    Let’s see….what does.. Santos, Vallega, Cuello, Perez and Diagne all have in common? Besides all being charged with major crimes – I’ll bet that at least 50% of them aren’t here legally (hint: anyone carrying fake IDs). Rape, robbery, weapons and assaults – definitely folks the city should be welcoming and paying for. Yeah. ok.

    How’s that sanctuary city thing working out for us? The progressives tell us that the illegals don’t cost us any money! hmmmm…. I think they do. Lots of money. Time to end coddling these criminals and start throwing them out and keeping them out.

  2. Jim Dunne says:

    And “Harry.” I’ll guess that’s your Wampanoag name?

    If the internet existed in 1905, someone would’ve made the exact same comment about Mr. Colin Kelly and Mr. Andrew Dineen.

  3. Harry says:

    Jim, it has to be tough defending illegals after the Milford incident and Obama’s drunk uncle. I have to give you credit though — at least you’re slinging away at it. Not doing such a hot job, but you’re trying.

    Pssstt…. they had newspapers in 1905. Go back and cite for me those crimes being commited by Kellys, Odonell’s, Flanerys, etc… – didn’t happen. Maybe some Dunne’s are in there?

    Bottom line: Illegal is illegal. You can’t slice it any other way. And they are costing huge amounts of money.

    This is why I love reading the Somerville News online. Not for the articles, but for the reactionary daytime drunks in the comment section.

  5. Jim Dunne says:

    For example, this article from 1883 discussing “Pauper Immigration” in the Boston Evening Transcript, as well as a corresponding article in the same paper regarding “assisted emigration” presented to President Arthur:

    http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=WA80AAAAIBAJ&sjid=HSMIAAAAIBAJ&pg=3182,5565689
    —————————–
    Or an article in the New York Times from 8/11/1874, discussing the rise of Irish immigration into New England (note – formatting is a bit wonky, it starts about half way down on the left column, below the blank space, then continues on the right. If you are zoomed out it will appear more obvious, if it is zoomed in it will be less so):

    http://query.nytimes.com/mem/archive-free/pdf?res=F30A14F73A5D1A7493C3A81783D85F408784F9

    I found this passage particularly interesting:
    “New-England is undergoing many changes which are due quite as much to the tendency of her natives to crowd together in large centres, as to the increase of her foreign population. Crime is rather more frequent in the principal cities than it was even a dozen years ago. Murders are much more numerous than of old. It appears difficult to secure, in some of the States, anything like decent legislation on the subject of the sale of liquors, although it is generally admitted that ardent spirits provoke much of the violent crime.”

    —————————–
    And finally, an especially apropos piece from the 7/21/1907 NY Times (forgive my overuse of what you probably consider a liberal rag, but they have a great deal of content archived and didn’t go out of business):

    http://query.nytimes.com/mem/archive-free/pdf?res=F30E10FF345417738DDDA80A94DF405B878CF1D3

    The crazy foreign outcast who had come down from Boston to kill in New York was apparently a fellow by the name of Becker.

    Anyhow, we don’t really have any evidence that any of the people mentioned in this article are here illegally, you are simply assuming so. Why? I’m not sure, you tell me. Would your opinion of their status change if you found out they were here totally legally, and just happened to be lawbreakers who were also American citizens, as you assume Mr. Kiley and Mr. Dinneen are? If it would, then you’re exhibiting the same attitude that lead Brahmin business owners to post “N.I.N.A.” on their doors.

    Jim, why did I say 1/2 are probably here illegally? Connect the dots. … see: “forgery of documents”, “identity fraud, Registry of Motor Vehicles identity card fraud” and ” furnishing a false name or Social Security number” for a hint as to why I believe they’re not legaly here.

    I support legal immigration – from anywhere. I just don’t support illegal immigration. I know many people who went through the process to become citiizens, so why should these criminals be allowed to skate around the system? We need immigration – our birth rates are too low, but we need LEGAL immigration. And we need to know who is crossing our borders and staying here.
