Mass. state rep injured by illegal, police powerless to report to ICE.
Massachusetts Attorney General and Worst Senate Candidate Ever Martha Coakley made news earlier this week by bragging that “technically, it’s not illegal to be illegal in Massachusetts.” Her state is now reaping the bitter fruit.
A serious car crash involving a local lawmaker and a suspected illegal immigrant is threatening to re-ignite already heated debates about immigration on Beacon Hill, according to police reports obtained by FOX25.
State Rep. Mike Moran of Brighton was rear-ended by a suspected illegal immigrant this week. The suspect was wearing a Mexican costume at the time of the crash where he slammed into Moran at 60 mph.
The suspect, 27-year-old Isaias Naranjo, was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, leaving the scene of an accident and driving without a valid license. According the report, when told of the serious charges he would be facing, he just laughed.
But because of action taken by Gov. Deval Patrick, state police were unable to notify immigration authorities that Naranjo might be illegal.
Three years ago, Patrick revoked an order by former governor Mitt Romney which gave state police power to investigate immigration violations.
Sorry Bay Staters, but I think Arizona will stick with our governor over yours.
