National Day of Remembrance for Those Killed by Illegal Aliens
By Jessica Vaughan, November 3, 2014
November 2nd was the fourth annual Natl Day of Remebrance to honor the thousands of Americans killed by illegal aliens. Events were held around the country, organized with the help of The Remembrance Project, a growing national organization dedicated to supporting the families of the victims and educating the public about the human cost of failing to enforce immigration laws.
The Massachusetts Day of Remembrance was held in Milford organized by the state director, Maureen Maloney whose son Matthew Denice was killed in August 2011, just a short distance from the park where the ceremony was held.
Denice was hit by Luis Guaman, an illegal alien driving drunk and unlicensed in a vehicle illegally provided to him. Denice survived the initial crash, but died after being dragged for a quarter of a mile as Guaman fled the scene.
Guaman had an appalling record of arrests for unlicensed driving (3 prior arrests for unlicensed driving) and he had served a year of probation for assaulting two police officers.
After years of delays resulting from a judge's order to tutor Guaman in the U.S. criminal justice process, protracted efforts by his attorney to secure an interpreter skilled in an indigenous Ecuadoran language (whose services ultimately were not needed as Guaman finally admitted that he preferred to communicate in Spanish), and the escape of a key witness, also an illegal alien who was released by ICE on an electronic monitoring bracelet despite a prior history of flight, Guaman was convicted of motor vehicle homicide and other charges in May 2014.
