Tragedy throws harsh light on illegal immigration
RE “MILFORD tragedy: Suspect should have been deported’’ (Editorial, Sept. 12): The death of Matthew Denice was tragic. He died after being hit by a pickup truck allegedly driven by an illegal immigrant who was charged with drunk driving. At 23 years old, Denice had his whole life ahead of him. His loss will be felt by his family forever. I was so moved by the words of Matthew’s brother, Michael, given his obvious grief. He said, “I just want to say as a community we welcome immigration. Those who come here correctly, go through the process with the proper documents, we welcome. My question to you is, those who are here illegally, what is your solution to that?’’ He so eloquently stated a belief held by many. Immigration is not the problem; illegal immigration is.
