Illegal Injures State Rep in Mass, Laughs That ‘Nothing Is Going to Happen to Me’

Arizona just acquired a poster boy for its policy of questioning people about their immigration status in the course of police investigations. Boston Fox 25 reports:

A serious car crash involving a local lawmaker and a suspected illegal immigrant is threatening to reignite 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 to the report, when told of the serious charges he would be facing, he just laughed.

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, a close associate of Barack Obama, three years ago revoked an executive order of former Gov. Mitt Romney, which gave state police the power to investigate immigration violations.

Naranjo, apparently aware of Gov. Patrick’s actions, averred that he was going back to “my country” (Mexico) so nothing would happen.

Donald Douglas of American Power has looked into Moran’s voting record, and finds him a big supporter of illegals:


I wonder if Moran is reconsidering his positions? {snip}
