts and minds of over 2000 people who had gathered at dusk to mark the tragic death of 23-year-old Matthew Denice.
Although I never knew Matthew, loss of life- especially young and vibrant, is devastating. My thoughts and prayers are with his family because for them, life will never be the same. When a friend, family member, or spouse is taken from us it’s a life changing moment. Sometimes their taken by disease, sometimes by accident, but always leaving grieving hearts, longing for their return. Life, from the unborn to the elderly, is precious. But when a life full of promise is taken by preventable circumstances, the heartache is all consuming. Matthew's murder was preventable, and ultimately a result of political advancement.
If you or I harbored or offered aid to the person who killed another, we would be an accessory to the crime and would be charged with manslaughter. Because it’s an illegal alien who did this, Governor Patrick will give sanctuary to a murderer. Thank God for Lew Evangelidis who recognized the injustice, and enlisted Worcester County into Secure Communities.
Just two days after Matthew Denice's murder another illegal alien Onyango Obama was arrested for DUI in Framingham. Yes he’s related, a long lost uncle to President Obama, and he has an outstanding warrant for deportation by the US Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Why are illegal aliens gravitating to Massachusetts? Because the liberals say “technically, it's not illegal to be illegal in Massachusetts.” The federal level also resonates this sentiment, with the senate pushing the DREAM Act, giving amnesty to illegal aliens. In an internal U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service memo President Obama discussed ways to bring about “meaningful immigration reform absent legislative action,” without a Congressional vote.
Under our existing federal immigration laws illegal or 'undocumented' aliens are breaking the law. Amnesty to reward illegal behavior should never occur and anchor babies should not be allowed. Politicians continue to manipulate the law and prevent its enforcement. Until the existing law is enforced, illegal aliens will ravage our society and be rewarded by a duplicitous political agenda. We will continue to be haunted by “…it is not illegal to be illegal in Mass” until you take action to do something to change it!
